I'VE NEVER WRONGED AN ONION
(Why Should It Make Me Cry)
 
div
 

I've seldom hurt a single thing or person in my life
Except people that don't matter like the landlord and his wife
And now I'm puzzled and my heart is breaking you can see
Perhaps you can give me comfort, this is what has saddened me.

Chorus: I never wronged an onion, I hope I never shall
I've never wronged an onion, I treat it as a pal
Tell me, tell me, tell me why
I've never wronged an onion, why should it make me cry?

Some trusting hearts of cabbages, I've broken, I will own
I've torn a lettuce limb from limb, no mercy have I shown
And I've poked potatoes eye's out, and no single tear I've shed
And though the blood of many beetroots is upon my head,

Chorus: Still, I never wronged an onion, I hope I never shall
I've never wronged an onion, I treat it as a pal
Tell me, tell me, tell me why
I've never wronged an onion, why should it make me cry?
