short for Stairway to Heaven, the greatest song in the world. you know Tribute by Tenacious D? that is a tribute to Stairway. its by Led Zeppelin, the greatest band in the world. heres a section from the guitar tab for it:
E|---| ...
its not a very big section i know, its just the first note, but isnt it awesome?

and as we wind on down the road
our shadows taller than our soul
there walks a lady we all know
who shines white light and wants to show
how everything still turns to gold
and if you listen very hard
the tune will come to you at last
when all are one and one is all
to be a rock and not to roll

and shes buying a stairway to heaven

A quote from Wayne's World, it is a reference to how often amateur guitar players will play butchered versions of the song in music shops and the agony it causes most people to have to listen to. Can also be used as a statement against crappy, loud musicians in music stores.
I can't take my little brother to the local music store any more. They have a No Stairway policy, now.

The verb that is widely used to describe the actions during the song "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin during BBYO (The B'nai B'rith Youth Organization) for Jewish teen's dances.

Stairwaying often refers to hooking up, making out, groping, kissing, and fondling during the time in which the song is played. Stairwaying is very fun!
Yael: I saw you stairwaying with Adam! It was getting steamy!
Rachael: Stairway to Heaven is now my favorite song because you get to stairway when it comes on! BBYO dances are AWESOME!

After being the target of an insult or diss, the recipient is at a loss for words & has no comeback. On the way out of the building walking down the stairs they think of a great comeback they SHOULD have used.
Insulter: “You think you’re hot shit but you’re nothing but a smartass.”
Recipient: “err… I’m gonna leave now”
**on the way down the stairs**
Recipient thinks “Damn! I should have said that being a smartass is better than being a dumbass....
Grrr another opportunity lost with a stairway comeback"

the song i turn to when im sad or feel like listen to Zeppelin
There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying the stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying the stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying the stairway to heaven.
