Led Zeppelin - Black Dog (Live at Madison Square Garden 1973) (Official Video)




"Black Dog" became a staple and fan favourite of Led Zeppelin's live concert performances. It was first played live at Belfast's Ulster Hall on 5 March 1971, a concert which also featured the first ever live performance of "Stairway to Heaven"

The title is a reference to a nameless black labrador retriever that wandered around the Headley Grange studios during recording.



Lyrics


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

Oh yeah, oh yeah ah, ah, ah ah Oh yeah, oh yeah ah, ah, ah ah Oh yeah, oh yeah ah, ah, ah ah Oh yeah, oh yeah ah, ah, ah ah

I gotta roll I can't stand still Got a flamin' heart can't get my fill With eyes that shine, burnin' red Dreams of you all through my head

Ah ah ah ah ah ah Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

Hey baby, whoa my baby, my pretty baby Darlin' makes 'em do it now Hey baby, oh my baby, my pretty baby Move the way you're doin' now

Didn't take too long 'fore I found out What people mean by down and out Spent my money, took my car Started tellin' 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, ah ah Oh yeah, oh yeah ah, ah, ah ah Oh yeah, oh yeah ah, ah, ah ah Oh yeah, oh yeah ah, ah, yeah

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

Ah ah ah ah ah ah Ah ah ah ah ah ah, ah

Oh yeah Darlin' makes 'em do it now Yeah-yeah. yeah-yeah. yeah-yeah Darlin' makes 'em do it now Babe! babe! Wooh, keep doin' it babe

hey (Busted) hey (Busted) hey (Busted) hey

hey, yeah (Busted) hey, yeah (Busted) hey, yeah Oh, yeah

Oh-ah (Well done)

Darlin' makes 'em do it now Darlin' makes 'em do it now
