Led Zeppelin - We're Gonna Groove - Live at The Royal Albert Hall 1970




"We're Gonna Groove" (or "Groovin'" as it was originally titled) is a song written by soul artist Ben E. King and later co-credited to James Bethea. In 1964, it was released as the single B-side of King's rendition of "What Now My Love".


Led Zeppelin performed "We're Gonna Groove" as the opening number during their 1970 UK and European tours. The song was proposed for Led Zeppelin II, but did not appear until the 1982 release of Coda. Jimmy Page finished the recording at his Sol Studios, after the group disbanded following the death of drummer John Bonham.


The credits for the 1982 album Coda note that the song was recorded at Morgan Studios, London, on 25 June 1969. However, this was later changed to the Royal Albert Hall on 9 January 1970, with several edits and the guitar parts overdubbed. The original concert performance, including the original guitar part appears on the 2003 Led Zeppelin DVD. The second song of the concert – "I Can't Quit You Baby" – was similarly adapted for the Coda album.




Lyrics



Hear my baby comin' down the track

Betcha my baby's comin' back

Someday she'll get back to me

We're gonna raise a family


We're gonna groove, yeah groove

Yeah we're gonna groove


Whoa, my baby, we're gonna love, love, love

Until the brink of day


Sweet as sweet as sweet can be

You don't know whatcha do to me

Let me say you're my one desire

You just set my soul on fire


Oh we're gonna groove, yeah groove

Yeah we're gonna groove baby

My baby, baby we're gonna love, love, love

Until the brink of day


Sweet as sweet as sweet can be

Lemme tell ya you don't know whatcha do to me

You just set my soul on fire

Woman you know you're my one desire


We gonna groove oh we gonna groove

We gonna groove yeah

And we're gonna love, love, love

Until the brink of day


We gonna groove yeah, groove

And we're gonna groove
