I'm a Kindergarten teacher who would like to find the words to "Lonely Little Petunia." I think the first line is, 'I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch.' Can anyone please help me? Thank you!

Ooooh! I'm going to be frustrated until somebody is able to post this song. I looked through a huge stack of fake books, and couldn't find it. You'd think one of them would have the song, since the phrase has become such a part of our language.
All I was able to find out is the information about the 78 RPM record:
Arthur Godfrey with the Too Fat Trio
Little Guy/I'm a Lonely Little Petunia (In an Onion Patch)

This person apparently has a copy of the record. Maybe if you send an e-mail, the person will be nice enough to transcribe it for us.
-Joe Offer, seriously frustrated-

Ahhhhhhh.
Well, I wasn't frustrated very long, I guess. I think that last line is "Oh, won't you come and play with me?" Right?
