Peanut Song
Hello all. im new to this web site.
My grandfather recently remember a song that he had heard about 40 or 50 years ago. He really wanted me to find it for him and i would love to do that if i could. The song he heard was on a radio and he had only heard it once. It is called Peanut Song. The only thing i could find were 2 websites that contained only lyrics.

http://www.kididdles.com/lyrics/s026.html

http://books.google.com/books?id=SxtBAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA44&lpg=PA44&dq=you+shan't+have+any+of+my+peanuts&source=web&ots=hWSZFlcxBg&sig=-krY1AACDXafU4vHqCQHzmSDlr4&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=2&ct=result

those are the only two. the second link is a book that was written in 1911 or something so that means the song is preatty old.

I dont know how many versions have been sung but he said that it sounded like it was sung by a whole choir.

I guess what im asking is if anyone has any information on where i can find this song i would greatly appreciate it. It would really make my grandfather happy. thanks for your help.

THE PEANUT VENDOR, - Lyrics

IN CUBA, EACH MERRY MAID WAKES UP WITH THIS SERENADE;

`PEANUTS!

THEY`RE NICE AND HOT,

PEANUTS!

I SELL A LOT.

IF YOU HAVEN`T GOT BANANAS,

DON`T BE BLUE,

FRESHLY ROASTED TODAY!`

IF YOU`RE LOOKING FOR A MORAL TO HIS SONG,

FIFTY MILLION MONKEYS CAN`T BE WRONG.


IN CUBA,

HIS SMILING FACE IS WELCOME MOST EV`RY PLACE;

`PEANUTS!` THEY HEAR HIM CRY,

`PEANUTS!` THEY ALL REPLY.

`IF YOU`RE LOOKING FOR AN EARLY MORNING TREAT,

I EAT MORE THAN I SELL!`

IF AN APPLE KEEPS THE DOCTOR FROM YOUR DOOR,

PEANUTS OUGHT TO KEEP HIM FROM YOU EVERMORE.


PEANUTS! WE`LL MEET AGAIN,

PEANUTS! THIS STREET AGAIN,

PEANUTS! YOU`LL EAT AGAIN,

YOUR PEANUT MAN,

THAT PEANUT MAN`S GONE.
