I'm a little acorn brown,
Lying on a dusty ground.
Everybody steps on me.
That is why I'm cracked, you see.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut. I'm a nut.

I called myself on the phone
Just to see if I am home.
I asked myself for a date,
At the latest half past 8.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut. I'm a nut.

I like myself. I think I'm grand.
I go to the movies and I hold my hand.
I wrap my arms around my waist.
If I get fresh, I slap my face.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut. I'm a nut.

I can sing and I can dance.
I've got ruffles on my—
Oops! Boys, take another guess.
I've got ruffles on my dress.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut.
I'm a nut. I'm a nut. I'm a nut.

I'm a Nut

I'm a little coconut, sitting under a coconut tree.
Everybody steps on me, that is why I'm cracked you see.
I'm a nut, in a rut, I'm cra-a-zy.

Called myself on the telephone, just to see if I was home.
Asked myself out on a date. Told myself "Be ready by eight."
I'm a nut, in a rut, I'm cra-a-zy.

Took myself to the picture show. Sat myself in the very front row.
Wrapped my arms around my waist, got so fresh I slapped my face.
I'm a nut, in a rut, I'm cra-a-zy.

Bought some roses at the store, told myself I wanted more.
That's why I broke up with me, now I am a nut that's free.
I'm a nut, In a rut, I'm cra-a-zy.

Coca-Cola went to town, Pepsi-Cola shot him down.
Dr. Pepper fixed him up, now we all drink 7-Up.
I'm a nut, in a rut, I'm cra-a-zy.

7-Up got the flu, now we all drink Mountain Dew.
Mountain Dew went to a shrink, now we all drink from the sink.
I'm a nut, in a rut, I'm cra-a-zy.

I like me, I like me I love myself to death
I like me, I like me till i`m right out of breath
I stop at every slot machine that I should chance to pass
I give myself a hug and squeeze as I look in the glass

I like me, I like me and my love doesn`t bore
Every day in every way I love me more and more

...A song heard around 1952, sounds like it should be titled *I like me*, I used to know more verses but cannot bring them to mind at the moment.

Cantor Eddie - I Love Me

When people write their songs of love they write of one another
It's always sis, or ma, or pa, or sweetheart, wife, or brother
But love songs that they've aimed at me have all gone on the shelf
I don't think that it's fair, so now I'll write one for myself.

I love me, I love me, I love myself to death
I love me, I love me, till I'm all out of breath
I stop at every slot machine that I should chance to pass
And give myself a hug and squeeze as I look in the glass!
Oh, I love me, I love me, I'm wild about sweet me
I love me, only me, so I'm content you see,
I like myself with such delight
I take me right straight home each night
And sleep with me till broad day light
I'm wild about myself.

I love me, I love me, my birthday's once a year
I love me, Only me, and when my birthday's near
I go with me and buy myself some gifts to put away
Then I surprise myself with them when I wakes up that day!
Lyrics www.allthelyrics.com/lyrics/cantor_eddie/
I love me, I love me, I'll marry me some day
Right away, Saturday, I'll give me all my pay
With me I like to make a date
To meet myself at half-past eight
If I'm not there I never wait
I'm wild about myself.

I know a girl who has the boys proposing by the dozen
Among her lists are rich and poor and even one lone cousin
But when she speaks of love to me I treat her with disdain
I loudly shout, 'There's someone else!'
And then this wild refrain:

Oh I love me, I love me, and every place I go
I love me, I love me, and at the movie show
I take myself right by the arm and push me through the crowd
And listen to myself repeat the titles right out loud.
I love me, I love me, I love to squeeze my hand
I love me, I love me, It always feels so grand
With me I get right in my tub
I let myself give me a rub
Oh how I love to feel me scrub
I'm wild about myself.

I love me, I love me, I'm wild about myself
I love me, I love me, my picture's on my shelf.
You may not think I look so good, but me thinks I'm divine
It's grand when I look in my eyes and know I'm mine, all mine!
I love me, I love me, and my love doesn't bore
Day by day in every way I love me more and more.
I take me to a quiet place
I put my arm around my waist...
If me gets fresh I slap my face!
I'm wild about myself.

I Love Me

performed by Vaudeville Comedian Billy Murray (Victor 19066-B)

Transcribed by Randy A. Riddle, recording from the Goatboy collection

Real Audio excerpt from "I Love Me" by Billy Murray   
Real Audio excerpt from "I Love Me" sung by Billy Clarke from Silvertone 2293-B, which contains the extra lyrics from Goatboy's piano roll

When people write their songs of love they write of one another   
It's always Sis or Ma and Pa, a sweetheart or a brother   
But love songs that they've aimed at me have all gone on the shelf   
I don't think that is fair, so I'll write one of myself.
I love me, I love me, I love myself to death   
I love me, I love me, 'till I'm all out of breath   
I stop at every slot machine that I should chance to pass   
And give myself a hug and squeeze as I look in the glass

Oh, I love me, I love me, I'm wild about sweet me   
I love me, only me, so I'm content you see   
With me I like to make a date   
To meet myself at half past eight   
If I'm not there, I never wait   
I'm wild about myself

I love me, I love me, everyplace I go   
I love me, I love me, and at a movie show   
I take myself right by the arm and push me through the crowd   
And listen to myself read me the titles right out loud

Oh, I love me, I love me, I love to squeeze my hand   
I love me, I love me, it always feels so grand   
With me I get right in my tub   
I let myself give me a rub   
Oh, how I love to feel me scrub   
I'm wild about myself.

I love me, I love me, I'm wild about myself   
I love me, I love me, my picture's on my shelf   
You may think I look so good but me thinks I'm just fine   
It's grand when I look in my eyes and know they're mine all mine

I love me, I love me, and my love doesn't bore   
Day by day in every way, I love me more and more   
I take me to a quiet place   
I put my arm around my waist   
If me gets fresh, I slap my face (Oh! Ma!)   
I'm wild about myself

You can see the sheet music at the National Library of Australia:

I LOVE ME (I'M WILD ABOUT MYSELF)
Words and music by Will Mahoney
New York: Broadway Music Corporation, ©1923

[Lyrics are close enough to the versions already posted that I don't think it's worth posting again.]

There are recordings by:

Clinton Ford on "Run to the Door: The Piccadilly/Pye Anthology"

Mel Blanc on "Greatest Hits"

Eddie Cantor on "The Columbia years: 1922-1940"

Tiny Tim on "Live! At the Royal Albert Hall"

My grand-dad used to sing:

I love me; I think I'm grand
I go to the movies just to hold my hand
Sit right through the second show
Just because I love me so.
