Dancing days are here again
As the summer evenings grow
I got my flower, I got my power
I got a woman who knows

I said it's alright, you know it's alright
I guess it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?

Crazy ways are evident
In the way that you're wearing your clothes
Sippin booze is precedent
As the evening starts to glow

I said it's alright, you know it's alright
I guess it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?

I told your momma I would get you home
But I didn't tell her that I had no car
I saw a lion he was standing alone
With a tadpole in a jar

I said it's alright, you know it's alright
I guess it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?

Dancing days are here again
As the summer evening grows
You are my flower, you are my power
You are my woman who knows

    General CommentI never said STP wrote this. I just knew they did a cover of it so I thought I would include it.

    General CommentI've heard both versions of this song, considering the fact I have the Zeppelin album with "Dancing Days" ("Houses of the Holy"). Both versions sound very similar, except for the fact that STP has a lot more percussion and is a little heavier on the guitar in their cover of it.

    General CommentOk maybe STP did a cover of this song, but how can you mistake a Led zeppelin song by a STP song?
