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.
