The Lyrics

Apparently Coldplay recently did a song about Charlie Brown. Well... I heard that song and all I could say was "Good Grief!" and maybe "Ugh!!!" because it had nothing to do with this beloved character. Instead it was a bunch of nonsensical poetic junk (like a lot of their other songs). So I felt like they owed him a true proper tribute. Thus this was born!
I run and then I get flipped
From under me the football is ripped
Baseball, I’m pitching with pride
Until I’m whacked and my clothes I’ll find
“Good grief” you’ll hear me moan
Got this Christmas tree that’s bare as a bone
Each day I’m feeling like slime
I can’t be Joe Cool like my beagle canine

Got rocks on Halloween night
Cut holes in this sheet but I’m not too bright
Linus grips to his blankee
Knows the Great Pumpkin comes on All Hallows Eve
Nickel psychiatry stand
A blockhead can whine and be scammed
My dog hangs out with Woodstock
A small yellow bird from a great big flock

I’ll groan “Ugh” and I will frown
Cause I look like such a clown
To all these kids I’m Good Ol’ Charlie Brown
The tree just ate my kite again
Snoopy’s sleeping on top his dog house
If he could see me then he would just laugh

Snoopy caused Lucy’s shrill whine
“Yick! I got dog germs! Get some Iodine!”
Little redhead’s the girl I love
Peppermint Patty likes her pal “Chuck”
“Hey Sir” says that chick Marcie
That title just makes her aggrieved
Schroeder rocks those ivory keys
His love is Beethoven, Sorry Lucy!

I’m annoyed because my hound’s
The Flying Ace who is renowned
While I’m stuck being stinkin’ Charlie Brown
Kid famous for his big bald head
I’m the laughingstock of this whole town
Even worse than the dust-cloud Pig-Pen
Yeah, So much worse than that trashcan Pig-Pen

All adults sound like a trumpet
Still we know what they said
This life we made without parents

(Snoopy: “Whaaaaaaaaa!!!!!”)

You’ll all keep laughing while we’re still around
Though sadly Charles Shultz is not
They’ll all keep mocking me, I’m Charlie Brown
When they dealt out the good luck I got squat
That’s right you heard me: “I just got a rock”

Did Coldplay by any chance desecrate CB on Halloween? Just a thought from my Peanuts brain...

Poor Charlie...spirited parody

A tour de force of comic strip nostalgia.

A sincere parody.

Here's $5.55 to get some psychiatric help from Lucy (she's raised her rate)!!!

(SOTM) Good grief! I don't dig Coldplay (how did they get away with "Viva La Vida" and not get a nasty letter from A-Ha for plagiarizing "Take on Me?"), but I like Charlie Brown. I think you did Chuck justice. 555

(SOTM) I like some of Coldplay's stuff, but didn't here the song about CB. I'm a big fan of those Peanuts! This kind of remids me of the play "Dog Sees God" which is loosely based of the Peanuts (you should check it out. I think you'd like it.) Way to defend CB's honor! 555 Good Griefs for you!

Lots of great references to the comic and the cartoons in here, Matt. I'm happy you got the rock, the kite, the mu

Never been the biggest Peanuts fan...but plenty of good references in this one that went alon with the original song pretty well. Nice work

... to continue... the Great Pumpkin, the nickel stand, Christmas and Pig Pen. I always liked how no one really judged Pig Pen or excluded him for being filthy, or Linus for having his blankey well into his twenties.

(SOTM) Pacing was a bit spotty here and there, but otherwise great tribute to a classic comic. Wish I knew how to pronounce Schulz. 555!

Fun tribute, would be a good candidate for a clip video from the Peanuts cartoons
