Led Zeppelin Lyrics

This is "The Ocean" by Led Zepplin off the album Houses of the Holy. To
play this song you must first have the whole band stomp out the tempo of
about 76 bpm. Then in a pirate-like English voice say "we've done 4
already, but now we're steady and ya' know they went...1, 2, 3, 4!

         Their is a long guitar solo after this , but it is pretty much an
ad-libbed walking bass-line.
