Peter Mayer – The Onion lyrics
It was a perfect night for a feast delight
Won't you come in
They all were there, the pickles and pears
From A to Zen
There was every dish from chicken to fish
And every water and wine
Cream of the crop this party won't stop
Till the quittin' time

But who's that stranger knockin' on the door
With a twisted grin
If this is the party for the saints and the sinners I say
Let me in

I am the onion
I'm the spice of life but I can make you cry
I am the onion
Better peel me right â??cause I'm the spice of life
So come on come on come on don't pass me by

Julia jam says "Here I am sweet as cherry pie"
Candy apple Alice takes a sip from her chalice says...
"I like the sweet life"
Here comes Ted Mr. Lettuce Head
With his artichoke heart
Gina jelly bean she's making a scene
She's so state of the art

Just when things are going fine
The band's about to play
In comes the joker the big cigar smoker says "I got something to say"

I am the onion
I'm the spice of life but I can make you cry
I am the onion
You got an appetite you better treat me right
So come on come on come on don't pass me by

Out in the garden
Tom tomato and asparaGus
Discuss how very good this world could be
If all the others could just see how good we are
If only they were just as beautiful as me

Just when things are going fine
The band's about to begin
In comes the joker the big cigar smoker says

I am the onion
I'm the spice of life but I can make you cry
I am the onion
Better treat me right I'm going to make you cry
So come on come on come on don't pass me by

I am the onion
I am the onion
I am the onion
So come on come on come on don't pass me by
