The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
ROCK AND ROLL
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant / John Paul Jones / John Bonham
O.k.
[ Let's go! ]


Oooh yeah, it's been a long time since I rock an' rolled.
It's been a long time since I did the stroll.
Ooh baby, let me get it back, let me get back, let me get back,
Baby where I come from.


It's been a long time, been a long time,
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Yes it has.

It's been quite a while since we walked in the moonlight,
A-makin' vows that just wouldn't work right.
Ooh baby, open your arms, open your arms, open your arms,
Baby let my love come runnin' in.


It's been a long time, been a long time,
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Rock it!

It's been quite a while since the book of love.
I can't stand the tears of a life with no love.
Ooh baby, carry me back, carry me back, carry me back
Baby where I come from.


It's been a long time, been a long time,
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Sure has.

Ooh-yeah, ooh-yeah.
Ooh-yeah, ooh-yeah.
Ooh-yeah, ooh-yeah.
Ahh rock it! Rock it!

Ooh-yeah, ah~ooh-yeah.
Ooh-yeah, ah~ooh-yeah.


It's been a long time, been a long time,
A-lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.




The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
CELEBRATION DAY
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant / John Paul Jones
Her face is cracked from smilin',
All the tears that she's been hidin'
And she wonders pretty soon
Everybody's gonna know.

And her voice is sore from shoutin',
Cheerin' winners who are losin'
And she wonders if their days are few
An' soon they'll have to go.


My, my, my, I'm so happy,
I'm gonna join the band.
An' we're gonna sing an' dance in celebration.
A-we're in the promised land.

She hears them talk of new ways
To protect the home she lives in
She wonders what it's all about
When they break down the door.

Her name is Brown or White or Black,
You know her very well.
Ya hear her cries of mercy
As the winners toll the bell.


My, my, I'm so happy,
I'm gonna join the band.
An' we're gonna dance an' sing in celebration.
A-we're in the promised land.

There's a train that leaves the station,
Headin' for your destination,
But the price ya pay to nowhere
Has increased a dollar more.

And if ya walk you're gonna get there
Although it takes a little longer
An' when ya see it in the distance
You will wring your hands an' moan.

Ohh yeah a-you will moan,
                  a-you will moan,
                  a-you'll kneel an' moan.
Ohhh yeah! It's alright!

Good evenin'!

THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
Thank you.
In between last time we came an' this time
we managed to get an' album out called
"Houses Of The Holy" an'...
An' this's-a, somethin' that we decided
was an apt title for a thing that's called
"The Song Remains The Same".

I had a dream oh now
Crazy dream oh~oh hoh~oh.
Anything I wanted to know,
Any place I needed to go.

Hear my song.
People won't ya listen now?
Sing along yeah,
You don't know what you're missin' now.
Any little song that ya know
Everything that's small has to grow
And it always grows.
Push, push, yeah! Ahhh.

California sunlight,
Sweet Calcutta rain
Honolulu starbright
The song remains the sa__me.
Ooh~ooh yeah! Ooh yeah!
                            Ooh yeah!
                         A-ooh yeah!

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon!
A-do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!
A-push! Push! A-push!

Ahh dig it! Dig it!

People!

Sing out Hare Hare,
Dance the Hoochie Koo.
City lights oh so bright,
As we go slidin', slidin',
                 slidin', slidin',
                 slidin', slidin',
                 slidin', slidin',
                 slidin'...

Ahhh here we go.
C'mon!
Push! Push! Push! Push! Push!
Ahhh__.

RAIN SONG
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
It is the springtime of my lovin'
The second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growin'
So little warmth I felt before.
Ahhh~it isn't hard to feel me glowin'
I watched the fire that grew so low.

Ah-hoh~oh~oh.
Ah-hoh~oh~oh. Ahh-oh.

It is the summer of my smiles
Flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes hohh
It is to you I give this tune.
It isn't hard to recognise hoh~oh~oh
These things are clear
To all from time to time. Ah-hoh~oh~oh.

Talk, talk to me, talk to me.
Now listen!
I felt the coldness of my winter ooh~ooh-yeah~yeah!
I never thought it would ever go__
I cursed the gloom that set upon us, upon us
But I know a-that I love you so
Ohh-yeah an' it feels good, it feels good now.
But I know that I love you so.

These are the seasons of emotion
And like the wind they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion
I see the torch we all must hold.
An' people this is the mystery of the quotient
Upon us all, ahh~ah a little rain must fall.
Juh- juh- juh- just a little rain ohh~yeah I know

Ahhh__.

The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
NO QUARTER
John Paul Jones / Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
Close the door, put out the light
You know they won't be home tonight. Oh~ooh~oh~oh.
The snow falls hard an' don't you know
The winds of Thor are blowin' cold cold cold col col col...
They're wearin' steel that's bright an' true oh, oh-hoh-hoh,
To build a dream for me an' you ah-hah~ah,
They choose the path where no-one goe__s.

They hold no quarter, oh hoh,
They ask, they ask no quarter, no quarter oh.

Walkin' side by side with death
The devil mocks their every step
The snow drives back the foot that's slow
The dogs of doom are howlin' more more more more more...
They carry news that must get through
To build a dream for me an' you ahh yes they do,
A-they choose the path where no-one goe__s.

They hold no quarter,
They ask,   ask,   they ask,  ask,
                               they ask,  ask,
                               they ask   ask   no quarter.   ...arter.

Oh what misery without quarter.
Oh the pain, the pain without quarter. Oh-oh-oh.
Ooh yeah   Ooh,   ooh yeah,   ooh yeah,   ooh yeah.   ooh yeah.
Ahh give me quarter, quarter, quarter.   quarter.
Oh give me...   Oh give me...

John Paul Jones the piano.




The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
This's a song of hope...

There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
An' when she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.


Ooh~ooh~ooh ooh~ooh~ooh~ooh~ooh.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird that sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

An' I think you can see that.
Ohh.


And it makes me wonder, sure does.
Oh hoh-hoh, hoh~ooh-oh~ooh~oh~ooh yes sir.

There's a feelin' I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking.


Ah-hah. Ah-hah.
Ah-hah. Ah-hah. Ahhh~ahh~oh~ooh~oh~ooh
                                                   ~oh~ooh~oh~ooh
                                                   ~oh~ooh~oh~ooh~oh~oh~oh.

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
A-then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

Does anybody remember laughter?


Baby, oh yes!
Just give it to me, give it to me, give it to me.

Sure does, sure does.
But I got some good news, listen...

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by,
But in the long run
And there's still time to change the road you're on. I hope so.


Ooh.   Ahh baby make ya,
                  don't it make ya,
                  don't it make ya,
                  don't it make ya,
                  don't it make ya.
A-wait a minute, a-wait a minute.

Your head is hummin' and it won't go
In case ya don't know,
The piper's callin' you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whisperin' wind?


Ahh-hah-hah~ahhh.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadow's taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all kno__w
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold yeah
And if-a you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all is one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll, not to roll.
Don't make me roll.

An' she's buying a stairway to heaven.
Ah~ahhh~oh~ah~oh.
