With a purple umbrella and a fifty cent hat,
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.
Missus cool rides out in her aged Cadillac.
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.

Come on, babe on the round about, ride on the merry-go-round,
We all know what your name is, so you better lay your money down.

Alimony, alimony payin' your bills,
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.
When your conscience hits, you knock it back with pills.
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.

Come on, babe on the round about, ride on the merry-go-round,
We all know what your name is, so you better lay your money down.

Tellin' tall tales of how it used to be.
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.
With the butler and the maid and the servants three.
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.

Nobody hears a single word you say.
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.
But you keep on talkin' till your dyin' day.
Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.

Come on, babe on the round about, ride on the merry-go-round,
We all know what your name is, so you better lay your money down.

Livin', Lovin', She's just a woman.

dialed up LZ on a food pickup run and when I get home and ask Alexa to play RP, what am I rewarded with but a Zep twofer. Occasionally the universe comes together.
Not even in their top 10 tunes, but hot dang this rocks.
When Robert Plant dies, may that day be a loooonnnggg time coming, his essence needs to be scientifically studied to find the essence of Rock and Roll.
 I always thought it was "...and a fifth in hand."

Any American knows what a "fifth" is.

BTW, I bought this LP when it first came out because I wanted to be cool in school.
I had no idea about the music on it.

Well, after 47 years of hearing this song, this is the first time I've checked the lyrics, and specifically the first line (thanks to the RP lyrics feature): "With a purple umbrella and a fifty cent hat"
As opposed to what I was hearing: "With a purple operator and a 50-cent hair", which of course makes no sense. ; )

I finally got the lyric "50 cent hat". Kept hearing "fips in hand". Leading to my lifetime search for a fips.

Classic, simply Classic stuff. Saw Zep 1973 Chicago, $7.50! Made the movie from that tour. Number one concert in my life of hundreds.
 You've had hundreds of lives?

Nice to keep the transition with living loving maid !

Absolutely! Love that Bill always plays it as it always should have been.
Just can't listen to this anymore still "PTSD'd" from decades of overplay...and it's brilliant.  (always happy for new generations that get to discover this for the first time!)

Led Zepplin two-fer - THANKS BILL!!!!
YEA, Heartbreaker and Living Loving Maid belong played together!

Jam On . . .
She's just a virtual being from the internet
The whole album would get a "10" in my world (ie. my own feeble rock'n roll brain).  Takes me back to a time when blasting this on the quad 8-track deck in my '65 Dodge  van with a bunch of stonies in the back bobbing and shaking to the music was a great way to spend Saturday night in the Great White North!

It would probably go better than "Dead Loving Maid" would.

Most excellent!
{#Dancingbanana_2}
Thank you for playing both of these together!
Arguably (this is the INTERNET after all) the greatest rock song(s) of all time

Next song is this one!  Universe still spinning 'round.
Amazing. This song is as old as I am and we both still rock.

This is the only way these two songs are meant to be played: one right after the other. The bridge between the two is brilliant and always gets me rocking. 
By golly this music's got me shakin my rickety biscuits!!! Woopiddy-dooooo yee-haaaa

What?!  This song isn't even three minutes long.
Really?

A thumping rocker of a song that was standard fare for FM rock stations for decades.  Not their best, but it's great to hear again once in a great while.

 
Among their very best and great to hear anytime!{#Bananajam}{#Dancingbanana_2}

It's always been something of a radio crime not to air these two songs together.

 
Yep--impossible to separate! :-)
This song is the essence of Page.

Just played the vinyl album this morning.  Nice hearing the songs together like they should be.

oh hey, I like this sound! Woo-hoo hope to hear a coupla' more from this neat young group, by gum : )
Used to love this album, but it's a bit heavy-handed these days.
  Please stop. This tune has been going on for 10 minutes.
I've always thought this was one of their best tunes.  That great Telecaster sound.

Hmm, the same thing just happen.
The locked-at-the-hip-and-lip sing-along air guitar-and-drum specials.
