Let me take you to the movie
Can I take you to the show?
Let me be yours ever truly
Can I make your garden grow?

From the houses of the holy
We can watch the white doves go
From the door comes Satan's daughter
And it only goes to show
And you know

There's an angel on my shoulder
In my hand, a sword of gold
Let me wander in your garden
And the seeds of love I'll sow
You know

So the world is spinnin' faster
Are you dizzy when you stall?
Let the music be your master
Will ya heed the master's call?
Oh-whoa, save me, man

Said, there ain't no use in crying
'Cause it will only, only drive you mad
Does it hurt to hear them lying?
Was this the only world you had? Oh-whoa

So let me take ya, take ya to the movies
Can I take ya, baby, to the show?
Why don'tcha let me be yours ever truly?
Can I make your garden grow?
And you know, that's right

I put that as a high school yearbook quote back in 1978.  Thought it was perfect.

LZ after "III" has not aged well for me.  It sounds plodding and ... well, old.

agreed.... but it's  after "IV"  for me .... with the odd exception like 'Kashmir'.

 
In rebuttal: Custard Pie, In the Light, In the Evening, and Nobody's Fault But Mine.

Great song!

Does anyone know what the following lyrics mean?

"From the houses of the holy, we can watch the white doves go
From the door comes Satan's daughter, and it only goes to show."

Sure, I can help you with that. They mean..."GO TO JAYZUSS U HEATHENS U!!1!"  D:

Which you can hear if you play the record backward right at those lyrics, like all of us old Zeppelin freaks have done.

Works on other albums too...like Sabbath's first and Beatles White Album.

...or maybe something about religious hypocrisy. {#Think}

Name of the Band, the album and the song, tho all on the same disk. Don't think anyone else has done that.

Oh, and GREAT Zep tune. 

 
"Black Sabbath" (song title, album title, band name) is the only other one I can think of.

LZ after "III" has not aged well for me.  It sounds plodding and ... well, old.   This is not helped by my hearing a LZ tribute band on the weekend - playing in a park bandshell.  (They're called Zed Leppelin.)   Man.   I thought I'd never again hear "Stairway to Heaven" played live.  I was wrong.

Actually, the band called him "Bonzo."  But - not a big deal....

Led Zeppelin a veces me aburre muchisimo.

Huh, not for me. I love this and In Through the Out Door though I realize I am in the minority.

Houses of the Holy
Almost Blue - Elvis Costello

There must be more - help
 
Brain Salad Surgery showed up as a song on some later ELP album.

Are you dizzy when you stop? (said with a Black Country British accent).
