Peanut butter is fun and gooey
some people think that’s just plain hooey.
They don’t understand the joy of the spread
smear it with jelly on your favorite bread.
Too silly for grown up, it’s just kids stuff
they frown and growl in a great big huff.
They’ve just lost touch with the joys of youth
they must be served in a restaurant booth.
No frills or china required my friend
doesn’t cost a bundle, no rules to bend.
Enjoy a sandwich, use a napkin or two
with peanut butter and jelly you never feel blue!
