Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, anybody here want to buy my nuts?
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, I've got nuts for sale.
One for five, two for ten,
If you buy 'em once, you'll buy 'em again.
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, you buy 'em from the peanut man.

Nuts, hot nuts, anybody here want to buy my nuts?
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, I've got nuts for sale.
You tell me your nuts is mighty fine,
But I bet your nuts isn't hot as mine.
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, you buy 'em from the peanut man.

Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, anybody here want to buy my nuts?
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, I've got nuts for sale.
You tell me that man's nuts is mighty small,
Best to have small nuts than have no nuts at all;
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, you buy 'em from the peanut man.

Spoken: Hot nuts? Peanuts! Nutsies? Nuts!

Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, anybody here want to buy some nuts?
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, I've got nuts for sale.
You see that man all dressed in brown,
He's got the hottest nuts in town.
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, you buy 'em from the peanut man.

Nuts, hot nuts, anybody here want to buy my nuts?
Sellin' nuts, hot nuts, I've got nuts for sale.
When a hog gets hungry, he begins to grunt,
When a man gets hungry, he begins to hunt,
For nuts, hot nuts, you buy 'em from the peanut man.
