GUEST,Bud Flower songs (1) (130* d) Lyr Add: I'M A LONELY LITTLE PETUNIA IN AN ONION.. 25 May 04


And who could forget:

I'M A LONELY LITTLE PETUNIA (IN AN ONION PATCH)
Words and music by Johnny Kamano, Billy Faber and Maurie Hartmann, ©1946.
As recorded by by Dick "Two Ton" Baker and His Music Makers, 1947.

1. Of all the saddest words
That I have ever heard,
The saddest is the story told me by a bird.
He had spent about and hour
A-chatting with a flower,
And here ís the tale the flower told:

CHORUS: Oh, I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch,
An onion patch, an onion patch.
I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch,
And all I do is cry all day.
Boo-hoo! boo-hoo!
The air’s so strong it takes my breath away. (Quite away!)
I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch.
Oh, won't you come and play with me?

2. Who put me in this bed?
I'll bet his face is red.
I call him down with every teardrop that I shed.
If I only had him here,
I'd take him by the ear
And make him share my misery.

3. My nerves begin to crack
Each time I see a track
Made by a kitty with a stripe upon his back.
If he’d ever stop by me,
I think I’d rather be
A dead petunia, wouldn’t you?

CHORUS, ENDING WITH:
Oh, won't you come and play with me?
I am so gruesome!
Oh, won't you come and play with me?
My best friends tell me.
Oh, won't you come and play with me?
