Peppermint Patty: Poor, sweet baby,
Poor, poor, sweet, sweet baby.
Show me where it hurts, I'll tell you how to make it well,
I've won lots of loving cups for playing show and tell.
My poor, sweet baby,
Poor, poor, sweet, sweet baby.
When you neeed a shoulder, come and try mine on for size,
I'm real good at holding hands and,
Really great at drying eyes.
Just try me,
Cry me all your tears.
Why deny me,
The pleasure of dryin' 'em?
Stoppin' you cryin' 'em?
Don't despair for,
Smiles are what I'm there for.
You won't have to call on me, I'll always be right near,
Near to kiss and cuddle you and,
Whisper in your little ear,
Don't fear.
There, there, baby.
Poor, sweet baby,
Poor, sweet baby,
Mama's here.
Like that, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: Yeah, just like that.
Peppermint Patty:  Forget it, Chuck... It'll never happen!
