The Lyrics

Written 25 years to the day after his "Crisis of Confidence" speech, July 15, 1979, though he never used the word "malaise" -- there's a parody somewhere based on that word.
Well, there's a guy goin' 'round lookin' for some votes from you.
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)
Oh, well, post-Watergate, we want a guy that's true.
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)
All my friends tell me that they will give him votes.
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)
"And I'll never lie to you" from Jimmy Carter's throat.
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)

I like Peanut Farmer, his name's Jimmy Carter.
He will never lie to you!

(Peanut, peanut farmer!)
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)

I like Peanut Farmer, his name's Jimmy Carter.
He will never lie to you!

Well, I fell out of work and I caught lots of grief.
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)
What happened to the guy with all the big teeth?
(Peanut, peanut farmer!)
Iran took hostages and we're in malaise!
(Goodbye, peanut farmer!)
Ronnie Reagan promises much better days!
(Goodbye, peanut farmer!)

Goodbye, peanut farmer!
So long, Jimmy Carter!
Take your brother Billy, too!

Ex-President Carter
since has gone much farther!
Nobel Prize, a winner, too!
I will not lie to you: I expect some good votes... which is more than Jimmy could expect in 1980!

Fine...have some fives, Michael. In a somewhat embarrassing bit of self trivia...for the longest time...when I was a little girl...and I really don't know why...I swore I heard it on the news...but...I thought that Jimmy Carter was the one who shot Reagan...you know...out of spite or something...to this day I can't explain myself...

Great parody, Mike! I don't remember anything about the speech, mostly because 7/15/79 was the day before my fourth birthday, but the parody was great (even though I didn't agree with most of it)! I'm going to give you all fives.

All right... who had to ruin the ballot box with a 1-1-1 vote?? This parody was not, and I repeat NOT, off paced! >:(

What I don't like about this popular early 60s r&b novelty song is that it was remade by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Did you know that?

What I don't like about this popular early 60s r&b novelty song is that it was remade by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on their Brother For Sale album. I like the original version, John McCutcheon's remake, and the J. Geils Band cover. but unfortunately on his Howjadoo album some of the lyrics were changed, and the J. Geils Band cover doesn't sound like the original version. Have you heard any of these covers? do you know who John McCutcheon is?
