Led Zeppelin

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

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
Who sings sometimes
All of our thoughts are misgvien

There's a feeling 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

And it's whispered that soon if we all
Call the tune
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

And it makes me wonder

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
There's still time to change the road you're on

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The Piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Led Zeppelin.
