Found a Peanut


Lyrics

1. Found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut just now.
Just now I found a peanut, found a peanut just now.

2. Cracked it open…

3. It was rotten…

4. Ate it anyway…

5. Got a stomach ache…

6. Called the doctor…

7. Penicillin…

8. Operation…

9. Died anyway..

10. Went to heaven…

11. Wouldn’t take me…

12. Went the other way…

13. Didn’t want me…

14. Was a dream…

15. Then I woke up…

16. Found a peanut…

This is the same tune as Clementine


Idea

This is a ballad (a song that tells a story). Have students make up their own story to this same tune.

  1. I learned it as “last night” instead of “just now” which makes more sense if you think about all of the things that are happening.
