The Lyrics

Cumin's a popular spice used on all the cooking shows. Pronounced like human but with a c. Always thought it was spelt cuman until I looked it up.
Come on baby, try the spice
Wipe your tears
Onions are now sliced and diced
Won't you please just try it?

The food would never mess you up now
I'm just wanting someone to taste it
I know it's good, I tried it now
So fill your stomach with this stuff

It's only cumin
No flesh or blood, just spice
But don't it taste nice

So many nights I longed to try it
So many times I bought some other stuff
Nothing could change the way I feel
Nothing else was ever up to snuff

It's only cumin
No flesh or blood, just spice
But don't it taste nice

It is just a spice
(Cumin, cumin)
Please just try it

The tears you cry are from onions
They'll just end up in recycle bins
I tried it now, now I ask the same of you
While we were apart I ate cumin too

(Cumin, cumin)
It's only cumin
No flesh or blood, just spice
It is just a spice
But don't it taste nice

(Cumin, cumin)

Great song and title switch. Anything spiced with cumin tastes good! Spicing you up with 5's!
