Lyrics (English 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 THIS 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.
