"Darlene" as written by and Robert Plant Jimmy Page....
Oh oh yeah
Darlene, oh Darlene, oh Darlene,
Oh oh yeah Darlene, oh oh Darlene, oh oh Darlene
Oh come on baby give me some

When I see you at that dance with your tight dress on
Whatcha got it sure is fine
I want to get me some

Darlene, woo baby baby Darlene, oh be my baby Darlene,
Oh, come on baby be my baby
Come on, come on come oh
Darlene, oh, Darlene, hey hey Darlene, oh oh
Come back and be my sweet little girl
When I see you on the street, it makes my heart go flitter
I see you walkin' with all those guys
It makes me feel so sick

And I don't care what people say
And I don't care what they do
Sweet child I gotta make you mine
You're the only thing that I want: You!
Baby baby when you walk down the block,
See the people behind (?)
Woh child oh ya drive me wild
I gotta do it really gonna try

Oh baby, I got my car
I'll take you as far
I'm gonna take you every place
I'm gonna boogie-woogie-woogie-woogie that's fine

I'm gonna prove it, Darlene
I'm gonna make ya my girl
I'm gonna boogie, Darlene
I'm gonna send ya in another world

'Cause I love Darlene, I gotta love 'er,
Yes I do
I've been savin' all my money I've been workin' all day long
I gotta give it all back to you

Oh but I love Darlene?
'Cause I love, yes I do ?
I've been workin' to, I've been workin' everyday
I've been tryin' to get a hold of you
And I love you Darlene
Yes I love you I do
I've been saving all for you
Oh I love ya

    General CommentErr - my copy of Darlene contains the phrase "Got a pink carnation and a pickup track" I seem to remember that this phrase was also in Don Mclean's American Pie(?) Any idea what this phrase means (other than a guy with a van and a flower :)

    General CommentCrap, it got cut-off. Oh well, just go to that site if you want to know. It said the pink carnation was a reference to the 50s song "White Sport Coat", and that the whole line was referring to the style and music of the 50s.

    General CommentZeppelin is a great band, but this has got to be one of their worst songs. It doesn't have nearly the feeling as most of their songs do, and the lyrics are pretty weak as well. I wonder how long it took to write this song.

    General CommentAgreed, DAS JETS. I also consider this to be one of Zeppelin's worst songs, though I still enjoy it. The lyrics fall so incredibly short for Zeppelin, and for the longest time I couldn't even tell Plant was saying "Darlene."

    But then, it is basically a reject song, after all.

    General CommentOk, Excalibur2 I hate you. Darlene is one of my very favorite song by Zeppelin. You clearly do not know what you are talking about.

    General CommentThis is a 50s rockabilly type tune done by Zeppelin.

    "Pink carnation and a pickup truck" are 50s representations that Don McLean also referenced in American Pie.
