They call him Walnuthead
He’s dead
He stalks this night with fright
That’s right, friend
Feelin’ ’round for your headbone
To take it for his very own

And while he tries the fit
He puts a walnut on the stump in place of it
And if it don’t fit, he thinks “What the heck?”
And puts the walnut back on his own neck

It’s kind of hard to see
When you’ve got a walnut where your head should be
So he’s led around by his homeboy Shufflefoot
And as he shuffles, this is what he sings:

Walnuthead
Walnuthead and me
Walnuthead
Nasty as we want to be

He sings, “I’m Shufflefoot
I’m the funky ghoul
While he takes your head
I take your left shoe yeah
We haunt the night y’all him and me
Now let me tell you the story of how we came to be

Our party barge was large, that’s right Sarge,
I pushed him overboard, propeller smashed his gourd,
But I fell over too, it caught my shoe,
That’s why I shuffle like I do

Walnuthead
Walnuthead and me
Walnuthead
Nasty as we want to be”

So don’t go out in the woods alone
Don’t pick up any walnuts you find laying on the ground
‘Cause you never know where they might have been
And the last thing you hear just might be someone singing

Walnuthead
Walnuthead and me
Walnuthead
Nasty as we want to be
