Custard Pie
Ooh, yeah, drop down, baby, let's go to sleep, yeah.
Drop down, mama, lay down, just dream of me.
Well, my mama allow me, I fool around all night long.
Well, I may look like I'm crazy, I should know right from wrong.

See me comin', throw your man out the door.
Ain't no stranger, done been this way before.
See me comin', mama, throw your man out the door.
I ain't no stranger, I been this way before.

Put on your night shirt and your morning gown.
You know by night I'm gonna shake 'em down.
Put on your night shirt, mama, and your morning gown
Well, you know by night I'm, surely gonna shake 'em down
Shake it, shake it...

Ooh, your custard pie, yeah, sweet and nice,
When you cut it, mama, save me a slice,
Your custard pie, yeah, I declare, it's sweet and nice
Like your custard pie, when you cut it, mama
Mama, please save me a slice...oh

Chew on a piece of your custard pie...drop down.
Drop down, yeah, drop down, drop down
Chew on a piece of your custard pie.


The Rover
I've been to London, seen seven wonders.  I know to trip is just to fall,
I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it, I always knew what it was for.

There can be no denyin' that the wind will shake 'em down,
And the flat world's flyin', there's a new plague on the land

If we could just join hands, if we could just join hands,
If we could just join...

Traversed the planet when heaven sent me, I saw the kings who ruled them all.
Still by the firelight and purple moonlight, I hear the 'rested rivers call.

And the wind is cryin', from a love that won't grow cold,
My lover, she is lyin' on the dark side of the globe

If we could just join hands, if we could just join hands,
If we could just join hands...
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
         
You got me rockin' when I ought to be a-rollin',
Darlin', tell me, darlin', which way to go.
You keep me rockin', baby, then you keep me stolen,
Won't you tell me, darlin', which way to go... that's right.

Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry, and I would dearly like to know
I've all this wonder of earthly plunder, will it leave us anything to show?

And our time is flyin', see the candle burnin' low.
Is the new world risin', from the shambles of the old?

If we could just join hands, if we could just join hands
If we could just, if we could just, if we could just, if we could just, 
If we could just join hands...

That's all it takes, that's all it takes.  That's all it takes, that's all it takes


In My Time of Dying
In my time of dying, want nobody to mourn.  All I want for you to do is take my body home,
Well, well, well, so I can die easy.  Well, well, well, so I can die easy.

Jesus, got to make you...sure know.

Houses of the Holy
Let me take you to the movies, can I take you to the show?
Let me be yours ever truly, can I make your garden grow?

From the houses of the holy we can watch the white doves go
From the door comes Satan's daughter and it only goes to show
Ah, you know...

There's an angel on my shoulder, in my hand a sword of gold,
Let me wander in your garden, and the seeds of love I'll sow
You know whoa-oh...

So the world is spinning faster, are you dizzy when you're stoned
Let the music be your master.  Will you heed the master's call?
Oh-whoa-oh, Satan an' man...

Said there ain't no use in cryin', 'Cause it will only, only drive you mad.
Does it hurt to hear them lyin'?  Was this the only world you had?

So let me take you, take you to the movie.  Can I take you, baby, to the show?
Why don't you let me be yours ever truly?  Can I make your garden grow?
You know-whoa, that's right...


Trampled Under Foot
Greasy slicked down body, groovy leather trim,
I like the way you hold the road, mama it ain't no sin.

*Talkin' 'bout love.  Talkin' 'bout love.  I'm talkin' 'bout...*

Ooh, trouble free transmission, helps your oil to flow.
Mama let me pump your gas, mama let me do it all.

*Chorus*

Check that heavy metal, underneath your hood,
Baby, I could rev all night, believe I got the perfect tools.

*Chorus*

Model built with comfort, really built with style,
Specialist edition, mama let me feast my eyes.

*Chorus*

Factory air conditioned, heat begins to rise,
Guaranteed to run for hours, Mama you're the perfect size,

*Chorus*

Groovin' on the freeway, gauges on the red,
Gun down on my gasoline, believe I'm gonna crack your head.

*Chorus*

I can't stop talkin' about, I can't stop talkin' about...

Come to me for service, every hundred miles.
Baby, let me check your points, fix your overdrive.

*Chorus*

Ooh, yes, fully automatic, comes in any size.
Makes me wonder what I did before we synchronized.

*Chorus*

Ooh, feather-light suspention, ponies couldn't hold.
I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors,

*Chorus*

Oh, I can't stop talkin' about love.  I can't stop talkin' about love.

Ooh, let me gun down, gun down, gun down, gun down, down, down, yeah...

I can't stop talkin' about, I can't stop talkin' about love, baby.
I can't stop talkin' about love, my baby, I can't stop talkin' about love,
my baby, my baby, my baby, yeah...


Kashmir
Whoa, let the sun beat down upon my face, and stars to fill my dream.
I am a traveler of both time and space to be where I have been,
To sit with elders of a gentle race, this world has seldom seen.
The talk of days for which they sit and wait; All will be revealed.

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace whose sounds caress my ear,
But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear.

Oooh, oh baby, I been flyin'.  Lord, yeah, mama, there ain't no denyin'.
Oh, oooh yes, I've been flying.  Mama, mama, ain't no denyin', no denyin'.

Oh, all I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground.
And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land.
Tryin' to find, tryin' to find where I be...whoa-oh...

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream,
Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert scream.
Like Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again.
Sure as the dust that floats high in June, when movin' through Kashmir.

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years.
With no provision but an open face, 'Long the straits of fear.
Whaoh, whaoh...Whoa-oh, oh...

Well, when I want, when I'm on my way, yeah...
When I see, when I see the way, you stay-yeah...
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, yes...
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, so down...

Ooh, my baby, oooh, my baby, let me take you there.
Oh, oh, come on, come on...Oh, let me take you there.
Let me take you there, Whoo-ooh, yeah-yeah, whoo-ooh, yeah-yeah, let me take you...

In the Light
And if you feel that you can't go on, and your will's sinkin' low.
Just believe and you can't go wrong, in the light you will find the road.
You will find the road...

Hey, ooh, did you ever believe that I could leave you, standing out in the cold?
Hey, yeah, baby, I know how it feels 'cause I have slipped through,
To the very depths of my soul, yeah.
Baby, I just wanna show what I'd give you, It is from ev'ry ben' in the road...
Now listen to me...as I was and really would be for you, too, honey,
As you would for me, Oh, I would share your load.  Let me share your load.
Ooh, let me share, share your load...

And if you feel that you can't go on, in the light you will find the road.
Hey, though the winds of change may blow around you, but that will always be so.
Oh, when love is pain it can devour you, if you are never alone, I would share your load.
I would share your load...Baby, let me, oh, let me...

Bron-Yr-Aur
(Instrumental)


Down By the Seaside
Down by the seaside, see the boats go sailin'.
Can the people hear, oh, what the little fish are sayin'.

Oh, oh, the people turned away...Oh, the people turned away.

Down in the city streets, see all the folk go racin', racin'.
No time left, no-no, to pass the time of day.

Hey, hey, yeah, the people turned away...The people turned away.
So far away, so far away...

See how they run...see how they run...see how they run...see how they run.
Run-run, run-run, run-run...

Do you still do the twist, do you find you remember things that well?
I wanna tell you...some folk twistin' every day, though sometimes it's awful hard to tell.

Out in the country, hear the people singin'.
Singin' 'bout their progress, knowin' where they're goin'.
Yeah, yeah...

Oh, oh, oh, oh, the people turned away...yes, the people turned away.

Sing loud for the sunshine, pray hard for the rain.
And show your love for Lady Nature, and she will come back again.
Yes she will, yes she will...

Oh, oh, oh, the people turned away...the people turned away.
Don't they know that they're goin'...


Ten Years Gone
Then as it was, then again it will be.
Though the course may change sometimes,
Rivers always reach the sea.

Blind stars of fortune, each have several rays.
On the wings maybe, down in birds of prey.
Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to grow.
But as the eagle leaves the nest, we got so far to go.

Changes fill my time, baby, that's alright with me,
In the midst I think of you, and how it used to be.

Did you ever really need somebody, and really need 'em bad?
Did you ever really want somebody, the best love you ever had?
Do you ever remember me, baby?  Did it feel so good?
'Cause it was just the first time, and you knew you would.

Do the eyes not sparkle?  Senses growing keen.
Taste your love along the way, see your feathers preen.
Kind of makes makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to grow.
We are eagles of one nest, the nest is in our soul.

Vixen in my dreams, with great surprise to me,
Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be
Oh darlin', oh darlin'...

I'm never gonna leave you, I never gonna leave.
Holdin' on, ten years gone,
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone...
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone...
Holdin' on, everday
I'm never...


Night Flight
I received a message from my brother 'cross the water,
He sat laughin' as he wrote the end's in sight.
So I said goodbye to all my friends, and packed my hopes inside a matchbox.
'Cause I know it's time to fly.

Oh, yeah, come on, meet me in the morning, meet me in the middle of the night.
Ah-oh, yeah, the morning light is comin'.  Don't it make you wanna go and feel alright?

I just jumped a train that never stops, so know somehow they'll know I never
Finished payin' for my ride.
Just then someone pushed a gun into my hand, tell me I'm the type of man,
To fight the fight that I'll require,

Oh, yeah, ha, come on meet me in the morning,
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night, yeah.
Oh, well, the morning light is comin',
Well don't it make you wanna go on an' feel alright?

Oh, mama, well I think it's time I'm leavin', nothin' here to make me stay.
Whoa, mama, well it must be time I'm goin', they're knockin' down them doors,
They're tryin' to take me away.

Please Mr. Brakeman, won't you ring your bell?  And ring it loud and clear.
Uh, please Mr. Fireman, won't you ring your bell?
Tell the people they got to fly away from here.

Oh, I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby,
Suddenly they have a very, very special smile.
We are in the middle of a change in destination,
When the train stops, all together we will smile.

Oh, come on, come on, now, meet me in the morning,
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night, night?
Oh, oh, yeah, everybody know the mornin' time is comin',
Don't it make you wanna feel alright?
Make me feel alri-ight...Fly now, baby.
Get to fly, yeah...Fly now, baby.


The Wanton Song
Silent woman in the night, you came, tell me I see through my shakin' frame.
Same old thing, yeah, I'm not a-playin', and the wheel rolls on.

Silent moves through the flames, you come, from the deep behind the sun.
Gives me nightmares, my love has gone, left me barely holdin' on, oh...

With blazin' eyes I see my tremblin' hands, when we know the time has come.
Lose many senses, lose command, feel your healin' rivers run.

Is it every time I fall, that I think this is the one?
Ooh, in the darkness can you hear me call?
Another day has just begun...another day, yeah.

Suddenly all of my face is changed.  Some know what it has become.
Feel my fire needs a brand-new flame, and the wheel rolls on.

Rolls on...rolls on...rolls on...


Boogie With Stu
Visiting town, my baby.  We just got to rock on.
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah, darlin', we just got to go home.
I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop,
Ah, come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock.

Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah, honey.  We've been shakin' all night.
Whoa-whoa-oh, darlin', we just got to roll right,
Ah, ooh, my head, rock on...rock on.

Yeah, yeah.  
Hey babe, hey babe.  Hey babe, hey babe.
Hey babe, hey babe.  Hey babe, hey babe.
I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop.
Oh, come on baby, just rock, rock, rock.

Let's go home.
I don't want no tutti-frutti, no lollipop,
Ah, come on, baby, just rock, rock, rock.


Black Country Woman
[Eddie Kramer:   Shall we roll it, Jimmy?  We're rolling on, uh...
 Someone:        One.
 Eddie Kramer:   Oh, one again.
 Robert Plant:   (Laughter)
 Eddie Kramer:   Can't keep this airplane on.
 Robert Plant:   Nah, leave it, yeah.]

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here?
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here?
You didn't have to tell me that you love me so,
You didn't have to love me, mama, let me go.
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here?
You didn't have to make me a total disgrace.
You didn't have to leave me with that beer in my face.
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here?
Ah, that's alright, it's awful doggone clear.

Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean?
Oh, oh, baby, why you treat me mean?
You didn't have to crucify me like you did,
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid.
Hey, hey, mama, why'd you treat me mean?
You didn't have say you'd always be by my side.
You didn't have to tell me you'd be my blushin' bride.
Hey, hey, mama, why you treat me mean?
But that's alright, I know your sister, too.

You didn't have to tell me that you love me so,
You didn't have to leave me, mama, let me go.
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you?
You didn't have to leave me like a total disgrace.
You didn't have to leave me with that beer on my face.
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you?
Oh, but that's alright, I'd be the same way, too.

Now, my baby, now you didn't have to crucify me like you did,
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid.
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here?
You didn't have to tell me you would be my own.
You didn't have to tell me, baby, let me go.
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you?
Ah, that's alright, I know your sister, too

What's the matter with you, mama?


Sick Again
From the windows of a rented limousine, I saw your pretty blue eyes.
One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen, painted lady in the city of lies.

Oh, do you know my name?  Do I look the same?
You know I'm the one you want, baby.
I must be the one you need, yeah.

Clutchin' pages from your teenage dream, in the lobby of the Hotel Paradise.
Through the circus of the L.A. queens, how fast you learn the downhill slide.

Oh, how you play the game?  Still don't know your name?
You know I'm the one you want, baby.
Whoo, yes, I've got to be the one you need, yeah.

Oh, you got to tell me.  Just a minute, just a minute,
Lips like cherries on the brow of a queen.
Come on, flash it, flash in my eyes,
Said you dug me since you were thirteen.
Then you giggle as heave an' sigh.

Oh, do you know my name?  Do I look the same?
Baby, I got to tell you, I'm the one you want.
And everybody knows I'm the one you need, yeah-yeah.

Oh, get it, get it, come on now.
Come on now.  Come on now.

Hours, hours, were the moments in between,
Oh, baby, I couldn't count the times.
I've thought of comin' on a plane an' leavin',
Oh, baby, dry those silver eyes.

Oh, do you know my name?  Do I look the same?
You know I'm the one you want.
Whoo, yes, I'm the one you need, yeah-yeah.

Ooh, that's right.  Ooh, yeah, that's right
Ooh, that's right.  That's right
That's right.  Oooh, yeah, that's right
That's right.
