Led Zeppelin: “The Lemon Song”

led-zeppelin-iiI 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]
Every time I go away and leave you, darling, you send me the blues way down the line.

Said, baby 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.

(Led Zeppelin,The Lemon Song in Led Zeppelin II, 1969, Atlantic Records)

Misogynistic, cynical, transgressive

The “lead zeppelin” band led by Jimmy Page, turned the page onto improvisation with this shocking blues song. And now, a little known fact: do you know the song “Stairway To Heaven“? When played backwards, the music changes and the lyrics are … satanic!
