Lonely Little Petunia

Lyrics

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
Chatting with a flower
and here ís the tale the flower told.

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 ís so strong it takes my breath away.

I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch,
oh won't you come and play with me.

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.

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.

When I was in grade school in the mid 1940's, we sang and performed this song before a School Carnival Audience. I was dressed up like a Petunia (Crepe paper dress) while my classmates were the onions in the onion patch!

I used to sing this song in grade school, in the 1940's. Those were the good old days when the teacher taught everything in one classroom, including music.
