WE'RE FEEDING THE BABY ONIONS
Bigelow & Miller (1915)

1. Somebody came to our house, somebody came to stay
Father is happy, so happy with joy,
Hes half the owner of a ten-pound boy
When he arrived without his hair or teeth
The racket he made could a brass band beat
And when he yells, no one can tell
Where he is and so

Chorus
Were feeding the baby onions so we can find him in the dark
For when he starts to holler, you can hear it in the park
It falls, it squalls, at night it bawls
It sounds through all the walls
So were feeding the baby onions
So we can find him in the dark

2. We fed it on the sweetest things, trying to keep it quiet
Grandpa would dance on his hickory log
And father would stand on his head and beg
But when the shadows of night would fall
Then Kid Napoleon would start to bawl
Hate to tell you but its true
To find him in the dark
