I'M Gonna Give You My Love - Poem by gershon hepner

Babies who want coolin’ aren’t
the kind that I am lookin’ for;
I’m lookin’ for the kind who can’t
have too much, lookin’ for some more.

I’m gonna give you my love

Babies who’re still learnin’ are
the ones for whom I’m always yearnin’,
huntin’ for them near and far,
never coolin’, always burnin’.

I’m gonna give you my love

Don’t mind me when I start droolin’
when I see a gal like you,
hopin’ that you will be excusin’
me for foolin’ with you, true.

I’m gonna give you my love

Shake for me, and keep the back
door open for me, while I’m hopin’
your front door leads me to the track
where you leave your treasures open.

I’m gonna give you my love

In his review of Malcolm Gladwell’s “What the Dog Saw” in the NYT on November 15,2009 Steven Pinker writes:

Have you ever wondered why there are so many kinds of mustard but only one kind of ketchup? Or what Cézanne did before painting his first significant works in his 50s? Have you hungered for the story behind the Veg-O-Matic, star of the frenetic late-night TV ads? Or wanted to know where Led Zeppelin got the riff in “Whole Lotta Love”? Neither had I, until I began this collection by the indefatigably curious journalist Malcolm Gladwell.

These words inspired me to read the lyrics of Led Zeppelin’s last song:

WHOLE LOTTA LOVE

You need coolin', baby, I'm not foolin',
I'm gonna send you back to schoolin',
Way down inside honey, you need it,
I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you my love.

*Wanna Whole Lotta Love (X4)

You've been learnin', baby, I bean learnin',
All them good times, baby, baby, I've been yearnin',
Way, way down inside honey, you need it,
I'm gonna give you my love... I'm gonna give you my love.

* Chorus

You've been coolin', baby, I've been droolin',
All the good times I've been misusin',
Way, way down inside, I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you every inch of my love,
Gonna give you my love.

* Chorus

Way down inside... woman... You need... love.

Shake for me, girl. I wanna be your backdoor man.
Keep it coolin', baby.
