Song Lyric Sunday: Fruity – ‘The Lemon Song’

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday should make reference to a fruit in it’s title. This somewhat fruity piece from Led Zeppelin’s second album fills that bill.

I should have quit you a long time ago
Oh, yeah, long time ago
I wouldn’t be here, my children
Down on this killing floor

I should have listened, baby, to my second mind
Oh, I should have listened, baby, to my second mind
Every time I go away and leave you, darling
You send me the blues way down the line

Baby, yeah
Give it to me, baby
My, my, my
Take it down a bit
Give it to me, baby
Keep me satisfied

Trying worry ’bout me, baby
But I’d never get you with myself
Keep on worrying, baby
Can’t keep you satisfied
Huh, let me tell you, baby
You ain’t nothing but a two-bit no good jive

I went to sleep last night
I worked as hard as I can
I bring home my money
You take my money
Give it to another man

I should have quit you, baby
Oh, such a long time ago, oh
I wouldn’t be here with all my troubles
Down on this killing floor

Squeeze me baby, ’til the juice runs down my leg
Squeeze me baby, ’til the juice runs down my leg
The way you squeeze my lemon, ah
I’m gonna fall right out of bed
Bed, bed, bed, yeah

Written by John Bonham, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Baldwin and Chester Burnett
