The Song Remains The Same
(Page/Plant) (5:24)

I had a dream- crazy dream
Anything I wanted to know
Any place I needed to go

Hear my song- sing along
Any little song that you know
Everything that's small has to grow.

California sunlight, sweet Calcutta rain
Honolulu starbright- the song remains the same.

Sing out Hare Hare, dance the Hoochie Koo.
City lights are oh so bright, as we go sliding
sliding through.back to top
The Rain Song
(Page/Plant) (7:32)

This is the springtime of my loving-
the second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing-
so little warmth I felt before.
It isn't hard to feel me glowing-
I watched the fire that grew so low.
It is the summer of my smiles-
flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes
it is to you I give this tune.
It isn't hard to recognise-
these things are clear to all from
time to time.

Talk Talk-
I felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go
I cursed the gloom that set upon us
but I know that I love you so
but I know that I love you so.

These are the seasons of emotion
And like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion-
I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient-
Upon us all a little rain
must fall.back to top
Over The Hills And Far Away
(Page/Plant) (4:42)

Hey lady- you got the love I need
oh Maybe- more than enough
oh Darling Darling walk a while with me
- oh you've got so much-

Many times I loved
Many times been bitten
Many times I've gazed
Along the open road.

Many times I've lied
Many times I've listened
Many times I've wondered
How much there is to know.

Many dreams come true
And some have silver linings
I live for my dream
And a pocketful of gold.

Mellow is the man
Who knows what he's been missing
Many many men
Can't see the open road.

Many is a word
That only leaves you guessing
Guessing 'bout a thing
You really ought to know
You really ought to knowback to top
The Crunge
(Bonham/Jones/Page/Plant) (3:10)

I wanna tell you bout my good thing I aint
disclosing no names- but she is a good friend
I aint gonna tell you where she comes from if I tell
you you wont come again I aint gonna tell you that
I should do but I know now let me tell you bout
my girl open a newspaper and what do I see
see my girl looking at me and when she walks,
she walks and when she talks, she talks and
when she looks at me in the eye shes my baby
I wanna make her mine tell me baby what you
want me to do you want me to love you, love
some other man too aint gonna call me mr. pitiful
no I dont need no respect from nobody no

I aint gonna tell you nothing I cant tell
you no more shes my baby let me tell you I love
her so and shes the woman I really wanna love
and let me tell you more shes my baby she lives
next door shes the one a woman the one a woman
that I know I aint gonna tell you one thing that
you really ought to know shes my baby and I love
her so shes the one that really makes me whirl
and twirl and shes got the kind of love that makes
me fill the whole world shes the kind of girl
makes me jump and shout shes the kind of girl
lets me know what its all about take it take it

Excuse me
Oh will ya excuse me
I'm just trying to find the bridge
Has anybody seen the bridge?

(Have you seen the bridge?)

I ain't seen the bridge!

(Where's that confounded bridge?)back to top
Dancing Days
(Page/Plant) (3:40)

Dancing days are here again
As the summer evenings grow
I got my flower, I got my power
I got a woman who knows.


You know it's alright
I said it's alright
You know it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?

Crazy ways are evident
In the way that you're wearing your clothes
Suppin' boze is precedent
As the evening starts to glow.


I told your mamma I'd get you home
But I didn't tell her I had no car
I saw a lion he was standing alone
With a tadpole in a jar.


Dancing days are here again
As the summer evening grows
You are my flower, you are my power
You are my woman who knows.

D'yer Mak'er
(Bonham/Jones/Page/Plant) (4:19)

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
Baby please don't go.

Ay ay ay ay ay ay
All those tears I cry ay ay ay ay ay
All those tears I cry ay ay ay ay ay
Baby please don't go.


When I read the letter you wrote
it made me mad mad mad
When I read the news that it brought me
It made me sad sad sad.
But I still love you so
I can't let you go
I love you- ooh baby I love you.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Every breath I take oh oh oh oh oh
Every move I make oh oh oh oh oh
Baby please don't go.

Ay ay ay ay ay ay
You hurt me to my soul ay ay ay ay ay
You hurt me to my soul ay ay ay ay ay
Darling please don't go.


Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
(Baby please don't go)

No Quarter

Close the doors, put out the light
You know they won't be home tonight
The snow falls hard and don't you know
The winds of Thor are blowing cold
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through
They choose the path where no-one goes
They hold no quarter.
They ask no quarter.

Walking 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 howling more
They carry news that must get through
To build a dream for you and me
They choose the path where no-one goes
They hold no quarter, they ask no quarter.back to top
The Ocean
(Bonham/Jones/Page/Plant) (4:28)

Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain
Hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain
Ain't no time to pack my bag, my foots outside the door
Got a date, can't be late for the high hopes hailla ball.

Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar
Play for free, play for me and play a whole lot more
Singing of the good things and the sun that lights the day
Singing to the ocean, has the ocean lost its way.

Sitting round singing songs til the night turns into day
Used to sing on the mountains but the mountains washed away
Now I'm singing all my songs to the girl who won my heart
She is only three years old and it's a real fine way to start.
