At night I heard God whisper lullabies While Daddy next door whistled whisky tunes And sometimes when I wanted, they would harmonize There was nothing those two couldn't do
Embrace me you child, you're a child of mine And I'm leaving everything I am to you Go chase the wild and nightime streets sang Daddy And God sang, Pray the devil doesn't get to you
I thought together they must sing the moon away I thought that they must know each other well For the magic that they made, when they played Wasn't lost between their Heaven and their Hell
Then one night Daddy died and went to Heaven And God came down to earth and slipped away I pretended not to notice I'd been abandoned But no-one sang the night into the day And later night time songs came back again But the singers don't compare with those I knew And I never figured out where God and Daddy went But there was nothing those two couldn't do

"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
