"Suppertime"

SUPPERTIME Lyrics by Clark Gesner
SNOOPY
My stomach clock just went off. It's suppertime and Charlie
Brown has forgotten to feed me. Here I lie, a withering hollow
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. There will
be nothing left but the dried carcass of the former friend
who used to love to run and play so happily with him.
Nothing left but the bleached puppy bones of...

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

SNOOPY
Suppetime? 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.

CHARLIE BROWN
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.
(he whistles and scats)

Suppertime

Br-r-ing on the dog food, bring on the bone.
Bring on the barrel and roll me home,
'Cause it's supper
Supper, supper, supper,
Supper-
Super pepper-upper,
Supper-
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 the just can't hold a candle to
My suppertime.
Oh, yeah!

Hello, home listeners! How are you?
Br-r-ing on the hamburg, bring on the bun
Pappy's little puppy loves ev'ryone.
'Cause it's supper
Supper, supper, supper,
Supper
Super pepper-upper,
Supper,
Super duper suppertime!

CHORUS SNOOPY(ad libs)
Suppertime! Ooh!
Suppertime! Ooh, yeah!
Suppertime! C'mon, bring on the meat
Suppertime! It's time to eat!
Suppertime! Oh!
Suppertime! Oh!
Suppertime! Oh!
Suppertime! Suppertime!

Suppertime! Bring on the food-
Suppertime! Bring on the hamburg-
Suppertime! Bring on the hot dog-
Suppertime! Bring on the doctor-
Suppertime! Gimme food, gimme water, gimme something to chew
Gimme food, gimme water, gimme something to do!

CHARLIE BROWN
NOW CUT THAT OUT! Whcy can't you eat your meal calmly
and quietly like and other normal dog?

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

Supper
Supper supper suppertime!
