"Over, Under, Sideways, Down" as written by James Stanley/samwell-smith Mc Carty and Jeff/relf Beck....
(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Cars and girls are easy come by in this day and age.
Laughing, joking, dreams, weed smoking, till I've spent my wage.
When I was young, people spoke of immorality.
All the things they said were wrong are what I want to be.

(Hey!) Over, under, sideways, down,
(Hey!) I bounce a ball that's square and round.
(Hey!) Over, under, sideways, down,
(Hey!) I bounce a ball that's square and round.
When will it end? (When will it end?)
When will it end? (When will it end?)

(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
I find comments 'bout my looks irrelativity.
Think I'll go and have some fun, 'cause it's all for free.
I'm not searchin' for a reason to enjoy myself.
Seems it's better done than argue with somebody else.

(Hey!) Over, under, sideways, down,
(Hey!) I bounce a ball that's square and round.
(Hey!) Over, under, sideways, down,
(Hey!) I bounce a ball that's square and round.
When will it end? (When will it end?)
When will it end? (When will it end?)

    General Comment60s were so ahh, the yardbirds are incredibly overlooked. you'd think clapton and page would draw more attention, they were a legit band and this is an AMAZING song.. the progression changes are spot on, it's soo pretty. it's weird because i don't really like "for your love" THAT much, there have better work aka this

    General CommentThis was the title track to one of their best albums (which I happen to have an original copy of in near-mint condition!). A very well written piece that literally makes you want to jump around over, under, sideways and down! The cover features all "five" Yardbirds (for some reason the manager insisted on FIVE) the line up which includes BOTH Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. The thing is Page DOES NOT appear on the recording. He had just joined the band after the recording was "in the can", but before the release date... hence he made the cover only. He's wearing a black sport jacket with an embroidered symbol of Neptune on the lapel. If you know anything about Neptune's influence on art, just apply it to the Yardbirds and... Voila! Led Zeppelin!
