HOLLYWOOD – Legendary British rock group Led Zeppelin have appeared in court accused of ripping off the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven.

Devon Banker Eddie Kean has claimed that Robert Plant, the lead vocalist of Led Zeppelin stole his lyrics after Plant heard Kean reciting a folk song that he had written called ‘The Fair Lady makes a Sensible Banking Decision’. The news comes the same day that another law suit was settled in the favor of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s opening a savings account in Devon
When she gets there she knows
If the banks don’t foreclose
The interest rate will favor sound investment
Ooh ooh ooh ooh and she’s opening a saving’s account in Devon
There’s a sign on the wall
Asking no one to wear motorcycle helmets
In a tree by the brook
There’s a songbird who sings
But that has very little to do with financial security
Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, 5% or under
There’s a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for a biscuit
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And two choccy biscuits and a cup of tea in which to dip them
Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it really makes me wonder
And it’s whispered that soon, If we all call the tune
I can claim the loan as tax deductible income
