The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
GOOD TIMES BAD TIMES
Jimmy Page / John Paul Jones / John Bonham
In the days of my youth I was told what it means to be a man.
An' now I've reached that age, I've tried to do all those things the best I can.
No matter how I try, I find my way to the same old jam.


Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share.
Well my woman left home for a brown eyed man, but I still don't seem to care.

Sixteen I fell in love with a girl as sweet as could be.
It only took a coupl'a days 'til she was rid of me.
She swore that she would be all mine and love me 'til the end.
But when I whispered in her ear I lost another friend, oh.


Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share.
Well my woman left home for a brown eyed man, but I still don't seem to care.

Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share.
Well my woman left home for a brown eyed man, but I still don't seem to care.

I know what it means to be alone.
I sure do wish I was at home.
I don't care what the neighbours say.
I'm gonna love you each and every day.
You can feel the beat within my heart.
Realize sweet babe, we ain't never gonna part.
I feel good when I look into your eyes.

The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
NIGHT FLIGHT
John Paul Jones / Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
I received a message from my brother 'cross the water.
He sat laughin' as he wrote "the end's in sight."
So I said goodbye to all my friends an' packed my hopes
Inside a matchbox 'cause I know it's time to fly.


Oh-oh-oh-hohh yeah, come on, meet me in the mornin',
Meet me in the middle of the night.
Ah-oh-yeah the mornin' light is comin'.
Don't it make ya wanna care an' feel alright?

Ooh yeah.
Ah-hahh.

I just jumped a train that never stops.
So now, so how do I know I'll never finish payin' for my ride?
Someone pushed a gun into my hand, tell me I'm the type of man
To fight the fight when I been cryin'.


Oh-oh-oh-hoh yeah hah, come on, meet me in the mornin',
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night yeah.
Hoh~oh well the mornin' light is comin'.
Well don't it make you wanna care an' feel alright?

Oh mama, well I think it's time I'm leavin',
Nothin' here to make me stay.
Whoah mama, well it must be time I'm goin',
They're knockin' down them doors, they're tryin'a take me away.
Ahh,                                                                                     shoop, shoop, shoop.

Please Mr. Brakeman, won't ya ring your bell
   Ah-hah. Ah-hah. Ah-hah. Ah-hah.
And ring it loud and clear. Unhh.
   Ah-hah. Ah-hah. Ah-hah.
Please Mr. Fireman, a-won't ya ring your bell,
   Ah-hah. Ah-hah. Ah-hah. Ah-hah.
Tell the people they gotta fly away from here.
   Ah-hah. Ah-hah. Ah-hah.

Ohh, I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby,
Somethin' made her have a very, very special smile.
We are in the middle of a change in destination,
When the train stops, all together we will smile.


Oh-oh-oh-hoh come on, come on now, meet me in the mornin',
Won't ya meet me in the middle of the night, night, na-na-night-night.
Hoh-hoh-yeah, everybody know the mornin' time is comin'.
Don't it make ya wanna a-feel alright? Ah, ah yeah.

A-make me feel alri-ight.
Fly now baby.
I gotta fly yeah.
Fly my baby.
Ahhh~ahh-e-hah-e-hah. Unnh!
Unnh! Unnh! Unnh!




The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
THAT'S THE WAY
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
I don't know how I'm gonna tell you
I can play with you no more.
I don't know how I'm gonna do what mama told me
My friend, the boy next door.

I can't believe what people sayin':
You gonna let your hair hang down.
I'm satisfied to sit here working all day long.
You're in the darker side of to__wn.

An' when I'm out I see you walkin'.
Why don't your eyes see me?
And could it be you've found another game to play?
A-what did mama say to me__?


That's the way.
Ohh that's the way it oughta be__ yeah, yeah.
Mama said that's the way it oughta stay__~yeah, yeah.
Oooh__.

And yesterday I saw you standing by the river,
And weren't those tears that filled your eyes?
And all the fish that lay in dirty water dyin',
Had they got you hypnotized?

And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But all that lives is born to die.
And so I say to you that nothing really mattered
An' all you do is stand and cry.

I don't know what to say about it
When all your ears have turned away,
But now's the time to look and look again at what ya see.
Is that the way it oughta stay?


That's the way.
That's the way it oughta be__. Whoah don't you know now.
Mama said, mama said that's the way it's gonna stay__ yeah.
Ahh. Ahh~ooh-ahhh__~ahhh__~ahhh__~ahhh.

Ahhh__.

Bert Berns / Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

A-gonna feel all-a-my, all-a-my, all-a-my care.

Just about as nice as she could be ahh.

So I made up my mind:
I'm gonna crawl right back to you woman,
I'm gonna plead and plead and plead yeah,
'Til you're here by my side.
I can't even walk down the same
Old streets we used to walk down
'Cause I keep thinkin' 'bout all the good times.
Keep thinkin' 'bout it, I wanna make you mine.

    when we walked through the trees together.

You been gone too long.
You know we had such a real good time.

Whoah, here they come!

DOWN BY THE SEASIDE
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
Down by the seaside,
See the boats go sailin',
But can the people hear, oh
What the little fish is sayin'?


Ahhh~ah~ah~ahh.
Oooh~ooh~ooh~ooh. Oh, oh.
The people turned away.
Ah the people turned away.

Down in the city streets,
See all the folk go racin', racin'.
There's no time left, no, no
To pass the time of day~yeah.


Ahhh~ah~ah~ahh.
Oooh~ooh~ooh~ooh.
Yea-yea-yeah, ah the people turned away.
The people turned away,
                       so far away,
                       so far away.

See how they run.
See how they run.
See how they run.
See how they run.

Run, run ah.
Run, run ah.
Run, run ahh.

Do you still do the twist?
Do ya find that you remember things that well?
I wanna tell you
Some go twistin' every day
Though sometimes it's awful hard to tell,
Ah-hah, ah-hah, ah-hah, oh.

Out in the country,
Hear the people singin'.
Singin' 'bout the growin'.
Knowin' where they're goin'.
Yeah they know, yeah they know.


Ahhh~ah~ah~ahh.
Oooh~ooh~ooh~ooh.
Oh, oh, oh, oh the people turned away.
Yeah the people turned away.

Sing loud for the sunshine,
And pray hard for the rain
And show your love for Lady Nature
And she will come back again.
Yes she will, yes she will.


Ahhh~ah~ah~ahh.
Oooh~ooh~ooh~ooh.
Oh, oh, oh the people turned away.
The people turned away.
Don't they know they never win?



The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
OUT ON THE TILES
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant / John Bonham
As I walk down the highway
All I do is sing this song
And a train that's passin' my way helps
The rhythm move along.
There is no doubt about the words are clear,
The voice is strong,
It's oh so strong.

Just a simple guy
An' I live from day to day.
A ray of sunshine melts my frown
And blows my blues away.
There's nothin' more that I can say
But on a day like today
I'll pass the time away
And walk a quiet mile with you.


All I need from you is all your love.
All ya gotta give to me is all your love.
All I need from you is all your love.
All ya gotta give to me is all your love.

Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah.
Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah.

I'm so glad I'm livin',   Stop.
I'm gonna tell the world I am.
I got me a fine woman
Who says that I'm her man.
A-one thing that I know for sure,
Gon' give her lotta lovin'
Like nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody can.

Standin' in the noon-day sun
Tryin' to flag a ride.
People go and people come,
See my rider right by my side.
It's a total disgrace,
They set the pace,
It must be a race.
The best thing I can do is ru__n.


All I need from you is all your love.
All ya gotta give to me is all your love.
All I need from you is all your love.
All ya gotta give to me is all your love.

Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah.
Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah. Hey.

Ahh-yeah. Ahh-yeah. Ah-yeah.
Ohh drive my van I said I'd keep on walk.
All I bloody said was "keep on walk".

Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah.
Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah. Ooh yeah.
Ahh-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah-yeah~yeah.
Ahh-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah-yeah~yeah.

SICK AGAIN
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
From the window of your rented limousine
I caught your pretty blue eyes.
One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen,
Painted lady in the city of lies.


Ahh, a-do ya know my name?
Do I look the same?
Ya know I'm the one you want baby.
I must be the one you need yeah.

Clutchin' pages from your 'Teenage Dream'
In the lobby of 'The Hotel Paradise'.
Through the circus of the L.A. queens,
How fast you learn the downhill slide.


Ohh, how ya play the game.
Still don't know your name.
Ya know I'm the one you want baby.
Ooh yes, I got to be the one you nee__d
    yeah~yeah~yeah~yeah.

Oh, you've gotta tell me.

Just a minute, just a minute.

Lips like cherries on the brow of our queen.
Come on, flash it across ya eyes.
Said ya dug me since ya were thirteen,
Then ya giggle as ya heave an' sigh.


Ahh, do ya know my name?
Do I look the same?
Baby, I got to tell ya, I'm the one you want
And everybody knows I'm the one you nee__d
    yeah~yeah.

Oh get it, get it out.
C'mon now.
Come on now.
Come on now.

Hours, hours were the moments in between.
Ah baby, how the time flies.
The fun of comin', oh the pain in leavin'.
A-baby, dry those silver eyes.


Ohh, do ya know my name?
Do I look the same?
Ya know I'm the one you want.
Ooh~ooh yeah~yes, I'm the one you nee__d
    yeah~yeah.

Oooh, that's right.
Oooh yeah, that's right.
Oooh, that's right.
That's right.
That's right.
Oooh yeah, that's right.
That's right.

Ahh-ah-ah-ah.
Ahh-ah-ah-ah.

HOT DOG
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
One, two, three, four.

Ahh hot dog!

Well, well I, well I just got into town today
To find my girl has gone away,
She took the Greyhound at the General Store.
I searched myself I searched the town
An' when I finally did set down,
I find myself no wiser than before.

She said we couldn't do no wrong.
No other love could be so strong.
She'd locked up my heart in her bottom drawer.
Now she took my heart, she took my keys
From in my old blue dungarees
An' I'll never go to Texas anymore.


Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do.
She took my love an' walked right out the door
And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure,
I'm gonna give her somethin' like she never had before.

I took her love at seventeen,
A little late these days it seems,
But they said heaven's well worth waitin' for.
I took her word I took it all
Beneath a sign that said U-haul.
She'd left angels hangin' 'round for more.

Ahh go.


Yeah now my baby's gone I don't know what to do.
She took my love an' walked right out the door
And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure,
I'm gonna give her somethin' like she never had before-yeah.

I thought I had it all sewn up:
Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck,
But folks, yeah, she was after somethin' more.
I never did quite understand
All that talk about rockin' bands,
But they just rolled my doll right out the door.

Ooh-yeah they just rolled my doll right out the door.
Wha-well they just rolled my doll right out the do__or.




The Led Zeppelin Discography - Lyrics
CAROUSELAMBRA
John Paul Jones / Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
Sisters of the way-side biding time in quiet peace
Await their place within the ring of calm.   Ah~ahh.
Still stand to turn in seconds of release,
Await the call they know may never come.
In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon
To jeopardize the course, upset the run.   Ah~ahh.
All was joy an' hands were raised towards the sun,
As love in the halls of plenty overrun.


Ah-ahh. Ah-ah-ah-ahh.
Ah-ahh. Ah-ah-ah-ahh.

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast,
Unending dances shadowed on the day.   Ah~ahh.
Within the wall, their daunting formless keep
Preserved the joy that kept their doubts at bay.
Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep.
Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray.   Ah~ahh.
And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed,
But no one seemed to question in any way.


Ah-ahh. Ah-ah-ah-ahh.
Ah-ahh. Ah-ah-ah-ahh.

How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land
To seek the unsuspecting and the weak.   Ah~ahh.
An' powerless the fabled sat, too slow to lift a hand
Toward the foe that threatened them from the deep.
Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand
Adrift upon a sea of futile speech?   Ah~ahh.
And throw the bane and make them stay as planned,
There's no terrace we cannot reach.


I'm singin' ah-ahh. Ah-ah-ah-ahh.
Ah-ahh. Ah-ah-ah-ahh.

Ohh-hohh.
Ohh-ohh.
Ohh-ohh.
Ohh!

Ohh.
Oh.

Ohh.

Where was your word? Where did you go__?
Where was your helping? Where was your bow?
                                                                              Bo__w.

Dull is the armour, cold is the da__y.
Hard was your journey, dark was the wa__y.
                                                                   Wa__y.

I heard the word. I couldn't stay. Ohh.
I couldn't stand it ano__ther day,
                                another day ay-hey,
                                another day,
                                another day.

Touched by the timely comin'.
'Roused from the keeper's sleep.
Release the grip, throw down the ke__y.

Held now within the knowin'.
Rest now within the beat.
Take of the fruit, but guard the see__d.

They had to stay.

Held now within the knowin'.
Rest now within the beat.
Take of the fruit, but guard the see__d.

Oh, take of the fruit, but guard the see__d.
