A purple onion...
Purple Onion...
Purple onion everybody laugh now
Purple onion everybody cry
Purple onion lookin' down at B.O.B.
when he crashed his motorcycle and he died
Old Bob Zimmerman knew the purple onion
Purple onion gave ol' Bob five
Purple onion yankin' like a freight train
Shoot white tears up into the sky
Purple onion
A purple onion...

    General CommentI think he's trying to imply that "Purple onion" is some godly force.

    General CommentI highly doubt this is what they meant by it but when I first heard the term Purple Onion, I thought of an onion of purple (an oz. of purple haze).
