Hey hey mama said the way you move,
Gon' make you sweat, gon' make you groove.
Ah-ah child way you shake that thing,
Gon' make you burn, gon' make you sting.
Hey hey baby when you walk that way,
Watch your heartache drip, can't keep away.

Oh yeah, oh yeah, ah, ah, ahh.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, ah, ah, ahh.

I gotta roll, can't stand still,
Got a flaming heart, can't get my fill.
Eyes that shine burning red,
Dreams of you all through my head.

Ah-ah
Ah-ahh ah-ah
Ah-ah ah-ah
Ah-ah ahhh

Hey baby, whoa baby, pretty baby
Darling give it to me now. (?)
Hey baby, oh baby, pretty baby
Move the way you're doing now. (?)

Didn't take too long 'fore I found out,
What people mean by down and out.
Spent my money, took my car
Started telling her friends she gon' be a star.
I don't know, but I been told
A big-legged woman ain't got no soul.

Oh yeah, oh yeah, ah, ah, ahh.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, ah, ah, ahh.

All I ask for, all I pray
Steady rolling woman gonna come my way.
Need a woman gonna hold my hand
Won't tell me no lies
Make me a happy man.

Ah-ah
Ah-ahh ah-ah
Ah-ah ah-ah
Ah-ah ahhhhh

    i agree 100% with blob4evr, the led is like one of the best alltime bands (next to the beatles and pink floyd). This song is so frken good an i think that it shud be on the led zeppelin greatest hits.

    It definitely has a meaning, it's the blues. Led Zeppelin is probably one of the best blues bands of all time. Not like the muddy waters trash of Chicago. More like the funk/soul of Louisiana as well as the lower delta. True they did use a great deal of other blues musicians songs and workings, but then again what great blues musician hasn't. Cool band.

    Led Zeppelin (or "The Led") is such a great band, so many smash hits you can't count them, just like this one...I love it so much!!! :)
