"Let Me Be Surprised" is a song from the first All Dogs Go To Heaven film. It is sung by Charlie and a then-unnamed Annabelle when Charlie first goes to Heaven. In it, when Charlie finds out he was killed by Carface, he swears revenge, and vows to return to earth to get it.


Charlie: Where am I?

Annabelle: This is the Great Hall of Judgement.

Charlie: Judgement?!

Annabelle: Oh, not to worry, Charlie. You'll go to Heaven. All dogs go to Heaven because, unlike people, dogs are naturally good, and loyal, and kind.

Charlie: Ah, yeah, that's true.

Annabelle: Welcome to doing whatever you wish!

Charlie: Ah, this is really a lovely place you got here.

Annabelle: Eating whenever you please!

Follow me.

Charlie: To a constant different climate, we keep it 73 degrees.

We're still in Fahrenheit here.

Charlie: That's fine with me.

Annabelle: Welcome to no more rat race!

Charlie: Oh boy.

Annabelle: To order and common-stead!

Charlie: Ah, great.

Annabelle: being dead!

Charlie: What?!

You mean I'm, I'm-

Annabelle: Stone-cold, I'm afraid.

Charlie: I can't believe it! I've been murdered!

Annabelle: I'm having trouble finding any goodness or loyalty here. But, let me see...

Charlie: He killed me!

Annabelle: I beg your pardon?

Charlie: There's a mistake been made here!

I don't wanna die! (Huh!)

You got the wrong guy!

I was double-crossed by a dirty rat. Actually, this rat was a dog, but his car ran me down. I just blew out of jail. I just got back to town. Hey! This is hard to explain. May I speak to your superior? 'Cause I don't wanna die!

Annabelle: Welcome to doing whatever you wish!

Charlie: You got the wrong guy!

Annabelle: Laughing and singing all day!

Charlie: Hey! Listen! My time's not up yet!

Annabelle: Oh, it is. There's no mistake about that. We know everything.

Charlie: Murdered in the prime of my life! (Damn! That Carface, I'll kill 'em!)

Hey, this must be the watch department, ah?

Annabelle: You may call it that. See, this watch is your life...and it stopped.

Charlie: Well, can't you just wind it up or something?

Annabelle: And send you back? Oh, no, no, no, no! No one's ever allowed to go back. Just put your paw right here.

Charlie: What's that for?

Annabelle: For a book of records. You see, everything about you that was, or will be, is right here.

Charlie: Oh, isn't that wonderful? I love it here. You mean there's no surprises or anything?

Annabelle: Oh, no, no, no. We know everything.

Charlie: Oh, that's just lovely. The clouds, the grass, the air.

Annabelle: Heaven is a wonderful place.

Charlie: Yeah. No surprises, huh?

Say, would you like to dance?

You mean if I'm waiting for a inside straight up here, I'd know in advance whether I filled it?

Annabelle: We know how it all turns out.

Charlie: You must've studied dancing. You have natural rhythm. Unusual, for a whippet.

Annabelle: Oh! I'm getting dizzy!

Charlie: Everything is so lovely here. So planned, so ordered...and that's what driving me crazy.

I need Brazil

The throb, the thrill

I've never been there, but someday I will!

Adventure and danger, love from a stranger

Let me be surprised!

Today there's sun; they said there'd be snow

When all's said and done

It's fun not to know!

What keeps my heart humming, is guessing what's coming

Let me be surprised!

Oh! Ain't it great

Annabelle: (Ain't it great?)

Charlie: When fate makes you wait?

The world seems mirthless

And you feel worthless

Then suddenly,

There's a big bone on your plate!

Annabelle: Oh, Charlie, please remember

Down there's a world of used cars,

And singles' bars,

Broken dreams,

And out-of-reach stars!

Charlie: But, it isn't over

Not for this Rover

I don't like to steal (Ha, ha!)

But I don't buy this deal

In 'bout 3 seconds, she'll have realized (Ha, ha!)

And she's gonna be...

Annabelle: Charlie, what are you doing?

Charlie: Wait'll you see!

Annabelle: What's that you have behind your back?

Charlie: She's gonna be...

Annabelle: Charlie, don't wind that watch!

Charlie: Surprised!

Annabelle: Charlie!
