Hang on little tomato

It’s based on an advertisement for Hunt’s ketchup from an October 16th 1964 issue of Life magazine. There’s this little green tomato clinging to the vine and the narrator says “Hang on little tomato. Stay on the vine until you’re fat and juicy. Then we’ll pluck you and boil you and secret bump in spices, turn you into ketchup and if you’re lucky some smart hamburger may then team up with you”. So this is a song of hope.

The sun has left and forgotten me

Its dark, I cannot see

Why does this rain pour down

I’m gonna drown

In a sea

Of deep confusion

Somebody told me, I don’t know who

Whenever you are sad and blue

And you’re feeling all alone and left behind

Just look inside you and you’ll find

You gotta hold on, hold on through the night

Hang on, things will be all right

Even when it’s dark

And not a bit of sparkling

Sing-song sunshine from above

Spreading rays of sunny love

Just hang on, hang on to the vine

Stay on, soon you’ll be divine

If you start to cry, look up to the sky

Something’s coming up ahead

To turn your tears to dew instead

And so I hold on to this advice

When change is hard and not so nice

You listen to your heart the whole night through

Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you
