Once there was a little man
Who lived in quite a strange house,

With some pretty golden thread,
With some pretty golden thread.

But the pretty thread was broken,
Pirouette peanut butter,
But the pretty thread was broken,
And the nose-tip flew away,
And the nose-tip flew away.

A jet plane in the clear, blue sky,
Pirouette peanut butter,
A jet plane in the clear, blue sky,
Got the flying nose-tip back,
Got the flying nose-tip back.

If you really like my story,
Pirouette peanut butter,
If you really like my story,
I can sing it once again,
I can sing it once again.

Now my story is finished,
Pirouette peanut butter,
Now my story is finished,
Ladies and gentlemen clap your hands,
Ladies and gentlemen clap your hands.
