The Peanut Vendor

The Peanut Vendor

(Moises Simons / L.Rittenberg / L.W.Gilbert)


Roy Fox and his Band

Take 2 top, take 3 bottom

In Cuba each merry maid wakes up with this seranade
Peanuts (they're nice and hot)
Peanuts (he sells a lot)
Peanuts

If you haven't got bananas don't be blue
Peanuts in a little bag are calling you
Don't waste them (no tummy ache)
You'll taste them (when you're awake)

For at the very break of day
The peanut vendor's on his way
At dawning the whistle blows
(through every city, town and country lane
You hear him sing his plantive little strain)
And as he goes by to you he'll say
(Big jumbos) big jumbo ones
(Come buy those) peanuts roasted today
(Come buy those freshly roasted today)

If you're looking for a moral to this song
50 million monkeys can't be wrong

Peanuts (they're nice and hot)
Peanuts (he sells a lot)
Peanuts
If you haven't got bananas don't be blue
Peanuts in a little bag are calling you

(Big jumbos) big jumbo ones
(Come buy those) peanuts roasted today
(Come buy those freshly roasted today)

If you're looking for a moral to this song
50 million little monkeys can't be wrong


(Peanuts) we'll meet again
