"Sick Again" as written by and Robert Plant Jimmy Page....
From the window of your rented limousine
I saw your pretty blue eyes
One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen
Painted lady in the city of lies

Oh, do you know my name?
Do I look the same?
You know I'm the one you want, babe
I must be the one you need, yeah

Clutching pages from your teenage dream
In the lobby of the Hotel Paradise
Through the circus of the LA queens
How fast your learn the downhill side

Oh, how you like my face?
Still don't know your name
You know I'm the one you want, babe
Oh yes, I must be the one you need, yeah

Oh, you got me feeling
Just a bit, just a bit

Lips like cherries and the brow of a queen
Come on, flash it in my eyes
Said you dug me since you were thirteen
Then you giggle as you heave and sigh

Oh, do you know my name?
Do I look the same?
Baby I gotta tell you, I'm the one you want
And everybody know I'm the one you need, yeah

Oh, give it to me, come on now

Hours, hours, and the moments in between
Oh, baby, I couldn't count the times
The fun of comin', oh the pain in leavin'
Baby, dry those silver eyes

Oh, do you know my name?
Do I look the same?
You know I'm the one you want
Oh yes, I'm the one you need

Oh, that's right, oh, yes that's right
Oh, that's right, that's right, that's right
Oh yeah, that's right

    General CommentSounds like groupies or even street whores-- "painted ladies". Personally, I think Robert Plant is bi so "L.A. queens" might be about gay guys or trannies. Other than that, the only thing certain is they're young and he's mocking them, and all the while he's banging them:

    "Oh, baby, I couldn't count the times
    the fun of comin', oh the pain in leavin', Baby, dry those silver eyes "

    "Do you know my name, do I look the same"-- it sounds like that's the groupie talking and he's mocking their desperation.

    Zep is kind of gross, huh? I love their music but that all sounds so sleazy and pitiful...

    General Commentthis is sort of the same subject matter as "what is and what should never be". seems like he had a thing for the groupie teen chicks that must have always been around him, but based on the lyrics of these songs, must have kept that thing as a fantasy and not let it actually happen.

    General CommentFrom what I've read about Jimmy Page, that last sentence is probably not accurate...

    General CommentEver heard of Lori Maddox, mnkyonastick? But Plant wrote this song. I reallylike this song, it's a great way to end the album.

    General CommentThis song is about how when Robert thinks back about all of the YOUNG groupies that he met, how much he felt sorry for them."How fast you learn the downhill slide" I read it somewhere

    General CommentPlunketts is right if he means that the members of Zeppelin were sex animals. Apparently they would exploit their groupies to the absolute max. Groupies have told of how Jimmy Page would often make them stick octupi in their vaginas.

    Anyway, to the song, this is my favourite Zeppelin song at the moment. Its one of the few Zeppelin songs with real lyrical depth, though it might not be apparent when you read the lyrics off the page like this.

    To me, the song is either about the plight of groupies in general or it is about one in particular.
