Les Claypool – Purple Onion lyrics

A purple onion...
Purple Onion...
Purple onion everybody laugh now
Purple onion everybody cry
Purple onion lookin' down at B.O.B.
When he crashed his motorcycle and he died
Old Bob Zimmerman knew the purple onion
Purple onion gave ol' Bob five
Purple onion yankin' like a freight train
Shoot white tears up into the sky
Purple onion
A purple onion...
