The Lyrics

I'm just a-sittin' in the gallery stands
One of so many peanuts here attending the show
And while I'm watching I see Buffalo Bob
Taking one final belt before "on air" we go

And if you've never been on television before
And you're just watching from your livingroom floor, don't tell me
I'm just a peanut in the Doodyville gang

So much expression can be pulled from one string
Only who's Howdy Doody? He seems so alive
A puppet show can mean so many things
I relate to his problems, though I am only five

And if this sounds like something you have been through before
And they all know you at the soundstage door
Please tell me, I'm just a peanut in the Doodyville gang

Don't spritz him, Clarabell! Ringing yes and honking no
And running rampant on the show, having a ball
And when you see a seltzer bottle with his finger on the throttle
He'll be spritzing them all, spritzing them all

I'm just a-sittin' in the gallery stands
Hearing Flub-a-Dub mangle every word that he speaks
And Dilly-Dally has a birthday today
So they want to surprise him, but the secret leaks

And if you think that live TV is something you'd like
But you're just riding up and down on your bike, don't tell me
I'm just a peanut in the Doodyville gang

Here comes the Bluster clan! Mayor Bluster's nephew Petey
Trying to defeat Howdy Doody, today
And in a contest to see who is best he's cheating on the spelling test
The Blusters will pay, Blusters will pay

Howdy Doody's singing with Buffalo Bob
Making everyone happy, singing along
I'm just a peanut in the Doodyville gang
I'm just a peanut in the Doodyville gang

Clarabell is joining in, honking his horn
Making everyone crazy, doing it wrong
I'm just a peanut in the Doodyville gang
We're just the peanuts in the Doodyville gang
