Led Zeppelin lyrics - Album: Houses of the Holy [1973]

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.

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.

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 know

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?)

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)

(Whatever happened to Rosie and the Originals?)

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.

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.
