Three Little Peanuts


I know something I won't tell
Three little peanuts in one shell
One can sing and one can dance
One can wear a pair of pants.

Information About Three Little Peanuts

The rhyme is sung to the tune usually associated with a calliope. It was always sung when you found three peanuts in one shell to bring you good luck and it sometimes was finished with the old line, "Shave and a haircut, two bits".

There are rabbits in the peanut shell

I know something I won't tell,
Three little rabbits in a peanut shell.
One can sing, one can dance,
One can sew a pair of pants.

I still remember this rhyme from elementary music class, except the first line was different: "I know something YOU don't know". It was lots of fun, and there were motions to it, but I don't remember all of them.

I love peanuts! Not straight out of the shell, though - salted. And I don't really like the peanut sweets you can get.
