"Night Flight" as written by and Jimmy Page John Paul Jones....
I received a message from my brother across the water
He sat laughin' as he wrote the end's in sight
So I said goodbye to all my friends
And packed my hopes inside a matchbox
'Cause I know it's time to fly

Come on, meet me in the morning,
Meet me in the middle of the night
The morning light is comin',
Don't it make you want to go and feel alright

I just jumped a train that never stops,
So now somehow I'll know I never finished payin' for my ride
Just n' someone pushed a gun into my hand
Tell me I'm the type of man to fight the fight that I'll require

Come on, meet me in the morning,
Meet me in the middle of the night
The morning light is comin',
Don't it make you want to go and feel alright

Oh, mama, well I think it's time I'm leavin'
Nothin' here to make me stay
Whoa, mama, well it must be time I'm goin'
They're knockin' down them doors
They're tryin' to take me away

Please Mr. Brakeman, won't you ring your bell.
And ring loud and clear
Please Mr. Fireman, won't you ring your bell
Tell the people they got to fly away from here

I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby
Southern lady, had a very, very special smile
We are in the middle of a change in destination
When the train stops, all together we will smile
Oh, meet me in the morning.
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night
Everybody know the mornin' time is comin'
Don't it make you want to feel alright.
Ah, ah, yeah
Make me feel alright.
Fly now, baby
Get to fly, yeah.
Fly now, baby

    General CommentOk you're all wrong since there is no such thing as a bad Zeppelin song.

    General CommentI seriously hate this song. Out of all the Zeppelin songs on the first six albums, this is the worst. It is 100% filler.

    General CommentI don't understand why everyone hates this song. The drums alone make this a kick ass song. I will admit without Bonzo's touch, this song probably would be pretty lame.

    General CommentJFrancis- Hot Dog happens to be one of my favorite songs.

    Second, this is also a good song. -.- The worst Zeppelin song in the history of Zeppelin,maybe the only bad song, would HAVE to be Hats Off....
