Led Zeppelin - What Is And What Should Never Be - Live BBC Sessions

Led Zeppelin - What Is And What Should Never Be - Live BBC Sessions





It was written by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant and was included as the second track on Led Zeppelin II (1969).


This was one of Plant's first songs recorded by the band, and also marks the first appearance of drummer John Bonham's Chinese gong, which he set up as part of his drum kit in concerts. The gong appears in the middle part among Jimmy Page's guitar riffs. The song was one of the first debut appearances of Jimmy Page's Gibson Les Paul guitar.


"What Is and What Should Never Be" was performed live at Led Zeppelin concerts between 1969 and 1973. A live version taken from a performance at the Royal Albert Hall in 1970 can be seen on the Led Zeppelin DVD. Another was included on disc two of the live triple album How The West Was Won. Two more versions were included in BBC Sessions.







Lyrics


And if I say to you tomorrow Take my hand, child come with me It's to a castle I will take you Where what's to be, they say will be

Catch the wind, see us spin Sail away leave today Way up high in the sky, hey, whoa But the wind won't blow You really shouldn't go It only goes to show That you will be mine By takin' our time, ooh

And if you say to me tomorrow Oh what fun it all would be Then what's to stop us, pretty baby But what is and what should never be

Catch the wind, see us spin Sail away, leave today Way up high in the sky, hey whoa But the wind won't blow You really shouldn't go Only goes to show That you will be mine By takin' our time, ooh

So if you wake up with the sunrise And all your dreams are still as new And happiness is what you need so bad Girl, the answer lies with you, yeah

Catch the wind, see us spin Sail away, leave today Way up high in the sky, hey whoa But the wind won't blow You really shouldn't go Only goes to show That you will be mine By takin' our time, ooh

Hey, oh Oh the wind won't blow and we really shouldn't go And it only goes to show-ow-ow Catch the wind, we're gonna see it spin We're gonna sail, little girl Do do do, bop bop a do-oh My my my my my my my yeah Everybody I know seems to know me well But does anybody know I'm gonna move like hell Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, oh, Lord Baby, baby, baby, oh, right now, yeah No, no, no, no, no, come on, now
