"Glee Club Rehearsal" is a song from the stage musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and the animated TV special of the same name. It is sung by the entire cast, directed by Schroeder. However, by the end of the song, only Schroeder and Snoopy are left singing. "Glee Club Rehearsal" includes the lyrics to the song "Home on the Range" but with the addition of the Peanuts characters arguing with each other while singing it.

The song was featured in the 1967 Off Broadway, 1968 West End, 1970 U.S. Tour, and 1971 Broadway productions, but was not in the 1967 cast album.

Lyrics

Sally: Do, re, mi, fa, so la, ti, do. Do, ti, la, so, fa, mi, re, do.

Schroeder: That's very good, Sally. Where is everybody? I told them to be here. If we don't rehearse we can't sing at the assembly tomorrow. Charlie Brown! Linus! Lucy!

Lucy: Give me back my pencil, you blockhead!!

Linus: No! Not until you give me back my crayons!

Lucy: That is my best pencil! If you don't give me back my pencil, I'll tell Sally what you said about her!

Schroeder: Stop that! We gotta rehearse! You're late!

Sally: What did you say about me, Linus?

Lucy: He said --

Linus: Lucy. . .

Schroeder: Stop that!

Charlie Brown: Sorry, I'm late. But Snoopy needed --

Schroeder: There is no time to be sorry!

Sally: What did he say?

Lucy: He said that...

Schroeder: Quiet!! Now remember this is a mood piece, we must paint a picture with music and words... and concentrate! Remember. . . adagio con brio!

All: Oh give me a home
Where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the antelope play. . .

Lucy: Give me my pencil

All: Where seldom is heard a discouraging word

Linus: Not on your life

All: And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Sally: If you don't tell me what you told Lucy I'm just going to scream

Lucy: Give me my pencil you blockhead!!

All: Home, home on the range.

Lucy: Give me my pencil

Linus: No!

All: Where the deer and the antelope play.
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word

Linus: Not until you promise not to tell her

Lucy: What are you trying to do? Stifle my freedom of speech?

All: Where seldom is heard

Lucy: Give me my pencil!

All: A discouraging word

Linus: No promise no pencil!

All: And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Sally: What pencil?

Linus: No! Give me that pencil!!

All: Oh, give me a land where the bright diamond sand........

Sally: Linus, it just isn't fair!

All: Flows leisurely down the stream...........

Charlie Brown (to Linus): Why did you take Sally's pencil?

Linus: Aargh! (He storms off)

All: There the graceful, white swan goes gliding along.........

Sally (to Lucy): What did he call me?

All: Like a maid in a heavenly dream.

Lucy: He said, he said you were... an enigma!

Sally: An enigma?

Lucy: Hey !! He's still got my pencil! (Now she storms off)

Charlie Brown and Schroeder: Where seldom is heard a discouraging word...
(Seeing he's the only one left, Charlie Brown sneaks away)

Schroeder: And the skies are not cloudy all day!
(He turns around and sees only Snoopy is still there)

Snoopy: Arrro ooo ooo . . .

(Schroeder and Snoopy sing together and shake hands at the end of the song)
