"Dazed and Confused" as written by and Jimmy Page....
[Anderson Theatre version]
I'm dazed and confused,
Is it stay, is it go?
I'm being abused,

And I think I should know,
Come on baby,
I'm starting to crack,
If you're out to get me,

You're on the right track.
Hey!
Hey, hey!
I'm dazed and confused,

Hanging on by a thread,
Come on baby,
Do you want me dead?
I can arrange that for a dollar or two.

I can't remember,
Anything about you.
Hey, hey!
Hey, hey!

Hey!
I'm dazed and confused,
Hanging on by a thread,
I'm being abused,

I'd be better off dead,
If you're out to get me,
You're on the right track,
Quittin' teasin',

I'm starting to crack.
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!

Hey, hey, hey!

[Cumular Limited Version]

I'm dazed and confused,
Is it stay, is it go?
Give me a clue,
'Cause I just want to know.

Give me a clue as to where I am at,
Feel like a mouse, and you act like a cat.

Yeah I'm,
Yeah I'm,
Yeah I'm,
Yeah I'm,

I'm dazed and confused,
Hangin' on by a thread,
I've been abused,
I'd be better off dead,

Can't stand the heat,
And I'm starting to crack,
If you're out to get me,
You're on the right track.

Hey, hey!
Hey, hey!
Hey, hey!
I'm dazed and confused,

Is it stay, is it go?
I still love you,
But I still want to know,
Secrets are fun to a certain degree,

This one's no fun 'cause the secret's on me.
Yeah, yeah,
Hey, hey!
Hey!

I'm dazed and confused,
Is it stay, is it go?
I've been abused,
And I sure want to know,

Give me a clue as to where I am at,
Feel like a mouse, and you act like a cat.
Yeah!
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

    General CommentDid you even listen to the song Addo? Or did you just notice it had the same title as a Led Zeppelin song and assumed it's the exact same?

    General CommentIt's the same song pretty much, the Yardbirds live release credits Jake Holmes with it, he wrote "I'm Confused" for his album "The Above Ground Sound of Jake Holmes," the Yardbirds played it during their last year of existence. When they folded Page did it with his new/renamed/rebuilt band Led Zeppelin, and wiped Jake Holmes' name off it. Apparently this happened quite a lot. I really think you should read this: furious.com/perfect/…

    Still a kickass song whichever way you cut it

    General CommentMr. No Name has it correct, lyrics and all. I have the original recording on vinyl and it's called "I'm Confused". Sort of a "Dazed and Confused" prototype... high on creativity, but low on production!
