Stairway To Heaven

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Bookbinder's Kid (1988).

There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying the stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Ooh, ooh, 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 song-bird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it makes me wonder

Your head is humming
And it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow
And did you know
Your stairway lies
On the whispering wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadow's taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light
And wants to show

And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not a roll
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
