Lyrics WHEN I HAD MY CHOICE
OF A CAT OR A DOG,
WHY DID I OPT
FOR THE LATTER,
A DOG?
BUT HE WAS DIFF'RENT THEN.
HE WAS DIFF'RENT WHEN
HE WAS, WELL, SMALL.
HE EVEN USED TO COME
WHEN I WOULD CALL,
SNOOPY,
SNOOPY.
HERE, SNOOPY!
SNOOPY.

WHERE DID THAT LITTLE DOG GO?
ONLY A MOMENT AGO,
HE WAS THERE,
JUMPING IN MY ARMS,
EATING FROM MY HAND,
I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
WHERE DID THAT LITTLE DOG GO?
HE'S NOT THE PUPPY
I KNOW.
SOFT AND WARM,
TUGGING AT MY SLEEVE,
BEGGING ME TO PLAY,
WAS IT YESTERDAY?
HE WAS SNOOPY,
LITTLE SNOOPY.
SO DEPENDENT ON ME
FOR SO MUCH OF HIS LAUGHTER,
WHY CAN'T BEFORE
BE JUST LIKE AFTER?
WHAT WAS HIS HURRY TO GROW?
GROW UP AND WORRY ME SO?
IT'S NOT FAIR,
SNOOPY,
DON'T YOU SEE,
GROWING UP TO BE
SOMEONE ELSE
WHO DOESN'T NEED ME!
