Choo choo peanut buttah...

Every Tuesday, Mr. John brings a guitar to Elliott's class and plays songs for the kids. He comes to the class I teach too, and he usually just sings one song and works in melodies of other ones occasionally. But he loves the peanut song, and now I do too. I discovered that Elliott liked to sing this song when he found a cardboard cutout of a guitar and pretended to play it while singing "Choo Choo Train, Choo Choo Train" over and over again.
Don't understand what we're saying? The words are
A peanut sat on a railroad track,
his heart was all aflutter (or if you're Ell, a-fuddah)
along came a big old choo choo train (if you don't sing the next line, he gets stuck here)
Choo Choo Peanut Butter (Ell: Buddah)!
