Lyrics

Ba bada ba ba ba boom boom.
Ba bada ba ba ba boom boom.
Ba bada ba ba bada ba ba bada ba ba.
You're a good man, Charlie Brown,
You're the kind of the reminder we need.
You have humility, nobility
And a sense of honor that is very rare indeed
You're a good man, Charlie Brown,
And we know you will go very far.
Yes it's hard to believe,
Almost frightening to conceive
What a good man
You are.
You are kind
You are kind to all the animals and every little bird.
With a heart of gold,
You believe what you're told...
Every single solitary word
You bravely face adversity,
You're cheerful through the day.
You're thoughtful, brave and courteous
And you also have some faults, but for the moment, let's just say
That you're a good man, Charlie Brown
You're a prince and a prince could be king
With a heart such as yours you can open any doors
You can go out and do anything!
You could be king Charlie Brown!
You could be king!
Lucy (spoken): If only you weren't so wishy washy!

Opening You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown

Opening to the album of the 1999 Broadway production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

Charlie Brown: Everybody says to me,
Others: You're a good man, Charlie Brown.
Charlie Brown: Every voice in harmony,
Others: You're a good man, Charlie Brown.
Charlie Brown: All I need is one more try,
Gotta get that kite to fly,
And I'm not the kind of guy,
Who gives up easily.
Wonder why they stop to say,
Others:You're a good man, Charlie Brown,
Charlie Brown: Never liked me, anyway,
Others: You're a good man, Charlie Brown,
Charlie Brown: Trying not to rock the boat,
Not to make a scene.
A good man? Yes,
But I confess,
I don't know what they mean.
I wanna rise like I should,
And do everything right,
But I lie awake at night...
With questions in my ear.
I want to join the dance,
Others: Oooh,
Never sleep,
Oooh,
Loud and deep,
Oooh,
Take the leap.
Charlie Brown: But the answer isn't clear.
Than I hear,
Others: Charlie Brown... Charlie Brown...
You're a good man, Charlie Brown,
You're a good man, Charlie Brown,
Schroeder: Get on the bus.
lucy: Get on the bus.
Linus: Go ahead, get on the bus, Charlie Brown!
Sally: Don't wanna be late for school!
Others: That's right!
Charlie Brown: Don't wanna be late!
All: Don't wanna be late for school!
Snoopy: Woof!
Others: You're a good man,
Charlie Brown,
You're the kind,
Of reminder we need.
You have humility,
Nobility,
And a sense of honor,
That is very rare indeed.
Charlie Brown: There they go again,
Don't know what they mean.
I'm not good,
I'm not bad,
I'm somewhere,
In between.
Snoopy: Woof!
Others: You're a good man,
Charlie Brown.
Charlie Brown: I don't understand,
Others: You're a prince,
And a prince could be king,
With a heart such as yours,
You could open any doors,
You could go out;
And do anything.
You could be king, Charlie Brown,
You could be king!
Charlie Brown: "Nothing lasts forever",
Others: You could be king,
Charlie Brown: "All good things must end",
I've memorized,
That phrase by heart.
So tell me,
I need to know it...</span>
Others: Believe it,
And you were born for this part,
You're a good man,
Charlie Brown!</span>
Charlie Brown: When do the,
Good things start?
Lucy/Schroeder: You're a good man,</span>
Charlie Brown.
Linus/Sally: Bravely facing,
Adversity,
You can open up.
Snoopy: Oh, You're a good man,
Lucy/Schroeder: You're a good man,
Charlie Brown.
All: You're a good man,
Charlie Brown!
