what is this song called?

What Is and What Should Never Be from Led Zepp II. I actually asked my English teacher in 1975 in Maputo, Mozambique, what the title meant in Portuguese. I loved the track so much. My claim to fame is meeting and taking a photo with John Paul Jones in Exeter in 1988-9. He was a member of the jury in the regional finals of young bands contest. I remember the winner got to play at the Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show on BBC Radio 1.
