    When The Levee Breaks

    When The Levee Breaks
    By Led Zeppelin

    If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break,
    If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break,
    When the levee breaks I’ll have no place to stay.
    Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
    Lord, mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
    Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home,
    Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well.
    Don’t it make you feel bad
    When you’re tryin’ to find your way home,
    You don’t know which way to go?
    If you’re goin’ down south
    They go no work to do,
    If you don’t know about chicago.
    Cryin’ won’t help you, prayin’ won’t do you no good,
    Now, cryin’ won’t help you, prayin’ won’t do you no good,
    When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move.
    All last night sat on the levee and moaned,
    All last night sat on the levee and moaned,
    Thinkin’ ’bout me baby and my happy home.
    Going, go’n’ to chicago,
    Go’n’ to chicago,
    Sorry but I can’t take you.
    Going down, going down now, going down.
    No One Knows Everything. Only Together May We Find The Truth JG

    Now for a real band:

    New Orleans Is Sinking

    Tragically Hip

    Bourbon blues on the street loose and complete
    Under skies all smoky blue-green
    I can Forksake the dixie dead shake
    So we dance the sidewalk clean
    My memory is muddy what's this river I'm in
    New Orleans is sinking and I don't want to swim

    Colonel Tom What's wrong? What's Going On
    You can't tie yourself up for a deal
    He said" Hey North you're south shut you big mouth
    You gotta do what you feel is real."
    Ain't got no picture postcards ain't go no souvenirs
    My baby she don't know me when I'm thinking about thoes years

    Pale as a light bulb hanging on a wire
    Sucking up to someone just stoke the fire
    Picking out the highlights of the scenery
    Saw a little cloud looked a little like me

    I had My hand in the river
    My feet back up on the banks
    Looked up to the lord above and said hey man thanks
    Some time I fell so good I gotta scream
    She says Gordie baby I know exactly what you mean
    She said, she said I swear to god she said

    My memory is muddy what's this river I'm in
    New Orleans is sinking and I don't want to swim

    Yeah, those Led Zeppelin lyrics can be pretty simple. Not a whole lot of thought going on in their drugged up haze.
