Musical Chairs

Lyrics

(Patty (not Peppermint Patty) starts the music)

Hey! It's time for "Musical Chairs", come on, let's go!
Let's set up the chairs, now all in a row
You run around the chairs till the music stops
And ya have to find a seat, now don't get caught
'Cause when the music stops...
(Music stops then starts again and Sally gets left out)
You can't be standin' there
If you wanna be a winner at "Musical Chairs"
Now we take away a chair while you're runnin' around
Don't let the kid in front of you get you down
Just listen to the rhythm now don't miss a beat
'Cause you don't wanna be the only one without a seat
'Cause when the music stops...
(Music stops then starts again and Marcie gets left out)
You can't be standin' there
If you wanna be a winner at "Musical Chairs"
Now every time the music stops
You're gonna end up one chair short
And if you're boo-ga-looin when the music's gone
(Lucy gets left out)
Sorry ya got to move on
(Only Peppermint Patty and Charlie Brown are still in)
Now it's the moment of truth, it's gettin' down to the wire
You're burnin' up inside with musical fire
You hover 'round each corner of that precious seat
Waitin' for the moment you can get off your feet
'Cause when the music stops...
(Music stops then starts again and Charlie Brown gets left out)
You can't be standin' there
If you wanna be a winner
You got to be a winner
If you wanna be a winner at...
"Musical Chairs"!!
Yeah!!
