A sequel (of sorts) to Spanish Onion

lyrics

7. Nightshade
Lead vocal by Tom Ato

In the land of nightshade
there do dwell
tom arto, tom ato, potarto, potatoes as well
red bell pepper and eggplant too
some people say that the nightshades are deadly for you

So we say please, of us beware
we don’t want your tummy to despair
if when you eat us, you don’t feel great
maybe you should keep nightshades off your plate

Chorus
Na na na na na nanna Nightshade
na na na na na nana Nightshade
na na na nana nana na
na na na nana na
nana na nana Nightshade

In the land of nightshade
there are flowers and weeds
some of them have poison inside their seeds
like Belladonna, my sister cruel
she can leave a blister inside you

Our spicy chillis have many names
some of them will leave your mouth in flames
so if you’re not completely sure
maybe you should kick nightshades out the door

Chorus

Come on down come on down
to the dark side of town
wear your dressing gown
to where the moon shines down
see us come to life
in the silver light
make a friend of your fears
we have existed for thousands of years

And oh we mean no harm
some of us just have a strange kind of charm
so if you have the heart to give us a bite
maybe you can bring nightshade into the light

Chorus

Nightshade
woah nightshade

Maybe you can eat nightshade EVERY NIGHT!!
