Beethoven Day [SCHROEDER]
Call the principal
And hand him the news
We've got a holiday
That he can't refuse
A day of harmony,
A day of music:
Beethoven's birthday!

[SALLY]
Beethoven Day?

[SCHROEDER]
A reverential mission

[LINUS]
Beethoven Day?

[SCHROEDER]
The hope of each musician
No more am I the only guy
To stand up and say:

Hooray, Beethoven,
Hooray!

[CHARLIE BROWN]
Beethoven Day?

[LINUS]
Yes. As in Ludwig van Beethoven, composer.
Born 1770, died 1827. The eldest of three sons,
Ludwig's mother was the daughter of the chief overseer
of the kitchen...

[LUCY]
Whatever... Schroeder, I just want you to know that
I'm on your side. I want to help, publicity-wise,
with Beethoven's Birthday.

[SCHROEDER]
Thank you for your support, but I just don't
want to see Beethoven's birthday commercialized.

[LUCY]
Commercialized?

[SCHROEDER]
Yes. The next thing you know they'll be selling
Beethoven sweatshirts.

[SNOOPY (wearing a Beethoven sweatshirt)]
Beethoven Day.

[SCHROEDER]
If you're wondering
"Now, how do we start?"
Just blow the music
Til you know it by heart!
We're gonna celebrate
We'll throw a party
Beethoven's Birthday!

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day!

[SCHROEDER]
And when you say the title...

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day!

[SCHROEDER]
You hear a great recital
The right of every boy and girl
To stand up and say:

[OTHERS]
Hooray, Beethoven,
Hooray!

[SCHROEDER]
Beethoven Day

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day
Beethoven Day

[SCHROEDER]

[OTHERS]

[SCHROEDER]
Beethoven Day

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day

[SCHROEDER]
Beethoven Day

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day

[SCHROEDER]
Beethoven Day- hey, hey, hey!

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day!

[SCHROEDER]
A philharmonic rumble

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day!

[SCHROEDER]
A polyphonic jumble
A humble dedication as we
Stand up and say:

[ALL]
Hooray, Beethoven,
Hooray!

[LUCY]
I got it! We'll demand full-Page ads in every newspaper!

[LINUS]
We'll start a chain or Beethoven superstores!

[SALLY]
We'll build a Beethoven theme park!

[CHARLIE BROWN]
We could have a bake sale!

[SCHROEDER]
Wait! That's too commercial!

Let's imagine it.
That glorious hour
Filled with emotion
Yet inspired with power
When we all honor
The man we adore
On the day we place
The newest face
On Mount Rushmore!

[OTHERS]
Mount Rushmore.
Beethoven Day!

[SCHROEDER]
A moment of reflection

[OTHERS]
Beethoven Day!

[SCHROEDER]
A classical injection!
So facing this direction
We begin it today
A musical collection
Everybody can play
The right of every boy and girl
To stand up and say:

Hooray,
Beethoven!

Hooray!

[OTHERS]
Beethoven hooray!

It's Beethoven Day

A time for celebrating
Beethoven way
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la

[ALL]
Hooray!
