"Edgar Allan Poe" from the 1988 animated TV version of Snoopy!!! The Musical with added subtitles.

"Edgar Allan Poe" from "Snoopy! The Musical"02:49

"Edgar Allan Poe" from "Snoopy! The Musical"

"Edgar Allan Poe" from the album of the 1983 West End production of Snoopy!!! The Musical.

"Edgar Allen Poe" is a song from the stage show Snoopy!!! The Musical and the animated TV special of the same name. In the song, the children hope that their teacher will not call on them to ask them questions about the famous American poet, novelist and short story writer Edgar Allan Poe. The information which Linus gives about the writer's life in the song is correct, whereas the information which Charlie Brown gives is comically inaccurate.

Lyrics 

Note:The following song lyrics are those from the 1983 London West End production of the musical. Those from the 1988 animated TV special are slightly different.
