IMMIGRANT SONG
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

Two, three, four.

Ah~ah~ahhh-ah!.
Ah~ah~ahhh-ah!.
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.

Hammer of the Gods
Will drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, and sing and cry:
"Valhalla I am comi__ng."


On we sweep with, with threshing oar.
Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah~ah~ahhh-ah!.
Ah~ah~ahhh-ah!.
An' we come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.

How soft your fields so green
Can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war.
We are your overlo__rds.


On we sweep with threshing oar.
Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you better stop
And rebuild all your ruins.
For peace and trust can win the day
Despite of all your losing.

Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh.
Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh.
Ah hah hah hah hah hah.

Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh.
Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh.
Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh. Ooh~ooh.

FRIENDS
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

Bright light almost blindin',
Black night still there shinin',
I can't stop, keep on climbin'
Lookin' for what I knew.

Had a friend, she once told me
"You got a love, you ain't lonely",
Now she's gone an' left me only
Lookin' for what I knew.


Mmm I'm tellin' you now,
The greatest thing you ever can do now,
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now,
It's very easy just-a.

Met a man on the roadside cryin',
Without a friend there's no denyin'
You're incomplete, there'll be no findin'
Lookin' for what you knew.

So anytime somebody needs ya,
Don't let 'em down, although it grieves ya,
Some day you'll need someone like they do
Lookin' for what you knew.


Mm, mmm I'm tellin' you now,
The greatest thing you ever can do now,
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now,
It's very easy just-a.

Ohhh-yeah~ahhh-nah.
Mahh-ma.
Mahh-ma.
Mahh-ma.
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mahh__.


I'm tellin' you now,
The greatest thing you ever can do now,
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now,
It's very easy.
It's very easy.
It's very easy.
It's ea__sy~yeah~ah~yeah~ahh-yeah.

CELEBRATION DAY
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant / John Paul Jones

Her face is cracked from smilin',
All the fears that she's been hidin'
And it seems that pretty soon
Everybody's gonna know.

And her voice is sore from shoutin',
Cheerin' winners who are losin'
And she wonders if their days are few
And soon they'll have to go.


My, my, my, I'm so happy,
I'm gonna join a band yeah.
We gonna dance and sing in celebration.
We're in the promised la__nd.

She hears them talk of new ways
To protect the home she lives in
Then she wonders what it's all about
When they break down the door.

Her name is Brown or White or Black,
You know her very well.
Ya hear her cries of mercy
As the winners toll the bell.


My, my, my, I'm so happy,
I'm gonna join a band yeah.
We gonna sing and dance in celebration.
We're in the promised la__nd.

Oh there is a train that leaves the station,
Headin' for your destination,
But the price you pay to nowhere
Has increased a dollar more. Yes it has.

And if you walk you're gonna get there
Although it takes you that little longer
And when you see it in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan.

Ohhh~yeah-moan.
Ohhh~yeah~yeah~yeah~yeah~yeah moan, moan.

You're gone. You're gone, get gone yeah.
You're gone yeah.

Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma,
        ma, ma, ma, ma you are gone.
You are gone. You're gone yeah.

If you walk you're gonna get there
Although it takes a little longer
An' when you see it in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan.

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.

A-what did you bring me my dear friends
Keep me from the gallows pole?

Save me from the wrath of this man.
Please take him,
Save me from the wrath of this mad-man.

Hangman, hangman upon your face a smile,
Pr' tell me that I'm free to ride,
Ride for many mile, mile, mile.

TANGERINE
Jimmy Page

One, two...
One, two, three, four, one, two.

Measuring a summer's day.
I only find it slips away to grey.
The hours, they bring me pain.


Tangerine, tangerine,
Living reflections from a dream.
I was her love, she was my queen
And now a thousand years betwee__n.

Thinking how it used to be.
Does she still remember times like these?
To think of us again, and I do.


Tangerine, tangerine,
Living reflections from a dream.
I was her love, she was my queen
And now a thousand years betwee__n.

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__.

BRON-Y-AUR STOMP
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant / John Paul Jones

Ahh caught you smilin' at me,
That's the way it should be
Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine.

Ahh all the good times we had,
I sang love songs so glad,
Always smilin' never sad, so fine.


As we walk down the country lanes
I'll be singin' a song, you hear me callin' your name.
Hear the wind whisper in the trees,
Tellin' mother nature 'bout you an' me.

Well if the sun shines so bright
Or on our way it's dark as night,
The road we choose is always right, so fine.

Ahh could any love be so strong
When so many loves go wrong.
Will our love go on and on and on and on
                                                and on and on?


As we walk down the country lanes
I singin' a song, hear me callin' your name.
Hear the wind whisper in the trees,
Tellin' mother nature 'bout-a you an' me.

My, my la la la.
C'mon now it ain't too far.
Tell your friends all around the world
Ain't no companion like a blue eyed merle.
C'mon now well let me tell ya
What you're missin', missin' 'round them brick wall.

So of one thing I am sure,
It's a friendship so pure,
Angels singin' all 'round my door, so fine.

Yeah, ain't but one thing to do,
Spend my natural life with you,
You're the finest dog I knew, so fine.


When you're old and your eyes are dim
There ain't no 'Old Shep' gonna happen again.
We'll still go walkin' down country lanes,
I'll sing the same old song, hear me call your name.
