Found a peanut, found a peanut....

A question about a children's song (I think?)

So, almost everyone knows some version of the "Found a Peanut" song. I seem to know a different version, though, but I can only remember up to the "Burnt my Finger" verse, so I need some help.

The version I see while searching goes like this:

Found a peanut, found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now,
Just now I found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now.

Cracked it open, cracked it open,
Cracked it open just now,

The version *I* know goes like this:

...And that's where I get stuck. There *is* more, but I can't remember!

So...anyone remember the rest of that version? *hopes*
