You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown: (CB) Some days I wake up early to watch the sunrise, and I think how beautiful it is, and how my life lies before me, and I get a very positive feeling about things. Like this morning for instance: the sky's so clear and the sun's so bright. How can anything go wrong on a day like this?

(His alarm clock goes off)

I'm late!

SNOOPY: Woof!

ALL: (Except CB) You're a good man, Charlie Brown
You're the kind of reminder we need!
You have humility, nobility and a sense of honor that is very rare indeed.

SNOOPY: Woof!

ALL: You're a good man, Charlie Brown
And we know you will go very far

Yes, its hard to believe
Almost frightening to conceive
What a good man you are.

SCHROEDER: You are kind.

ALL: You are kind to all the animals
And ev'ry little bird
With a heart of gold
You believe what you're told...

LUCY: Every single solitary word.

ALL: You bravely face adversity
You're cheereful through the day
You're thughtful, brave and courteous

LUCY: And you also have some faults but for the moment lets just say

ALL: That you're a good man, Charlie Brown
You're a prince and a prince could be king
With a heart such as yours
You could open any doors
You could go out and do anything
You could be king Charlie Brown
You could be king!

*CB: Everybody says to me-

ALL: You're a good man, Charlie Brown

CB: Every voice in harmony

ALL: You're a good man, Charlie Brown

CB: All I need is one more try
Gotta get that kite to fly
And I'm not the kind of guy
who gives up easily.
Wonder why they stop to say:

ALL: You're a good man, Charlie Brown

CB: Never liked me anyway

ALL: You're a good man, Charlie Brown

CB: Trying not to rock the boat
Not to make a scene
A good man, yes but I confess
I don't know what they mean.
I wanna rise like I should and do everything right
But I lie awake at night

ALL: Never sleep

CB: With questions in my ear

ALL: Loud and deep

CB: I wanna join the dance

ALL: Take the leap

CB: But the answer isn't clear
Then I hear:

ALL: Charlie Brown... Charlie Brown...
You're a good man, Charie Brown
You're a good man, Charlie Brown

(School bus honks)

SCHROEDER: Get on the bus!

LUCY: Get on the bus!

LINUS: Go ahead, get on the bus, Charlie Brown!

SALLY: Don't wanna be late for school!

ALL: That's right!

CB: Don't wanna be late!

ALL: Don't wanna be late for school!

SNOOPY: Woof!

OTHERS: You're a good man, Charlie Brown
You're the kind of reminder we need
You have humility, nobility and a sense of honor that is very rare indeed!

CB: (overlapping) There they go again!
Don't know what they mean
I'm not good- I'm not bad
I'm somewhere in between

SNOOPY: Woof!

OTHERS: You're a good man, Charlie Brown

CB: I don't understand

OTHERS: You're a prince and a prince could be king
With a heart such as yours
You could open any doors
You could go out and do anything.
You could be king, Charlie Brown
You could be king!

CB: Nothing lasts forever

OTHERS: You could be king!

CB: All good things must end

OTHERS: Believe it

CB: I've memorized that phrase by heart

OTHERS: And you were born for this part

CB: So tell me, I need to know it!

OTHERS: (overlapping) You're a good man
You're a good man, Charlie Brown

CB: When do the good things start?

LUCY/SCHROEDER: You're a good man, Charlie Brown
You're a good man, Charlie Brown

LINUS/SALLY: Bravely facing adversity you can open up any door

SNOOPY: Oh you're a good man

ALL: You're a good man, Charlie Brown!

SCHROEDER

LUCY: D'ya know something Schroeder?
I think the way you play the piano is nice.
D'ya know something else?
Its always been my dream to marry a man who plays the piano.

At parties he's play something nice like April Showers
I'm sure you could play something nice like April Showers
Or even "Frere Jacques"
Beethoven's nice too...

Just imagine
What would you think if someday you and I should get married?
Wouldn't you like that if someday we two should get married?

My Aunt Marion was right... never try to discuss marriage with a musician.

SNOOPY

SNOOPY: They like me.
I think they're swell.
Isn't it remarkable how things work out so well?
Pleasant day. Pretty sky.
Life goes on, here I lie.
Not bad. Not bad at all.

Faithful friends, always near me.
Bring me bones, scratch my ear

Little birds, come to cheer me
Ev'ry day... sitting here... on my stomach
With their sharp little claws
Which are usually cold
And occassionally painful
And sometimes there are so many
That I can hardly stand it!

RATS!

I feel every now and then that I gotta bite someone!
I know ev'ry now and then what I wanna be!
A fierce jungle animal crouched on the limb of a tree!

GIRLS: (Offstage) La la la la la la la la la la la la la

SNOOPY: La la la la la la la la la la la la la
I'd stay very very still til I see a victim come
I'd wait knowing very well every second counts.
And then like the fierce jungle creature I am
I would pounce!
I'd pounce! I'd pounce!
I-ayayayayayayayay....

You know, I never realized it was so far down to the ground from up here.

Let me see... where was I?
Oh, thats right... the pretty sky...
Not bad, not bad at all!
Not bad... not bad at all...

I wonder if it will snow tonight.

(He howls)

My Blanket And Me

LINUS: (Enters holding his blanket and sucking his thumb)

Mmmm.
Delightful.
Mmmm.

Sucking your thumb without a blanket-
is like eating a cone without ice cream!

My blanket and me!
Its a cozy sanctuary
But its far from necessary
Cause I'm just as self-reliant as before
As a simple demonstration
Of my independant station
I will go and leave my blanket on the floor...

Yes I'll walk away and leave it
Though I know you won't believe it
I'll just walk away and leave it on the floor...

(Hums as he walks away, growing more apprehensive.
He dives onto his blanket)

AUGH!
Don't ever let me do that again!

Its foolish I know it
I'll try to outgrow it
But meanwhile its my blanket and me!

The Kite

CHARLIE BROWN:

Little more speed, little more rope
Little more wind, little more hope
Gotta get this stupid kite to fly.
Gotta make sure it doesn't snag,
Doesn't droop, doesn't drag-
Gotta watch out for every little- whoops!

Little less speed, little more tack,
Little less rise, little more slack
Gotta keep my wits about me now.
Gotta make sure it doesn't get the best of me
Till I get it in the air somehow.

Millions of little kids do it every day,
They make a kite and - 'poof'- its in the sky
Leave it to me to have the one fool kite
Who likes to see a little kid cry!

Little less talk, little more skill
Little less luck, little more will
Gotta face this fellow eye to eye.
Now that I've seen you chasing moles,
Climbing trees, digging holes,
Catching your string on everything passing by
Why not fly?

Wait a minute,
What's it doing?
It isn't on the ground.
It isn't in a tree.
It's in the air!
Look at that- its caught the breeze now,
Its past the trees now
With room to spare!

OH! What a beautiful sight!
And I'm not such a clumsy guy
If I really try,
I can really fly a Ki----

(The kite is eaten by a tree)

The Doctor Is In

CB: Oh, Lucy I'm so depressed. I don't know what to do.

LUCY: I think what you need most of all, Charlie Brown is to come right out and admit all the things that are wrong with you.

CB: All right, I'll try
I'm not very handsome or clever, or lucid,
I've always been stupid at spelling and numbers.
I've never been much playing football, or baseball
Or stickball, or checkers, or marbles, or ping-pong

I'm usually awful at parties and dances,
I stand like a stick or I cough or I laugh
Or I don't bring a present or I spill the ice cream
Or I get so depressed that I stand and I scream
Oh how could there possibly be
One small person as thoroughly, totally, utterly blah as me.

LUCY: Well thats okay for a starter.

CB: A starter?

LUC: Certainly. You don't think that mentioning these few superficial failings is going to do you any good, do you? Why, Charlie Brown, you really have to delve.

You're stupid self-centered and moody...

CB: I'm moody

LUCY: You're terribly dull to be with

CB: Yes I am- and nobody likes me
Not Frieda, or Shermy, or Linus or Schroeder-

LUCY: Or Lucy-

CB: Or Lucy-

LUCY: Or Snoopy-

CB: Or Snoo- Now wait a minute! Snoopy likes me!

LUCY: He only pretends to like you because you feed him. That doesn't count.

CB: Or Snoopy... Oh why was I born just to be
One small person as thoroughly, totally, utterly-

LUCY: Wait!
You're not very much of a person...

CB: That's certain.

LUCY: And yet there is reason for hope

CB: There's hope?

LUCY: For although you are no good at music,
like Schroeder, or happy like Snoopy
or lovely like me...
You have the distinction to be
No one else but the singular remarkable unique Charlie Brown.

CB: I'm Me!

LUCY: YES! It's amazingly true... for whatever its worth, Charlie Brown... you're you.

CB: Gosh, Lucy... you know something. I'm beginning to feel better already. You're a true friend, Lucy. A true friend.

LUCY: That'll be five cents, please.

Beethoven Day

SCHRODER: Call the principal and hand him the news
We've got a holiday that he can't refuse.
A day of harmony, a day of music:
Beethoven's Birthday!

SALLY: Beethoven Day?

SCHROEDER: A reverential mission

LINUS: Beethoven Day?

SCHROEDER: The hope of each musician
No more am I the only guy to stand up and say:
Hooray, Beethoven, Hooray!

CB: Beethoven Day?

LINUS: Yes. As in Ludwig Von Beethoven, composer. Born 1770, died 1827. The eldest of three sons, Ludwig's mother was the daughter of the chief overseer of the kitchen-

LUCY: Whatever, Linus. Schroeder, I just want you to know that I'm on your side. I want to help you, publicity-wise, with Beethoven's Birthday.

SCHROEDER: Thank you for your support, but I just don't want to see Beethoven's Birthday commercialized.

LUCY: Commercialized?

SCHROEDER: Yes. The next thing you know they'll be selling Beethoven sweatshirts.

SNOOPY: (wearing Beethoven sweatshirt) Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: If you're wondering "Now how do we start?"
Just blow the music til you know it by heart!
We're gonna celebrate- we'll throw a party!
Beethoven's Birthday!

OTHERS: Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: And when you say the title...

OTHERS: Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: You hear a great recital!
The right of every boy and girl to stand up and say:

ALL: Hooray, Beethoven, Hooray!

SCHROEDER: Beethoven Day!

OTHERS: Beethoven Day! Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: Beethoven Day!

OTHERS: Beethoven Day! Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: Beethoven Day!- Hey hey hey!

OTHERS: Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: A philharmonic rumble

OTHERS: Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: A polyphonic jumble!
A humble education as we stand up and say:

ALL: Hooray, Beethoven, Hooray!

LUCY: I got it! We'll demand full-page ads in every newspaper!

LINUS: We'll start a chain of Beethoven Superstores!

SALLY: We could build a Beethoven Theme Park!

CB: We could have a bake sale!

SCHROEDER: Wait! That's too commercial!
Let's imagine it. That glorious hour.
Filled with emotion yet inspired with power
When we all honor the man we adore
On the day we place the newest face on Mount Rushmore!

OTHERS: Mount Rushmore.
Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: A moment of reflection

OTHERS: Beethoven Day!

SCHROEDER: A classical injection
So facing this direction we begin it today
A musical collection everybody can play
The right of every boy and girl to stand up and say-

OTHERS: (overlapping) Beethoven Hooray!
It's Beethoven Day!
A time for celebrating Beethoven Way

SCHROEDER: Hooray, Beethoven, Hooray!

OTHERS: La la la la la la la la la la lalala la la

ALL: Hooray!

BOOK REPORT

LUCY: A book report on Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit, Peter Ra-
LINUS: A book report on Peter Ra-
SCHROEDER: A book report on Peter Ra-
CB: A book report on Peter Ra-

ALL: -Abbit.

LUCY: Peter Rabbit is this stupid book about this stupid rabbit who steals vegetables from other people's gardens.
(Counts the words) Hm. 83 to go.

SCHROEDER: The name of the book about which
This book report is about it
Peter Rabbit which is about this... Rabbit.
I found it very.... (crosses out)
I liked the part where... (crosses out)
It was a...
It reminded me of Robin Hood!
And the part where Little John jumped from the rock to the Sherrif Of Nottingham's back.
And then Robin and everyone swung from the trees in a sudden surprise attack.
And they captured the sherrif and all of his goods and they carried him back to their camp in the woods and the sherrif was guest at their dinner and all but he wriggled away and he sounded the call and his men rushed in and the arrows flew-
Peter Rabbit did sort of that kind of thing too...

LUCY: The other people's name was MacGregor.
(counts to 23) Ohh!

LINUS: In examining a work such as Peter Rabbit, it is important that the superficial characteristics of its deceptively simple plot should not be allowed to blind the reader to the more substantial fabric of its deeper motivations. In this report I plan to discuss the sociological implications of family pressures so great as to drive an otherwise moral rabbit to perform acts of thievery which he consciously knew were against the law. I also hope to explore the personality of Mr.MacGregor in his conflicting roles as farmer and humanitarian...
Peter Rabbit is established from the start as a benevolent hero and it is only...

cbclipping.gif

CB: If I start writing now
When I'm not really rested
It could upset my thinking which is no good at all.
I'll get a fresh start tomorrow
And its not due till Wednesday
So I'll have all of Tuesday unless something should happen.
Why does this always happen
I should be outside playing,
Getting fresh air and sunshine,
I work best under pressure and there'll be lots of pressure
If I wait till tomorrow
I should start writing now.
But if I start writing now
When I'm not really rested
It could upset my thinking
Which is
No good at all.

LUCY: The name of the rabbit was Peter.
(She counts to 30)
Yes!

SCHROEDER: Down came the staff on his head- Smash!
And Robin fell like a sack full of lead- Crash!
The sherrif laughed and he left him for dead- Ah!
But he was wrong

LUCY: 35,26,37,38,39,40.

SCHROEDER: Just then an arrow flew in- WHING!
It was a sign for the fight to begin- ZING!
And then it looked like the sherrif would win- Ah!
But not for long.
Away they ran.
Just like rabbits.
Who run a lot
As you can tell
From the story
Of Peter Rabbit
Which this report
Is about.

*(Sally and Snoopy run across, chasing rabbits)

SALLY/SNOOPY: Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits...

CB: How do they expect us to write a book report
Of any quality in just two days

LUCY: (overlapping) There were vegetables in the garden!
Such as carrots and spinach and onions and lettuce
and turnips and parsley and okra and cabbage and string beans
and parsnips tomatoes, potatoes, asparagus cauliflower, rhubarb, and chives.

CB: How can they conspire to make life so miserable and so effectively in so many ways!

LINUS: Not to mention the extreme pressure exerted on him by his deeply rooted rivalry with Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail!

SALLY/SNOOPY: Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits, rabbits...

CB: If I start writing now when I'm not really rested it could upset my thinking which is no good at all- Not good at all! Oh!

First thing after dinner I'll start!

SCHROEDER: The name of the book about which this book report is about is Peter Rabbit Peter Rabbit
All for one ev'ry man does his part-

Oooh!

LINUS: What drove an otherwise moral rabbit to perform acts of thievery? Thievery! Sociological implications Family pressure!

Simple Plot.

LUCY: Peter Rabbit is this stupid book about this stupid rabbit who steals vegetables from other peoples gardens. Gardens! Gardens, gardens... 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80

81,82...

SNOOPY/SALLY: Rabbit Chasing Rabbit Chasing Rabbit Chasing Rabbit Chasing Chasing! Rabbits, Rabbits Chasing, Rabbits!

Find a rabbit do or die!

LUCY: And they were very very very very very very happy to be home,

SCHROEDER/SNOOPY/SALLY: The End.

LUCY: 94,95... The very very very end.

LINUS: Amen!

CB: A book report on Peter Rabbit...

*CB: Just start writing
You can do it!
Nothing to it!
Got to-
Start!

SCHROEDER: Peter Rabbit was a lot
like Robin Hood

My New Philosophy

SALLY: (looking over her homework) Oh yeah! That's what you think!

SCHROEDER: What?

SALLY: That's my new philosophy. Oh yeah! That's what you think!

SCHROEDER: Well, why are you telling me?

SALLY: What?

SCHROEDER: Why are you telling me?

SALLY: "Why are you telling me?" I like it!
That's a god philosophy. "Why are you telling me? Why are you telling me?"
Why are you telling me?
My new philosophy!
The teacher gave a D on last week's homework!
She said, "Miss Sally Brown,
Your grades are going down."
I could have told her-

SCHROEDER: Your new philosophy.

SALLY: My new philosophy.
Miss B?
-I'm she.
Look see.
-A D?
A D.
-Well, why are you telling me?
AND that's my new Philosophy!

SCHROEDER: That's your new philosophy?

SALLY: Why are you telling me?
My new philosophy!

SCHROEDER: That's great, Sally, but I've gotta go practice Chopin's Nocturne in B-Flat minor.

SALLY: No! I like it... No! That's a good philosophy!
No! No! No!

SCHROEDER: That's your new philosophy, huh?

SALLY: Yes! I mean No!
Just like a busy bee- each new philosophy
Can fly from tree to tree and keep me moving
When life's a dizzy maze
On alternating days- I choose a different phrase!

SCHROEDER: Your new philosophy?

SALLY: My new philosophy!

SCHROEDER: Sally! Some philosophies are simple:
"Man does not live by bread alone."
Some philosophies are clear:

SALLY: "Leave your message at the sound of the tone."

BOTH: Some philosophies pick and choose deciding what goes in it.

SCHROEDER: Some take a lifetime!

SALLY: Mine take a minute!

SCHROEDER: But Sally, anything that takes only a minute can't be very lasting. For instance, Beethoven took over two years to complete his brilliant Ninth Symphony.

SALLY: No!

SCHROEDER: I can't stand it! (Exits)

SALLY: I can't stand it! I like it!
Its like a guarantee- my new philosophy!
And things are sure to be a whole lot brighter.
Oh yeah! That's what you think!
Why are you telling me?
No!
I can't stand it!
Now life is free and easy, much more philosophy-zy
With my brand new-
You know someone has said that we should live each day as if it were the last day of our life.

LUCY: AAUUGH! This is the last day! This is it! I only have twenty-four hours left! Help me! Help me! This is the last day! AAUUGH!

SALLY: Clearly some philosophies aren't for all people.
And that's my new philosophy!

T-E-A-M (The Baseball Game)

CB: Gimme a T!

ALL: T!

CB: Gimme an E!

ALL: E!

CB: Gimme an A!

ALL: A!

CB: Gimme an M!

ALL: M!

CB: What've you got?

ALL: TEAM!
There is no team like the best team
which is our team right here.
We will show you we're the best team
in the very little league this year.
And in no time we'll be big time
with the big league baseball stars.
For all we have to do is win just one more game
and the championship is ours!

CB: Dear pen pal...
You'll never guess what happened today at the baseball game.
It's hard to believe what happened today at the baseball game.
I was the manager, Schroeder was catcher and all of the team was the same as always
But somehow or other disaster struck at the baseball game!

(Game begins. Adlibbed encouragement. Crack of the bat and-)

LUCY: I got it!

LINUS: I got it!

SCHROEDER: I got it!

SNOOPY: Woof woof woof!

(Ball falls to the ground)

LUCY: (to CB) I thought you had it.

CB: Three balls, two strikes, the bases were loaded with two men out
I pitched my curve but somehow he hit it a good strong clout
"Lucy" I hollered,"It's coming right to you"- she caught it as easy as pie... then dropped it...
I don't think its good for a team's morale to see their manager cry.
Snoopy helped out by biting a runner and catching the ball in his teeth; Linus caught flies from a third story window by holding his blanket beneath.

Yes, we had fortitude, no one could argue with that!
And one run would win us the game as I came up to bat.

LUCY: All right, Charlie Brown, we're all behind you- sort of. I mean this man can't pitch. He pitches like my grandmother, Charlie Brown. Now all you have to do is bear down, just bear down- and when you get on first- watch for my signals.

OTHERS: Go Charlie Brown, Charlie Brown, Charlie Brown-
There is no team like the best team
which is our team right here.
We will show you we're the best team
in the very little league this year.
And in no time we'll be big time
with the big league baseball stars.
For all we have to do is win just one more game-

LUCY: And the championship is ours!

OTHERS: (echoing) Ours! Ours! Ours!

CB: Two men were on with two outs and me with one strike to go...

OTHERS: One strike... one strike...

CB: Then I saw her- this cute little red-headed girl I know. Firmly I vowed I would win it for her and I shouldered my bat and I swung...

ALL: Oh...

CB: Dear pen pal, I'm told where you live is really quite far. Would you please send directions on how I can get where you are?
Your friend, Charlie Brown.

Glee Club Rehearsal

SCHROEDER: Remember, this is a mood piece. We must paint a picture with music and words. And concentrate! Remember... adagio con brio.

ALL: Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam
where the deer and the antelope play...

LUCY: Give me my pencil.

ALL: Where seldom is heard a discouraging word

LINUS: Not on your life.

ALL: And the skies are not cloudy all day.

SALLY: If you don't tell me what you told Lucy I'm just going to scream!
LUCY: Give me that pencil you blockhead.

ALL: Home Home on the range

LUCY: Give me my pencil!

LINUS: No!

ALL: Where the deer and the antelope play

LINUS: Not until you promise not to tell her...
LUCY: What're you trying to do stifle my freedom of speech?

ALL: Where seldom is heard a discouraging word

LINUS: No promise no pencil.
LUCY: Give me my pencil.

ALL: And the skies are not cloudy all day

SALLY: What pencil? (Sally holds up the pencil)

LINUS: (sees he lost the pencil) No!

ALL: Oh give me a land

LINUS: Give me that pencil!
SALLY: Linus it just isn't fair!

ALL: Where the bright diamond sand-

SCHROEDER: SING!

ALL: Flows leisurely down the stream...

CB: (to Linus) Why did you take Sally's pencil?

LINUS: (Stomping off) AAAUUUGH!

ALL: Where the graceful white swan goes gliding along

SALLY: What did he call me?
LUCY: He said

ALL: Like a maid in a heavenly dream

LUCY: He said you were... an enigma...

SALLY: An enigma?
CB: An enigma?
SNOOPY: An enigma?

ALL: Home Home on the range

SALLY: Boy that makes me... What a terrible thing to call a... What's an enigma? Never mind! (Storms off)

ALL: Where the deer and the antelope play

LUCY: (to CB) What's an enigma?
CB: (to Snoopy) What's an enigma?
SNOOPY: (to nobody) What's an en-?

LUCY: Hey he's still got my pencil! (Exits)

(Charlie Brown slowly slinks away)

SCHROEDER AND SNOOPY: Where seldom is heard a discouraging word...

SCHROEDER: And the skies are not cloudy all day.

(Snoopy finishes the song in a bark and throws a kiss to Schroeder)

Little Known Facts

LUCY: Do you see this tree?
It is a fir tree.
It's called a fir tree because it gives us fur, for coats,
It also gives us wool in the wintertime.

LINUS: I never knew that before, Lucy. That's very interesting.

LUCY: This is an elm tree. It's very little, but it will grow up into a giant tree, an oak. You can tell how old it is by counting its leaves.

LINUS: Gosh, Lucy, that's fascinating.

CB: Now wait a minute, Lucy, I don't mean to interfere, but-

LUCY: And way up there, those fluffy little white things, those are clouds, they make the wind blow.
And way down there, those tiny little black things,
Those are bugs, they make the grass grow.

LINUS: Is that so?

LUCY: That's right. They run around all day long, tugging and tugging at each tiny seedling until it grows into a great tall blade of grass.

LINUS: Boy, that's amazing!

CB: Oh, good grief!

LUCY: And this thing here, it's called a hydrant.
They grow all over, and no one seems to know just how
a little thing like that gives so much water!
D'you see that bird?
It's called an eagle!
But since it's little, it has another name, a sparrow,
and on Christmas and Thanksgiving we eat them!

CB: Lucy, how can you say that? I'm sorry but I can't stand idly by and listen to-

LUCY: And way up there, the little stars and planets,
make the rain that falls in showers.
And when its cold and winter is upon us,
the snow comes up, just like the flowers.

CB: Now, Lucy, I know that's wrong. Snow doesn't come up, it comes down.

LUCY: After it comes up, the wind blows it around so it looks like it's coming down but actually it comes up out of the ground- like grass. It comes up, Charlie Brown, snow comes up.

CB: Oh, good grief!

LINUS: Lucy, why is Charlie Brown banging his head against that tree?

LUCY: To loosen the bark to make the tree grow faster.
Clouds can make the wind blow
Bugs can make the grass grow
So, there you go
These are little known facts that now you know!

SNOOPY: My stomach clock just went off. It's suppertime and Charlie Brown has forgotten to feed me. Here I lie, a withering hollow shell of a dog and there sits my supper dish- empty! But that's all right! He'll remember. When no furry friend comes to greet him after school, then he'll remember. And he'll rush out here to the doghouse but it'll be too late.

CB: Hey, Snoopy. Are you asleep or something? I've been standing here a whole minute with your supper.

SNOOPY: Suppertime? Suppertime?
Behold the brimming bowl of meat and meal
Which is brought forth to ease our hunger.
Behold the flowing flagon moist and sweet
Which has been sent to slake our thirst!

CB: Okay, there's no need for a big production. Just get down off that doghouse and eat.

SNOOPY: Doo doo
doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo
It's suppertime! Yeah, it's suppertime!
Oh, it's sup-sup-suppertime
very best time of day!

It's suppertime- yeah, it's suppertime!
And when suppertime comes, can supper be far away?
Bring on the soup dish, bring on the cup.
Bring on the bacon and fill me up, 'cause it's supper
supper supper suppertime!

(Scats) Suppertime! Doo doo doo doo doo doo!

Brrring on the dog food, bring on the bone,
Bring on the bacon and roll me home, 'cause its supper
Supper supper suppertime
Super- super pepper upper, super-
Super-duper suppertime!

Wintertime's nice with the ice and snow,
Summertime's nice with a place to go,
Bedtime, overtime, half-time too, but they just can't hold a candle to my suppertime! Oh yeah!

Bring on the hamburg- Bring on the bun
Pappy's little puppy loves everyone!
'Cause its supper! Supper Supper Supper
Supper
Super Pepper Upper
Supper Super Duper Suppertime!

CB: Now cut that out! Why can't you eat your meal quietly and calmly like any other normal dog?

SNOOPY: So what's wrong with making mealtime a joyous occasion?

Supper
Supper supper suppertime!
