ACHILLES LAST STAND
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

It was an April mornin'
When they told us we should go
And as I turned to you, you smiled at me,
How could we say no?
Whoah the fun to have,
To live the dreams we always had.
Whoah the songs to sing
When we at last return again.

You set me off a glancing kiss
To those who claim they know,
Below the streets the seaman hears,
The devil is in his ho__le.
Whoah to sail away
To sandy lands an' other days.
Whoah to touch the dream
That hides inside and never is seen, yeah.

Into the sun the south the north,
Lies the first of hope.
Th' shackles of commitment fell
In pieces on the ground.
Whoah to ride the wind,
To tread the air above the din.
Whoah to laugh aloud,
With dancin' eyes above the crowds, yeah.

To seek the man whose pointing hand,
The giant step unfolds,
Will guide us from the curving path
That churns up into sto__ne.
If one bell should ring
In celebration for a king,
So fast the heart should beat,
As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah.

Oooh__.

Days went by when you and I
Made an eternal summers glow.
It's far away an' distant,
Our mutual time to gro__w.
Whoah the sweet refrain
Soothes the soul an' calms the pain.
Oh Albion remain,
Sleeping now to rise again.

Wandering, wandering
One place to rest the search.
For the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the Earth.

For the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the Earth.
From the Ea__rth,
Ea__rth.
Ea__rth.
I know the way, know the way,
  &nbspknow the way, know the way.

Ea__rth.
I know the way, know the way,
  &nbspknow the way, know the way.


Ea__rth.
Ea__rth.

Ahh-ah-ah. Ahh-ah-ah.
Ahh-ah-ah. Ahh-ah-ah.
Ahh-ah-ah. Ahh-ah-ah.
Ahh-ah-ah. Ahh-ah-ah.

When the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the Earth.
Ohh~
          Ahh-ah-ah.

Ohh~           Ahh-ah-ah.
~ohh~         Ahh-ah-ah.

Ahh-ah-ah. Ahh-ah-ah.

In the city of the damned.

To fame it deals a losin' hand.

And now your stage is empty
Pull down the curtain baby, please
Fold up your sho__w.

Could not stand to fry in there.

ROYAL ORLEANS
John Bonham / John Paul Jones / Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

One time love,
Take care how you use it,
An' try to make it last all night.
An' if you take your pick,
Be careful how ya choose it,
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite.

Feel it bite.

A man that I know,
Went down to Louisiana.
Had himself a bad, bad fire.
An' when the sun beats through,
John Cameron he sees Sandy.
He kissed her whiskers left an' right.

Whiskers!

Now, now, now a fight subsides
Out at a hotel in the Quarter.
Our friendship took a bash tonight.
Now love gets hot.
Look far for a sea with water.
Poor old whiskers set that room alight.

Whiskers!

Down on Bourbon street,
You know it's right.
You can see my friends,
They run around us in the night.
Almost everywhere,
'Til the closet's bare.
Run for the razor, fun,
Doin' up my hair.

New Orleans queens
Sure know how to schmooze it.
Maybe for some that seems alright.
When I step out
I strut down with my sugar.
She better not talk like Barry White.

Now, one time love,
Take care how you use it,
Try to make it last all night.
An' if you take your pick,
Be careful how ya choose it,
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite-ah.

HOTS ON FOR NOWHERE
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

I was burned in the heat of the mornin',
Though it could'a been the heat of the day.
When I learned how my time had been wasted,
A tear fell as I turned away.
Now I've got friends who will give me their shoulder,
When I should happen to fall.
With time and his bride growin' older,
Got friends who will give me fuck all.


A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la my baby.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la.


The corner of Bleeker 'n' nowhere
In the land of not quite day.
A shiver ran down my backbone,
The face in the mirror turned grey.
So I looked 'round to a hitch up a reindeer,
Searchin' hard, tryin'a brighten the day.
I turned 'round to look for the snowman,
To my surprise he'd melted away, yeah.


A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.   [ Yeah. ]
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la my baby.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la.


The moon and the stars call the order
It's like the tide stands to ebb an' sway.
The sun in my soul's sinkin' lower
While the hope in my hands turn to clay.
I don't ask that my field's full of clover,
I don't moan at opportunity's door
And if ya ask my advice, take it slower,
Then your story'd be your finest reward.


A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la my baby.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la.
  Now do it.

Oh-ohh.             Oh-oh-oh-ohh. Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Oh-oh-oh-ohh. Oh-oh-oh-ohh. Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Oh-oh-oh-ohh. Oh-oh-oh-ohh. Oh-oh-oh-oh~ooh~oh.
Oh-oh-oh-ohh. Oh-oh-oh-ohh. Oh-oh-oh-ohh.


Lost on the path to attainment.
I search in the eyes of the wise.
When I bled from the heart of the matter,
I started bleedin' without a disguise.
Now everything's finally happened,
Now an' then you gotta take time to pause,
'Cause if you're down on the ground,
Well don't be messin' around,
If you land in a boat without oars.


A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la my baby.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la yeah.
A-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la.


Hey babe, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Hey babe, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Hey babe, I lost my way.

Hey babe,
Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Hey babe, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
I really, really did now.

Hey babe,
Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Hey babe, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
I don't know where I'm gonna find it.

Hey babe,
Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Hey babe, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
A-do you wanna know? A-do ya really, really
    wanna help me, yeah?

Let me tell ya my babe,
Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Let me tell ya,                Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
That it feels so good but it must be right

And my babe,
  Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Let me tell ya, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
If it feels so good then it must be right

And my babe,
  Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
Let me tell ya, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
If it feels, if it feels, if it feels,
    if it feels

So good,
    Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
A-so good, Oh-oh-oh-ohh.
So good.
Oh! Yes it.

TEA FOR ONE
Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

How can twenty four hours
Baby sometimes seem to slip into days yeah?
Oh twenty four hours
A-baby sometimes seem to slip into days yeah.
When a minute seems like a lifetime
Oh baby when I feel this way.

Sittin' lookin' at the clock,
Oh time moves so slow.
I've been watchin' for the hands to move
Until I just can't look no more.


How can twenty four hours
Baby sometimes seem to slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime
Baby when I feel this way.

To sing a song for you,
I recall you used to say
"Oh baby a-this one's for we two,"
Which in the end is you anyway.


A-how can twenty four hours
Baby sometimes seem to slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime
Oh baby when I fe__el this way.

There was a time that I stood tall
In the eyes of other men,
But by my own choice I left you woman
And now I can't get you back again.


A-how can twenty four hours
Sometimes seem to slip into days yes, well?
Well, well, well, well a minute seems like a lifetime
Baby when I fe__el this wa-ay.
A minute seems like a lifetime
Oh baby a-when I feel this way, I feel this way.
