    i heard it on the radio and they said it was "mixing lemonade" or something to that sort. i dont remember and words that would really help but the vocals kinda echoed. the bass kept on walking and rarely if ever played the same riff. the bass was also playing higher notes. does anyone know what song this is?

    "The Lemon Song" was a not-so-thinly veiled plagarism of "Killing Floor" by Albert King. If this is the song you're thinking of, it'll mention being "down on the killing floor" in the chorus. Aside from that, Led Zep used the "squeeze my lemons, till the juice runs down my leg" thing on a couple different things. I'm guessing it started as a vamp on some of their early live blues medlies, but then got worked into the lyrics of "The Lemon Song". I hope this helps.
