    Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy meaning?

    My son started reciting this "easy peasy lemon squeezy, don't forget your japanessee" what exactly does this mean? I've asked the teacher, and she wasn't sure what it was, but mentioned that the kids really like it (presumably a lot of kids already know this & teach each other??) I've tried to google for it, and the top answer came back as from Austin Power movie. . . which is not comforting!! Does anyone have the complete words & meanings for this? Any help appreciated.

    “Easy peasy” is an common English (from England) expression meaning very easy. “Lemon squeezy” is a brand of washing up liquid. So often the two go together because it sounds good – easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

    If you watch children’s programmes from England you will occasionally hear the kids using the phase. I remember that Norman Price used it when teasing one of the twins in Fireman Sam.

    Sounds like just about anything an Aussie would say. It doesn't have to make sense (to a non-Aussie)it just has to rhyme.
    But Sarah's explanation would certainly fit with your Austin Powers reference.
