Lyrics of Four Sticks

Oh, baby, it's cryin' time, oh, baby, I've got to fly
Got to try to find a way, got to try to get away
'cause you know, I gotta get away from you, babe

Oh, cariño, es hora de llorar, oh, nena, tengo que volar
Tengo que tratar de encontrar una manera, tienes que intentar escapar
Porque ya se sabe, tengo que alejarme de ti, nena

Oh, baby, the river's red, aw, baby, in my head
There's a funny feeling goin' on
I don't think I can hold out long

Oh, nena, el río rojo, aw, nena, en mi cabeza
Hay una sensación extraña Goin 'en la
Yo no creo que pueda aguantar mucho

And when the owls cry in the night
Oh, baby, baby, when the pines begin to cry
Baby, baby, baby, how do you feel
If the rivers run dry, baby, how would you feel

Y cuando los búhos grito en la noche
Oh, nena, nena, cuando los pinos empiezan a llorar
Bebé, bebé, bebé, ¿cómo te sientes
Si los ríos van al bebé seco, ¿cómo te sentirías

Craze, baby, mm, the rainbow's end
Hoo, baby, it's just a den for those who hide
a-hide their loves to depths of lies
and ruined dreams that we all knew so, babe

bebé Craze,, mm, al final del arco iris
Hoo, nena, es sólo una guarida para los que se esconden
una piel de sus amores a las profundidades de la mentira
y arruinó los sueños que todos sabíamos esto, nena

And when the owls cry in the night
And, baby, when the pines begin to cry
Oh, baby, baby, how do you feel
If the rivers run dry, baby, how will you feel

Y cuando los búhos grito en la noche
Y, cariño, cuando los pinos empiezan a llorar
Oh, nena, nena, ¿cómo te sientes
Si los ríos van al bebé seco, ¿cómo te sientes

Ah-ahh, ah-ah-ahh-ay
Ahh-ahh-ahh, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ahh-ah-ah-ahh, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah
Baby, how do you feel

Ah-ah, ah-ah-ahh-ay
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah, ah, ah, ah
Nena, ¿cómo te sientes

Oh, yeah, brave I endure
Woo, yeah, strong shields and lore
N-they can't hold the wrath of those who walk
in the boots of those who march
baby, through the roads of time so long ago

Oh, sí, valiente sufro
Woo, sí, fuertes escudos y leyendas
N-no puede contener la ira de los que caminan
en las botas de los que marchan
bebé, a través de los caminos del tiempo hace mucho tiempo

Ooh-ooh-ooh, yeah, ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh-ooh-ooh, yeah
Ah-ah-ah-ha-ah-haa, ah-ah-ah-ah-ahh, ah-ha-ah-ay
Ah-he-ah-haa, ay-ay-ayy-e-ay-ah
Ooh-ooh, hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh, hoo-ooh, oooh-ahh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Ooh-ooh-ooh, sí, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, sí
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ha-haa, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ha-ah-ay
Ah-ah-le-haa, ay-ay-ayy-e-ay-ah
Ooh-ooh, Hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-hoo, oooh-ahh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh


'Four Sticks' is a song by the English rock band Led Zeppelin from their fourth album, released in 1971. The title came from the fact that drummer John Bonham played with two sets of two drumsticks, totalling four. His decision to play the song with four sticks was a result of him being very frustrated with not being able to get the track down right during recording sessions at Island Studios. After he grabbed the second pair of sticks and beat the drums as hard as he could, he recorded the perfect take and that was the one they kept. This song was particularly difficult to record, and required more takes than usual. This version featured tabla drums and sitars. The recordings have never been released officially and are only available on Led Zeppelin bootleg recordings. The project is said to have run into problems because the orchestra didn't keep time in the Western style and some of them drank rather a lot. The band is only known to have played this song live once, at Copenhagen on their 1971 European tour, as has been preserved on some bootleg recordings. Also in 1994, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page had rejoined in musical collaboration as Page and Plant. On 25 August and 26, live performances were taped in London, Wales, and Morocco with Egyptian and Moroccan orchestration of several Led Zeppelin tunes - 'Four Sticks' was one of them, and the arrangement features drummer Michael Lee playing with four sticks as well as multiple percussionists such as Hossam Ramzy. This new version of 'Four Sticks' was also included on the album 'No Quarter: Jimmy Page and Robert Plant Unledded', and live performances were so successful commercially and artistically that the ensemble coordinated a 1995/1996 world tour.

Robert Plant played a version of the song during his solo tour in 2005, as is included on the DVD release 'Soundstage: Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation', although drummer Clive Deamer only plays with two sticks.
