"Dancing Days" as written by and Robert Plant Jimmy Page....
Dancing days are here again
As the summer evenings grow
I got my flower, I got my power
I got a woman who knows

I said it's alright, You know it's alright
I guess it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?
Crazy ways are evident
In the way that you're wearing your clothes
Sippin' booze is precedent
As the evening starts to glow

You know it's alright, I said it's alright
You know it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?

You told your mamma I'd get you home
But you didn't say I had no car
I saw a lion he was standing alone
With a tadpole in a jar

You know it's alright, I said it's alright
I guess it's all in my heart, my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?

So dancing days are here again
As the summer evenings grow
You are my flower, you are my power
You are my woman who knows

I said it's alright, You know it's alright
You know it's all in my heart
You'll be my only, my one and only
Is that the way it should start?

    General CommentReject the rest of the world, don't have problems. Dance, rebellion through hedonism. Perhaps a little more innocent, considering when it was written. But that one girl who takes you out of the crap and gives you to yourself instead. she is worth it all, and those goodtimes, the dancing days are priceless

    General CommentGetting her "home" without a car - sounds like going all the way to me! Robert Plant is the most Leo person on earth, standing alone, and tadpoles sure like sperm to me! Mamas - lock up your daughters - Robert Anthony is on the prowl. Love this song!

    General Commentis it just me or does it sound like zep was thinking of Yeats when he wrote this? Y has a poem called Those Dancing Days Are Gone, and in the same collection he wrote a line that goes 'love is like the lion's tooth'...

    General CommentWhat an incredible song. Immediately get visuals of a warm summer night out with friends. It gives me that "invincible teenager" feeling. Man I wish I grew up in the 70's, I'm 15 and I HATE the shit on the radio today it's all industry bullshit! Where did all the talent go?

    General CommentI think this song was meant to capture the lazy relaxation of a warm summer night. It's a song that embodies catching fireflies in the evening light and sittin on the porch with a guitar to play. Life is good at the end of a hot summer day.

    General Comment"I saw a lion he was standing alone with a tadpole in a jar. "

    what the hell does that line mean...or is that just what comes out when you take drugs?

    General CommentThe only reasonable explanation I've heard for that line is that the lion is a blonde kid with a tadpole in jar, haven't we all done that at some point during our childhood summers?
