  • I seem to vaguely remember this song being played on CAPTAIN KANGAROO during the early '70s. (sav-man)

  • Song Lyrics:
    I don't like snails, or toads, or frogs,
    Or strange things living under logs,
    But, mmm, I love onions.
    I don't like dancin' with crazy Ted,
    He's always jumpin' on my head,
    But, mmm, I love onions.

    Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
    Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot.
    Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
    Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot.

    I don't like rain, or snow, or hail,
    Or Moby Dick, the great white whale,
    But, mmm, I love onions.
    I don't like shoes that pinch your toes,
    Or people who squirt you with a garden hose,
    But, mmm, I love onions.

    Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
    Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot.
    Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
    Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot. Yeah!

    The onion is a tuberous vegetable and is a member of the genus stinkus delicioso. It was highly prized by the ancient Egyptian pharaohs, and their friends and cousins-a. They cause watering of the eyes and rubifaction of the skin, but it is very, very tasty. (huhuh)

    Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
    Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot.
    Onions, onions, la la la. Onions, onions, ha ha ha.
    Root toot doodle-ee-oot doot doo doot.

    How vewwy, vewwy cwude!

    A recent change has altered the original order of the messages in the 'facts' box above. While this usually isn't obvious, in the case of this page, it makes the messages a bit more nonsensical.

    If she is not the sister, than I have been fooled for ? years.

    Oh well, I found out a few years ago that it was not Rod Stewart playing the harmonica on My Boy Lollipop by Millie Small.

    And Hue Downs was not The Little Green Man (I wuv you).

    Susan Christie has a deeper voice than Lou on her song.
