The Onion Song Lyrics

The world is just a great big onion
And pain and fear are the spices that make you cry
And the only way to get rid of this great big onion
Is to plant love seeds until it dies, uh, huh

Hey, world, we got a great big job to do, yeah
We need you and everybody who loves truth

You know we got to clean up this place
And reach far higher, oh, yeah, yes, we do now
We gotta be headstrong about rightin' the wrong
And make a mountain of happy souls, oh, oh

Baby, the world is just a great big onion
And 'I don't care' is the face people like to wear, yes, it is now
And the only way to get rid of this great big onion
Every one single soul's got to do their share, tell about it, baby
So come on, let's knock on every door
Tell them love is the answer
Whether they're rich or poor, oh, yeah

And we don't care what you do
How you look or your status claim, baby
No, no, because 'Brothers and Sisters'
From now on is gonna be everyone's name, oh, oh

The world is just a great big onion
And pain and fear are the spices that make you cry, yes, it is
And the only way to get rid of this great big onion
Is to plant love seeds, now everybody got to plant love seeds
Come on and plant love seeds until it dies

The world is just a great big onion
