Song lyrics:

[CHARLIE BROWN]
Oh, Lucy. Im so depressed. I dont know what to do
[LUCY]
I think what you need most of all, Charlie Brown, is to come
Right out and admit all of the things that are wrong with you
[CHARLIE BROWN]
All right, Ill try
Im not very handsome or clever, or lucid
Ive always been stupid at spelling and numbers
Ive never been much playing football ir baseball
Or stickball, or checkers, or marbles, or ping-pong
Im usually awful at parties and dances
I stand like a stick or I cough, or I laugh
Or I dont 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, uttlerly
Blah as me
[LUCY]
Well, thats ok for a starter
[CHARLIE BROWN]
A starter?
[LUCY]
Certainly. You dont think that mentioning these few superficial
Failings is going to do you any good, do you? Why, Charlie Brown
You really have to delve
Youre stupid, self-centered and moody
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Im moody
[LUCY]
Youre terribly dull to be with
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Yes I am
And nobody likes me
Not Frieda, or Shermy, or Linus, or Schroeder-
[LUCY]
Or Lucy
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Or Lucy


[LUCY]
Or Snoopy
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Or Sn-
Wait a minute. Snoopy likes me
[LUCY]
He only pretends to like you becaus eyou feed him
That doesnt count
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Or Snoopy
Oh why- was I born just to be
One small person as thoroughly, totally, utterly-
[LUCY]
Wait!
Youre not very much of a person...
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Thats certain
[LUCY]
And yet theres a reason for hope
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Theres 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
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Im me!
[LUCY]
Yes- its amazingly true
For whatever its worth, Charlie Brown
Youre you
[CHARLIE BROWN]
Gosh, Lucy you know something. Im beginning to feel better already
Youre a true friend, Lucy, a true friend
[LUCY]
Thatll be five cents, please
