Trampled Underfoot Lyrics

Greased and slicked down fine, groovy leather trim
I like the way you hold the road, mama, it ain't no sin

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Trouble-free transmission, puncture will explode
Mama, let me pump your gas, mama, let me do it...

    Car metaphors used to describe one foxy babe & the intense sexual chemistry shared & how her body responds while having mind blowing sex.

    An incredible song.

    One of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs besides Kashmir that depends on the mood out of the Physical Graffiti D.A., that Robert Johnson's ''terraplane blues'' song inspired PLANT to use car parts for metaphors for sex is probably true, but also as a old time fan since the old days when this song came out for some reason I thought the song was also about a TRANSYLVANIAN machine [CAR] that he fell in love with on his travels up the CARPATHIAN mountains.

    Clearly it is about the futility of calculating the digits of Pi out to however many decimal places...

    Robert Plant revealed in an interview that the song was actually written about how frustrated Jimmy Page was with Jeff Beck because of his infatuation with cars. Jimmy was frustrated that Jeff Beck would put the guitar down for years to build cars. Once when Jimmy was asked who his favorite guitar player was, he answered "Jeff Beck, when he is on".

    Dual meaning. Obviously a reference to a car but equally applied to a woman.
