Groovin' Peanut Butter and Jelly

Traditional Children's Song Lyrics
Jack Hartmann, M.A.


This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Hip-Hop AlphaBop 2.

Suggested activities from Jack Hartmann:
This song builds skills in sequencing and comprehension of auditory language.
Children can develop cognitive skills with re-telling of the song/story. Review what happened first, second, third and fourth with the peanuts and with the grapes.

Chorus:
Peanut butter — And Jelly!
Peanut butter — And Jelly!
Peanut butter — And Jelly!
Peanut butter — And Jelly!

First you take the peanuts
And you dig them.
Dig them.
(Children repeat.)

Then you take the shells
And you crack them.
Crack them.

Then you take the shells
And you crack them.
Crack them.

Next, you take the peanuts
And you mash them.
Mash them.

Then you take the bread
And you spread it.
Spread it.

Chorus:
Peanut butter — And Jelly!
Peanut butter — And Jelly!
Peanut butter — And Jelly!
Peanut butter — And Jelly!

Next, you take the grapes
And you pick them.
Pick them.
Next, you take the grapes
And you pick them.
Pick them.

Then you take the grapes
And you squish them.
Squish them.

Then you take the bread
And you spread it.
Spread it.

Now, you take the sandwich
And you eat it
Eat it.

Dig them
Crack them
Mash them
Spread it.
Mmmmmm Mmmmmm looks good.

Pick them
Squish them
Spread it
And eat it
Tastes good.

Peanut butter — And Jelly!
