  • Oh, she's my baby
    Let me tell you why
    Hey, she drives me crazy
    She's the apple of my eye
    'Cause she is my girl
    And she can never do wrong
    If I dream too much at night
    Somebody please bring me down

    Hey, I love that little lady
    I got to be her fool
    Ain't no other like my baby
    I can break the golden rule
    'Cause I get down on my knees
    Oh, I pray that love won't die
    And if I always try to please
    I don't know the reason why, yeah

    If she would come back
    Only stay with me, oh yeah

    Every little bit, every little bit, every little bit of my love, a pretty girl
    Every little bit, every little bit, every little bit, every little bit of my love, oh

    I don't have to go by plane
    I ain't gotta go by car
    I don't care just where my darling is
    People I just don't care how far
    I'm gonna crawl, I'm gonna crawl
    I don't care if I got to go back home
    I don't care what I got to stand to her back
    I'm gonna crawl, I'm gonna crawl
    Ah, I'm gonna move the car, baby
    Ah, she give me good lovin', she give me good lovin'
    She give me good lovin', she give me good lovin', my baby give me good lovin'
    Yes, I love her, I guess I love her, yes, I love her
    I'm gonna crawl Writer/s: JIMMY PAGE, JOHN PAUL JONES, ROBERT PLANT

  • Sara from San FranciscoIt’s one of the best songs ever by LZ. Jones did a masterful job with synths, Plant’s at his best with his lingering high notes, and the bluesy, soulful, sexy feel of the song all make it a very underrated, one-of-their-best, songs.
  • Edward C. Hernandez from Los Angeles, Ca.Clueless people with really dumb comments drive me nuts. Worse yet haters filled with jealousy and not even a pubic hair of talent spitting opinions, kill me... Ha Ha ha. Led Zep's music taught me exactly what music and musicianship is. From them I grew up and learned to appreciate all good music. I missed them live in '77 here in L. A. by a fluke of bad luck. My generation camped outside Tower Records for album releases and concert tickets. From Physical Graffiti to ITTOD we raced home threw it on and got blown away. We listened to a complete side got up, turned it over, and wore the grooves out while the walls shook. A kick ass sound system was a must. I can't pick a favorite Zep tune, but this is a painful tune for me. For all the negative, one thing will always stand...Led Zeppelin, and those who love their music know not one other band comes close to kicking you in the balls or taking your panties off!
  • Lif from New Mexico UsaJordan - Shokan, Ny: Techno? Led Zeppelin? Techno wasn't even invented as a form of music while Led Zeppelin was still together and performing.
  • David from Woburn, MaKinda fitting that a song like this would be the closing track on their last album (excluding Coda of course.) I've always found this one to be really underrated and it's easily my favorite off the album.
  • Lisa from Blountville , TnITTOD is not my fav of all the Zeppelin albums.It does have sentimental value.It was the first album(any of ya remember albums) I got by Zeppelin.Hey I was 13,what did I know. I thought it was the greatest thing ever till I discovered the rest of Zeppelins work. The has to my Fav track onITTOD it drips bluesy sexuality even at 13 I knew the power behind it.Bonzo made the comment he thought it was Robert's best vocal work on the album.It was good.
  • Lisa from Blountville , TnScott from Charlotte You are right no one plays blues like Pagey,Yea Calpton gets all the talk about that but,Clapton lacks one thing....He's too clinical in his playing.Not knocking Clapton so don't send your F-u responses.Pagey's emoitions in his playing is so obvious.He can play soul stirring make you wanna cry blues,or good Lord I think he was having sex while playing guitar on this one. (reference to Whole Lotta Love).
    Someone once made a folish comment to me one day when they noticed my ZOSO tattoo on my ankle,Yes ever the Zeppelin nut with a special nod (LOVE SICK SIGH) to Jimmy Page ,That they Zeppelin were the inventors of Heavy metal.What a statement of pure ignorrence. Zeppelin is way more diverse than that.Babe I'm gonna leave you-Tangerine -Bron-yr.......... HELLO. The person that made that comment to me was apperently not a Led Zepplin fan and an idiot.
  • Bianca from Boise, IdI used to work as an exotic dancer for many years, and I'll tell you what...when I walked on that stage with that song for my opening set I never felt more powerful or sexy than anything I've ever experienced in my life. A true masterpiece of emotion.
  • Jared from Santa Ana, CaThis song was my favorite song of all time from Led Zepplin! I am a guy, a romantic, and the screaming that several complained about is what makes this song so dang unique! It comes from the heart if you ask me, and it is the SHIZNIT! This song is as one said, "soulful", and the screaming didn't damage his voice nearly as much as the partying (smoking, drugs, drinking). - Santa Ana, CA!
  • Heather from Madrid, SpainThis is one of the hottest songs Zeppelin ever made...so sexy, along with Plants voice which is one of the best parts. The screaming at the end just shows how much he gets into the music, much more soulful than most.
  • Alina from Karlstad, Swedeni really dont see why plants screaming bugs everyone so much? its part of his voice ID and i really think it suits this song, as it is so emotional. personally i cried when i heard it the first time, i cry even more when i think about that it was the last before bonzo's death ...
  • Bill from Topeka, KsNice song the screaming is not needed cause now Robert Plant can barely talk because of all that screaming
  • Peter Griffin from Quahog, RiHow sad, this is Zeppelin's last song. :(
  • Ed from York, Pagood song, but it would have been better if Plant didnt scream like an idiot at the end
  • Bill from Topeka, KsThis is sweet,very underated one of my favs thought
  • Mark from Worcester, MiA real gem. The last studio recording for the band. Radio people always reach for "D'Yer Maker" when they want to "get the Led out." There's this whole wealth of material, but we get "Fool in The Rain" a billion times. I like D'Yer Maker and Rain Fool of course, but for all the excellent reasons listed below, I wish this number would get a spin now and then.
  • Darrell from Williamsburg, KyQuite possibly the greatest tune ever created
  • Carouselambra from ManchesterI love this song, Its like a kind of soul song with a bit of blues and it has like a dark atmosphere at the same time.
    I really like it.
    On fact, i think that In Through The Out Door is one of my fave Zep albums.
  • David Corino from Hawley, PaIts so emotional..I just love it, most under rated Led Zeppelin album and song ever.
  • Jordan from Shokan, NyThis is a great song. you're right, when i heard roberts, "ahhhhhhhhhhh" it caught me by surprise. I just personaly wish that zeppelins last years didnt dabbal so much into techno. I think it was kinda dissapointing considering how great their first 5 albums were, even though some stuff on those had synthesizers. i dunno, i guess its just me.
  • Jeanette from Irvine, Cadefinitely does sound queen like except for the singing.
  • David from Orlando, FlThis song has fast become one of my favorite blues numbers by Zep, trailing only "When the Levee Breaks" and "How Many More Times". Every little bit, Every little bit....
  • Marcus from Tigard, OrI love this song, really good. But it was funny when I first heard Plant go "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" Cause It sounded so much like Steven Tyler in my opinion. Though really cool :).
  • Scott from Charlotte, NcClassic Page blues guitar solo on this one! I don't care what anyone says - nobody.... NOBODY plays a blues guitar solo with more soul and emotion than Pagey!!
  • Aleksei from Green Valley, AzI dunno about the rest of you, but the start of this song reminds me of a song by Queen..Overall its great, just like all of the rest of Led Zep's songs
  • Brian from Corpus Christi, TxJPJ is the best bass player and musican ever
  • Rob from Santa Monica, CaAs Plant says in this one: Ahhhhhhhhhhhh-ha-ha!
  • Mike from Milwaukee, WiThe entire song is genius in itself. All parts are fitting and make the song whole, to say the synthesized orchestra Jones' put in it shouldn't be there is just ridiculous.
  • Vana from Vbay, United StatesI love this song because 'John Paul Jones wrote Most of it'

    :D

    and, you know, blues kicks ass. i love king.

  • Adrian from Wilmington, DeA well-crafted Jimmy Page guitar solo. It's only fitting that Zeppelin's finaly studio track be a blues number. It would have been better had Jones's synthesized orchestra not been in it.
  • Louise from Bayside, NyI love this song because it is pure blues.
