Little Known Facts

LUCY:
DO YOU SEE THIS TREE?
IT IS A FIR TREE.
IT'S CALLED A FIR TREE BECAUSE IT GIVES US FUR FOR COATS.
IT ALSO GIVES US WOOL IN THE WINTER TIME.

LINUS:
I never knew that before, Lucy. That's very interesting.

LUCY:
THIS IS AN ELM TREE.
IT'S VERY LITTLE
BUT IT WILL GROW UP INTO A GIANT TREE...
AN OAK.
YOU CAN TELL HOW OLD IT IS BY COUNTING IT'S LEAVES.

LINUS
Gosh Lucy, that's fascinating.

CHARLIE BROWN:
Now wait a minute Lucy! I don't mean to interfere, but...

LUCY:
AND WAY UP THERE THOSE FLUFFY LITTLE WHITE THINGS,
THOSE ARE CLOUDS,
THEY MAKE THE WIND BLOW.
AND WAY DOWN THERE,
THOSE TINY LITTLE BLACK THINGS...
THOSE ARE BUGS
THEY MAKE THE GRASS GROW.

LINUS:
Is that so?

LUCY:
That's right! They run around all day,
tugging and tugging on each tiny seedling until it grows into a great tall blade of grass!

LINUS:
Boy, that's amazing!

CHARLIE BROWN:
Oh, good grief!

LUCY:
AND THIS THING HERE,
IT'S CALLED A HYDRANT.
THEY GROW ALL OVER
AND NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW
JUST HOW A LITTLE THING LIKE THAT
GETS SO MUCH WATER.
SEE THAT BIRD?
IT'S CALLED AN EAGLE.
SINCE IT'S LITTLE IT HAS ANOTHER NAME,
A SPARROW.
AND ON CHRISTMAS AND THANKSGIVING
WE EAT THEM.

CHARLIE BROWN:
Lucy, how could you say that? I'm sorry but I can't stand idly by and listen to...

LUCY:
AND WAY UP THERE,
THE LITTLE STARS AND PLANETS
MAKE THE RAIN THAT OFTEN SHOWERS.
AND WHEN IT'S COLD AND WINTER IS UPON US
THE SNOW COMES UP!
JUST LIKE THE FLOWERS.

CHARLIE BROWN:
Now Lucy, I know that's wrong! Snow doesn't come up, it comes down!!

LUCY:
After it comes up, the wind blows it around so it looks like it's coming down,
but actually it comes up out of the ground, just like grass. It comes up,
Charlie Brown, snow comes up!

CHARLIE BROWN:
Oh, Good Grief! (He exits, from off stage there is a hollow thumping sound.)

LINUS:
Why is Charlie Brown banging his head against that tree?

LUCY:
To loosen the bark to make the tree grow faster!

CLOUDS CAN MAKE THE WIND BLOW
BUGS CAN MAKE THE GRASS GROW
SO, THERE YOU GO
THESE ARE LITTLE KNOWN FACTS
THAT NOW
YOU KNOW!
