      About "Onomatopoeia"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "Onomatopoeia"

      Forty-five minutes
      Forty-five cents
      Sixty-five agents sitting on a fence
      Singing, hey brother

      Look what we got for you
      We're gonna rope off an area
      And put on a show
      From the Canadian border

      Down to Mexico
      It might be the most
      Potentially gross
      Thing that we could possibly do

      Yeah, little buddy gonna get your chance
      Make them pubescents all wet their pants
      We'll record it live
      And that's no jive.

      Hold it! Stop it! No! No! No! No!
      Bang! went the pistol.
      Crash! went the window.
      Ouch! went the son of a gun.

      Onomatopoeia
      I don't want to see ya
      Speaking in a foreign tongue.
      Knock! Knock! Hello!

      Can I come in?
      Gee, that was a wonderful show!
      Oh, you haven't gone on yet?
      Well, how was I supposed to know?

      Hey! We got a great date
      It's really downtown
      We're gonna get the Grand Canyon
      To do the sound

      It's a boxing ring
      But it might be the thing
      To really put you in the dough
      Listen little brother, don't ya get us wrong

      Why we even know the words to your song
      Just say I do
      And we'll lay it on you
      You! You! And me! Me! Me!

      Bang! went the pistol
      Crash! Went the window
      Ouch! Went the son of a gun
      Onomatopoeia

      I don't want to see ya
      Speaking in a foreign tongue.
