I was burned in the heat of the moment,
Though it couldn't have been the heat of the day
When I learned how my time had been wasted,
(And a) tear fell as I turned away

Now I've got friends who will give me their shoulder,
Event I should happen to fall
Time and his bride growing older
I've got friends who will give me fuck all

(On the) corner of Bleeker and nowhere
In the land of not quite day
A shiver runs down my backbone
Face in the mirror turns grey

So (I) looked round to hitch up the reindeer
Searching hard trying to brighten the day
I turned around to look for the snowman
To my surprise he'd melted away.

As the moon and the stars call the order
Inside my tides dance the ebb and sway
The sun in my soul's sinking lower
While the hope in my hands turns to clay
I don't ask that my field's full of clover
I don't moan at opportunity's door
And if you ask my advice, take it slower
Then your story'd be your finest reward.

Lost on the path to attainment
Search in the eyes of the wise
When I bled from the heart of the matter
I started bleeding without a disguise

Now everything's fine under heaven
Now and then you've got to take time to pause
When you're down on the ground, don't be messin' around
Or you'll land in a boat without oars
Hey babe, Hey babe, Hey babe,
I lost my way.

Hey babe, Hey babe,
I don't know where I'm gonna find it.

Hey babe, Hey babe,
Do you wanna know,
Do you really, really, wanna help me, yeah?

Let me tell you now, babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right

Now my babe,
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right...

Always one of fave LZ LPs!    Indeed.
I'll take some nice funky Zep this morning, yes indeed!
GREAT ALBUM
there's zeppelin, then there's this and I was around for their first american tour which was fantastic this is not close to that caliber

My second favorite song on this album. John could get funky too when he wanted. {#Dancingbanana_2}

Not really the best of Zep but even their lesser stuff is better than most of what's around these days.
I'd agree...this isn't my fave by them, but it's still pretty good.
Can't even begin to say what a great seg!

Wish it would play thru to the next song on the album, Tea for One.
Yeah...was just thinking the same thing... and it wouldn't hurt to hear Nuhnuhnuhnununuh-nobody's Fault But Mine, too!

Played right after a Led Zep cover (Jerry Lee Lewis). You know, I liked the cover better!
haven't heard this one in a long, long time. damn good tune; much funk from zep.

My first thought was of David Lee Roth doing a Led Zeppelin impression. It still sticks. Sound is good, though, even if it's not a typical Led Zep affair.
It's jammin, full of trademark bonzo, jp, percy and jpj...not sure what isn't typical about this!
oh yeah

And, really, who would pull off this audacious of an album cover concept these days? Man, I miss this creative period.

Obscure and totally entertaining! :drummer:
Tea For One off of this same album is some scary, scary stuff. Page's guitar never sounded better. Love that this album is represented and love this song too.

I like the contrast of a great cover of a hit Zep\' song with such an off-kilter one. The breaks in this one are quite jarring. You definitely wouldn\'t hear such an inspired line-up anywhere else.

who the hell gave this a two??
Why is 1 more appropriate? I can always change it...
Interesting, but definitely not the band's best stuff. It gives you another perspective on Led Zep. Bill apparently agrees...

sounds a lot like stuff from coda.
Never noticed that before but you're totally right...
