Название
This song was originally know as «Black Country Woman (Never Ending Doubting Woman Blues),» in reference to a final spoken line from Plant that was left off the album version, `What’s the matter with you mama, never-ending, nagging, doubting woman blues’. The ‘Black Country’, the area around Birmingham where Plant and Bonham were from, was so known because it had formerly been an important iron-working and coal-mining district. Whether the women in the area have assumed distinct characteristics as the title infers is open to debate.


Текст

(Shall we roll it, Jimmy?  We're rolling on what, one?)
(No, one again)
(Got to get this airplane on)
(Naw, leave it, yeah)
 
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to tell me that you love me so
Didn't have to love me, mama, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to make me a total disgrace
Didn't have to leave me with that beer in my face
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
Oh, that's all right, it awful doggone clear

Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean
Oh oh, baby, why you treat me mean
You didn't have to crucify me like you did
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid
Hey, hey, mama, why'd you treat me mean
You didn't have to say you'd always be by my side
Didn't have to tell me you'd be my blushing bride
Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean
But that's all right, I know your sister, too

You didn't have to tell me that you love me so
You didn't have to leave me, mama, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
You didn't have to leave me like a total disgrace
You didn't have to leave me with that beer on my face
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
Oh, but that's all right, I'd be the same way, too, oh yeah

Now, my baby, you didn't have to crucify me like you did
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to tell me you would be my own
You didn't have to tell me, baby, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
Oh, that's all right, I know your sister, too
Oh yeah, yeah, oh yeah
What's the matter with you, mama
