FIVE SALTED PEANUTS

(Charlie Abbott)

Tony Pastor & His Orch. (vocal: Tony Pastor) - 1945

Also recorded by: The Counts & The Countess

 

I always hoped to get a lot,

but all I ever got

was five salted peanuts.

I keep hoping come what may,

Maybe there will come a day,

I'll find a machine they forgot to fix.

Instead of five, I'll get six

I put a penny in the slot

And all I ever got

Was five salted peanuts.

I put all my money in

But I don't ever win.

It's driving me nuts.

Those darn machines know how to count.

I always get the same amount.

I put a penny in the slot

And all I ever got

Was five salted peanuts.
