Stairway to Heaven lyrics

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a 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
Oh oh oh oh and she’s buying a stairway to heaven
There’s a sign on the wall….
Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it makes me wonder…..
Songwriters: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
