Champion Charlie Brown.
That has a lovely ring,
Something to make the fourth-column headlines,
Something the kids can sing.
Champion Charlie Brown (Esquire),
Setting the whole wide world (on fire).
Fly all the flags, break out the confetti,
Cause all the bells to sound,
He's gotta be most definitely,
Champion Charlie Brown.
Champion Charlie Brown,
He's got to be the best.
Top of the heap when it comes to spelling,
Better than all the rest.
Champion Charlie Brown (You did it!)
If you're a blockhead, boy (You did it!)
It must be something not to be nothing,
When you've been on the ground.
Once a beginner, now he's a winner,
Champion Charlie Brown.
