You are correct. It is a Led Zeppelin song called D'yer Maker from Houses of the Holy.

Bob

That almost sounded musical. Thanks Guitar Noise!

That's Dyer Maker, and if I remember correctly is on the Houses of the Holy album.

There is a story behind this title. I believe it was supposed to be titled Jamaica, but was mispronounced. I could be wrong on the details, but it was something like that.

The singer is Robert Plant.

Dyer Maker

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
Baby please don't go.

Ay ay ay ay ay ay
All those tears I cry ay ay ay ay ay
All those tears I cry ay ay ay ay ay
Baby please don't go.

CHORUS

When I read the letter you wrote
it made me mad mad mad
When I read the news that it brought me
It made me sad sad sad.
But I still love you so
I can't let you go
I love you- ooh baby I love you.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Every breath I take oh oh oh oh oh
Every move I make oh oh oh oh oh
Baby please don't go.

Ay ay ay ay ay ay
You hurt me to my soul ay ay ay ay ay
You hurt me to my soul ay ay ay ay ay
Darling please don't go.

CHORUS

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh
(Baby please don't go)

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

In the US, most people pronounce this song "Die-er Maker". What Robert Plant named the song rhymes with "Jamaica"

What he was going for was a short way of sayind "Did You Make Her?"

When you talk fast enough "did you" becomes "did ya" and if you say it all as one it will become "Didja" and when you short it it becomes DJYA... or.. DJYA Make Her?

Now drop the R at the end and Brit it up a bit and its very close to Jamaica but with a little extra sound in it so it would probably look like trying to say Jyamaica.

And like one or two of the Led Zep songs, its about sex.. so if you made her.. well.. you can probably figure out that means.

And of course there's one other Zep song that might be about drugs -- but all the rest are simple testaments to clean family living and the joys of monogamy. There is nothing like a freshly cleaned house that smells of lemons ...

And there's alway's that old corny gag that's a favourite of stand up comedians.....

"Took the wife to the Carribean for a holiday...."

"Jamaica?"

"No, she wanted to go......."

OK groans all around, sorry, couldn't resist.....
