D'yer Mak'er (intended to be pronounced with a British non-rhotic accent as "jah-may-kah") is a song by Led Zeppelin, from their 1973 album Houses of the Holy. The name of the song is derived from Jamaica and is a play on words based on the joke, "My wife's on vacation in the West Indies." "Jamaica?" "No, it was her idea." The title was chosen because it reflects the reggae flavor of the song. Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant has said that he finds it amusing when American fans pronounce the title as "Dyer Maker."
"D'yer Mak'er is one of the greatest songs, appreciate it."
