Sick Again

Album: Physical Graffiti (1975)
  • From the window of your rented limousine
    I saw your pretty blue eyes
    One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen
    Painted lady in the city of lies

    Oh, do you know my name?
    Do I look the same?
    You know I'm the one you want, babe
    I must be the one you need, yeah

    Clutching pages from your teenage dream
    In the lobby of the Hotel Paradise
    Through the circus of the LA queens
    How fast your learn the downhill side

    Oh, how you like my face?
    Still don't know your name
    You know I'm the one you want, babe
    Oh yes, I must be the one you need, yeah

    Oh, you got me feeling
    Just a bit, just a bit

    Lips like cherries and the brow of a queen
    Come on, flash it in my eyes
    Said you dug me since you were thirteen
    Then you giggle as you heave and sigh

    Oh, do you know my name?
    Do I look the same?
    Baby I gotta tell you, I'm the one you want
    And everybody know I'm the one you need, yeah

    Oh, give it to me, come on now

    Hours, hours, and the moments in between
    Oh, baby, I couldn't count the times
    The fun of comin', oh the pain in leavin'
    Baby, dry those silver eyes

    Oh, do you know my name?
    Do I look the same?
    You know I'm the one you want
    Oh yes, I'm the one you need

    Oh, that's right, oh, yes that's right
    Oh, that's right, that's right, that's right
    Oh yeah, that's right Writer/s: JIMMY PAGE, ROBERT PLANT

  • Brad from Lexington, KyGlam? Wth? This is nothing like glam. In fact, this is one of Zeppelin's heaviest songs. And you're right Fred from Seattle, JB does do an amazing drumming job on this track.
  • Fred from Seattle, Wai can't believe not one of you mentioned the fact that this is one of the best drummed tracks of all time - JB's talent is just a listen away, apparently you all need to go back and have another, and forget about all this glam rock nonsense -
  • Stephanie from Pasadena, CaWhen Plant sings "Through the circus of the L.A. queens" he's referring to this group of groupies
    that cruised the sunset strip in the 70's. The leader of that group was this 15 year old girl named Morgana Welch. She dated John Paul Jones and Robert Plant. She wrote a book about her experiences called "Hollywood Diaries".
  • Peter Griffin from Quahog, RiThis song reminds me neither of David Bowie or T. Rex.
  • Bill from Topeka, Ksi like this tune itfits nicely as the ending of physical grafiti
  • Scott from Chicago, IlAgree with Mark, way underrated.
    Nasty guitar work, great lyrics. Sad but true story
    about idol worship. Excellent that you have to actually look up the lyrics. I never skip this one when it comes up on the Ipod.
    No other band has the diverse body of work that LZ has.
    No other band had the integrity to not reunite after the death of one of it's parts.
    No other band even comes close.
  • Paul from Muskegon, MiRobert Plant's voice style is glam, along with the guitar riffs.
  • Rob from Saint John Nb, CanadaAwesome song. good riffs and great premise for a song. i wish i could have been a fly on those walls
  • Chris from Conshohocken, Pai dont see glam rock in it? isnt glam rock about the look, hence glam?
  • Joe from Bethlahem, PaCorrection, they said the closest not closet. Sometimes I have a tough time reading.
  • Joe from Bethlahem, PaNot glam. What do they mean by closet Zeppelin? Each Zep member was straight.
  • Jeanette from Irvine, Caactually...i'm just classifying queen as glam rock because iTunes says so. so don't listen to me.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScYo. I love Houses of The Holy, Ledzep 3 and Ledzep 4 as well. But Physical Grafiti is also one of my favorites. In fact, Ledzep III and IV and Physical Grafiti were the first Ledzep albums I listened to. I became a Ledzep fan after listening to them. Btw, it's Stef not Steph.
  • Jeanette from Irvine, Cawell queen is glam rock and they're awesome.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScBtw, yes Jeremy I did read what it says.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScI guess those lyrics would be more similar to something Bolan would sing.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScJeremy: You seem a bit peeved at our comments. I didn't think about that. Still though, glam rock is more known for the way people looked and what they wore for their performances than what the songs sounded like.
  • Jeremy from Warren , RiIf you read what it says it clearly says the "closet" to glam rock for Zeppelin since they weren't part of the glam movement, it is actually the most glam type of song that Zeppelin does, I mean take the time to picture Bolan or Bowie singing the lyrics to this song, i'll think youll see the glam then!
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScI don't see the glam in it either Nick. I thought glam rock was more known for its look than the way it sounded.
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScThe guitar in this kicks major a**,, and plant's Vocals are awesome too. Btw, I knew this song was about a groupie, and it's on the best Led zep album... Physical grafitti! Rock on!
  • Nick from Baton Rouge, Lai dont see the glam in it
  • Mark from Lubbock, TxAlong with "Tangerine" the two most underrated Zeppelin songs.
  • Blake from Fullerton, Cadidn't zep form the basis of glam rock and hev. metal
  • Wocky from Atlanta, GaThe song is about the L.A. Queens. Robert took pity upon the teenage girls who would flock to the hotel rooms of Zeppelin to offer them favours, and wrote a song about it. At least thats what I read in an interview.
  • Todd from Philadelphia, PaThis is by no means glam rock; Listen to that funky wining guitar riff. It's all about the bends - difficult to master. It kinda sounds like its teasing you. Like - na na na nah-na na-nah nah, nah nah nah. This song is very under-rated.
  • Janine from Memphis, TnI think this song is about me. :)
  • Frankie from St. Louis, Moi know that im probably wrong, but it seems like this song might have to do something with the underage girl in what is and what should never be...? who knows, i thought about that a while back. and bowie sucks.
  • Regina from Beaumont, TxKick ass song! "Do you know my name" would be great catch phrase, especially for a commercial product. I wish I could have been a Led Zeppelin groupie! If only I'd been born about 30 years earlier. :(
  • Adrian from Wilmington, DeWay too hard to be glam rock. One of the best songs on Physical Graffiti.
  • Kelly from Los Angeles, Cano matter what style led zeppelin attempted, they always succeeded. this is better glam rock than t rex.
