I LOVE ONIONS
(John Hill / Donald Cochrane)  Dick James Music Limited


Origin:
A Side Single on CBS Records
Also available on:
Greatest Hits (Digital Album)
The Singles Collection CD (7T's)

Released on 5th November 1971, this was the fourth single by Chicory Tip
but one that was given up on when the chance came to record and release
"Son Of My Father."  When that decision was made all promotion for the song
stopped and it was effectively withdrawn as a serious contender for the charts.

This single is probably the most unusual A side of the band's career. It sounds
completely different from anything they recorded, and it was the final single of
the old style Chicory Tip before "Son Of My Father" changed things forever.

The single was written by John Hill and Donald Cochrane and was a 1966 American
single by Susan Christie. John Hill produced that song and the pair wrote the
B side too. Susan's version made Number 63 in the Billboard American charts but
did better in Canada, climbing to 19, There were other versions of this track and if you
want to listen to some of them and watch Jacki Weaver sing it, go to the Video page.

LYRICS

I don't like toads or snails or frogs
Or strange things living under logs
But ooh ooh, I love onions
I don't like dancing with crazy Flo
She's always jumping on my toes
But ooh ooh, I love onions

Chorus

Onions Onions Fa La La, Onions Onions Ha Ha Ha
Root toot do do, do do do doo
Onions Onions Fa La La, Onions Onions Ha Ha Ha
Root toot do do, do do do doo


I don't like rain or snow or hail
Or Moby Dick, the great white whale
But ooh ooh, I love onions
My garden is unique beside the sea
It's planted full of onions just for me
I don't like shoes that pinch your toes
Or people who squirt you with a garden hose

Chorus repeat

My garden is unique beside the sea
It's planted full of onions just for me
I don't like toads or snails or frogs

Or strange things living under logs
But ooh ooh, I love onions

Chorus repeat
