There are a couple of recordings of Hot Nuts floating around. I think I have one somewhere by Roosevelt Sykes and I know the late George Melly recorded it years ago. Verses I recall

Nuts, hot nuts, get them from the peanut man
Nuts, hot nuts, you'd better get them while you can

See that man dressed in red? He plays with his nuts while he's in bed
See that man dressed in green? He's got the biggest nuts I've ever seen
See that man dressed in black? He carries his nuts around in a sack

etc. etc.

A somewhat different version was recorded by L'il Hohnson in 1934. The lyric is here
