lyrics

The Wind Cries Onan

2 X drums
4 X ONAN chant [continues under A sections]
2 X harmony choir[ahh ahh ahh etc.]

When the night is cold
and you’re all alone,
And there’s nothing on TV…
Oh the wind cries, “Onan…” [oh the wind cries, “Onan…” ]
Oh the wind cries, “Onan…” [oh the wind cries, “Onan…” ]

Is it such a sin?
Is it such a mortal crime,
To let your hands roam free?
When the wind cries, “Onan…” [When the wind cries, “Onan…” ]
When the wind cries, “Onan…” [When the wind cries, “Onan…” ]

Do you doodle with your noodle?
Make a date with Rosy Palm?
Do you choke the rubber chicken? [whispered: chicken!]

Do you yank your doodle dandy?
Play a solo on the flute?
Do you spank the naughty monkey? [whispered: naughty monkey]

Damn right you do! [echo: damn right you do!]

When the bars close down
And your friends have all hooked up
Oh forlorn, you journey home…
And the wind cries, “Onan…” [And the wind cries, “Onan…” ]
And the wind cries, “Onan…” [And the wind cries, “Onan…” ]

Are we going blind?
Is it such disgrace?
To spend this precious time alone?
When the wind cries, “Onan…” [When the wind cries, “Onan…” ]
When the wind cries, “Onan…” [When the wind cries, “Onan…” ]

Do you rub your nubby nub?
Do you squeeze the juicy peach?
Do you tame the tuna taco? [whispered: taco]

Do you beat the flaming bush?
Do you ride the pink canoe?
Do you feed the bearded clam? [whispered: bearded clam]

Damn right you do! [damn right you do!]
Damn right you do! [damn right you do!]

Spoken: “And now, chant with us, that we might exit the stage with grace…”

Tickle me elmo
Tickle me elmo
Tickle me elmo
Tickle me elmo
And fade…
