Original song on YouTube

In my mind I’m goin’ to marry Linus
It’s from he the sun shines
Sucking thumbs, it’s his sideline
He could suck mine, I’d be resigned
For he’s my perfect find
Yes, I’m goin’ to marry Linus (in my mind)

Sally Brown - the chosen one
It’s the ‘cutest thing’ for who I’m pinin’
Watch don’t botch it, or look dumb…
The one for me he is, there’s no denyin’
And I’m goin’ to marry Linus (in my mind)

There ain’t no doubt - it’s this girl’s find
That he’s the wisest thing around
Philosophic is his mind
He’s the babe that I admire, I’m sighing
And I’m goin’ to marry Linus now, sometime

Ask me why I’m goin’ to marry Linus?
Schroeder seems dis-inclined
Pig Pen’s dust - steals in my eyes
Franklin’s come-on’s I’ve declined
Ignored Sherm by design...
Yes, I’m goin’ to marry Linus (in my mind)

Parked in pumpkin patch last night
I think of my great crush - how he’s my calling
Sucked his thumb - held blanket tight
Heard that mighty pumpkin say I’m going, going
I’m goin’ to marry Linus, come the time

Melancholy dosed, my love in vain is abounding
Still I won’t give up my sweet babboo
And it seems I’ll have to go rub out Miss Othmar
Hope she forgives me
Won’t give up - I’m goin’ to marry Linus (in his prime)

So, you’ll find I’m goin’ to marry Linus
Man, cos he’s a fine wine
Taste, which leaves me on cloud nine
Baby, I’d love our lives entwined
It’s got me so inclined
Yes, I’m goin’ to marry Linus (in good time!)
Goin’ to marry Linus (in good time!)
Only marry Linus (in my mind...)

Yes. James puts both of US to sleep as well!

No matter how philosophic and fine-wine-like he is, M and P, I hope Linus doesn't read stanza 4 or he'll find out just how far down the wishlist he really was. Even behind Pigpen FFS! She's a bit like the bachelorette running out of options by episode 12. The title sub alone is worth the 555 - keep em coming guys!

Hopefully "Boring Baby James" won't demand restitution for this love song.

"Carolina" and 'marry Linus" ... In retrospect, just so obvious. If it had been a snake, it would have bitten me. How could I have missed it. (lol) .......... In actuality you just planted the seed in my brain for my own Peanuts parody

Great Halloween parody! Wish you could of written it to an Alice Cooper song and join us in this round of Amiright Reunion but it’s nice to see your return either way.

So your Halloween song this year is about a stalking woman hellbent on future marriage - OK, you win hands down for most scary!
