The Song Remains The Same

(Page/Plant) (5:24)

I had a dream
Oh, yeahCrazy dream,
Anything I wanted to know
Any place I needed to go
Hear my song

People don't you listen now?
Sing along!
Oh, You don't know what you're missing now.
Any little song that you know
Everything that's small has to grow.
And slow it grows!
Push push, yeah!
California sunlight,
sweet Calcutta rain
Honolulu starbright--
the song remains the same.

ooh! ooh!

Here we go!
Honolulu now...
Sing out Hare Hare,
dance the Hoochie Koo.
City lights are oh so bright,
as we go sliding


sliding through.

The Rain Song

(Page/Plant) (7:32)

It is the springtime of my loving-
the second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing
-so little warmth I've 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.
Ain't so hard to recognize-
These things are clear to all from
time to time.


Talk Talk-

I've felt the coldness of my winter
I've never thought it would ever go
I've 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, upon us a little rain must fall.
Just a little rain?

ooooh, yeah
yeah yeah!

Over The Hills And Far Away
(Page/Plant) (4:42)
Hey lady--you got the love I need
Maybe more than enough.
Oh Darling... walk a while with me
Ooh, you've got so much...
Many have 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, ooh!
You really ought to know
I really ought to know!


You know I should,
you know I should,
you know I should...
