Video Scene : Songs About Food and Drink; Led Zeppelin Video Marathon- The Lemon Song (1)

This series of video scene is dedicated to our wonderful editor Mandy Hall, who created this website, and has done a ludicrous amount of work uploading new content every day. She is also a fully fledged Zep superfan and gave me the inspiration for this video scene series – “Not expecting you to do a Zep marathon, I just thought it was weird how many food/drink songs they did when I started looking, considering they only released 8 studio albums :-)” Mandy Hall.

Thank you Mandy. We couldn’t have achieved this website without you !

The Lemon Song is bass laden ditty, heavy on soul and innuendo. When Robert Plant suggestively screams “Squeeze me baby till the juice runs down my leg,” you know he means it. It’s a song that can be accompanied by a gin and tonic with a squeeze of lemon to get into the spirit of the song (puns aside) or a lemon cheesecake, or lemon flavoured food of your choice. Get into it !

“The Lemon Song” Lyrics

I should have quit you, long time ago. [X2]
I wouldn’t be here, my children, down on this killin’ floor.

I should have listened, baby, to my second mind [X2]
Everytime I go away and leave you, darling, you send me the blues way down the line.

Said, people worry I can’t keep you satisfied.
Let me tell you baby, you ain’t nothin but a two-bit, no-good jive.

Went to sleep last night, worked as hard as I can,
Bring home my money, you take my money, give it to another man.
I should have quit you, baby, such a long time ago.
I wouldn’t be here with all my troubles, down on this killing floor.

Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg. [X2]
The way you squeeze my lemon, I’m gonna fall right out of bed.

I’m gonna leave my children down on this killing floor.
