No more comments from the Peanuts Gallery
old Charlie Brown is blue
Cause his little red-haired Girl has dyed
now her ink black roots show through
~
poor Snoopy's finally been shot down
that Red Baron is an ace
and we'll miss the little boy beneath
the dirt on Pigpen's face
~
Scchroeder's played his final tune
it's called, "Beethoven's Last
Rerun vanished on his Mom's bike
into the distant past
~
Peppermint Patty once again
is just a restaurant treat
It helps dilute the bitter taste
that fate has made us eat
~
Lucy's been left speechless!!
once a shrink, now she's been shrunk
and dear Linus left his blanket
insecurely, in a trunk
~
The Great Pumpkin's just been revealed
as another dream that's squash
while the comic strip where Chuck's gang played
sports a new coat of whitewash
~
Woodstock was snatched right from mid-air
by a sneaky cat, named "Scan"
what that cat...Scan has uncovered
broke the hearts of every fan
~
Little Sally's smile is crooked now
Happiness has been retired
but you are a good man, Charles Schultz
and you leave us all inspired
~
Sure...The Peanuts gang will have a place
in history they'll survive
But there are some fun things we can do
to keep thier memories alive!
~
Let's go fly a kite, but just make sure, it's eaten by a tree
Let's all teach our dogs to dance, and share a Peppermint Patty
Let's learn to play piano, then belt out, "Lucy in the sky."
let's all feed the birds, and maybe someday
Woodstock will fly by
~
let's make friends with folks like Franklin
leaving hatred far behind us
then we all can sleep securely
'neath our blankets, Just like Linus
~
Let us Sally forth, and Rerun
how life was when we were small
Finding happiness is easy
it is just beyond that wall
~
It's a wall made up of Blockheads
it's been standing now for ages
break it down with love, and laughter
"Let's go back to funny pages!!"
