squezy_large"Easy peasy" is an expression people say when something is very easy to do. 

My daughter just recited a longer version of it which I had never heard:

"Easy, peasy, lemon, squeezy."

(listen here)

She couldn’t believe that I, Mama Lisa, had never heard the full expression before!

It seems to come from a British commercial from the 1970’s for Lemon Sqezy dish detergent.

Does anyone remember such a commercial?

One Response to “Easy, Peasy, Lemon, Squeezy”

    I didn’t know the origins of the saying (I wasn’t born until the 90s, that’s probably why!). Interesting.

    More recently, in the Horrible History’s sketch about the Spanish conquistadors in South America, one of the conquistadors says, “Easy, peasy, squeeze the lemon.” My sister and I both found this hilarious.
