This is a song of hope

There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
An' when she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for

Oohoohooh oohoohoohoohooh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird that sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

An' I think you can see that
Ohh

And it makes me wonder, sure does
Oh hoh hoh, hohooh ohoohohooh yes sir

There's a feelin' I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking

Ah hah. Ah hah
Ah hah. Ah hah. Ahhhahhohoohohooh
Ohoohohooh
Ohoohohoohohohoh

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
A-then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter Does anybody remember laughter?

Baby, oh yeah
Just give it to me, give it to me, give it to me

Sure does, sure does
But I got some good news, listen...

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May queen
Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
And there's still time to change the road you're on, I hope so

Oohh, baby baby darlin
Thank ya darlin'
Thank ya darlin'
Thank ya darlin'
Thank ya...

A-wait a minute, a-wait a minute

Your head is hummin' and it won't go
In case ya don't know
The piper's callin' you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whisperin' wind

Ohh hah hahhahhh

(Guitar Solo)

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold, yeah
And if-a you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all is one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll, not to roll
Don't make me roll

An' she's buying a stairway to heaven
Ahhahhhhohhahhoh
