This is a medley of World War I era songs as arranged and performed by Vince Guaraldi on the animated special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Here are the songs in order of appearance:

It's a Long Way to Tipperary
There's a Long, Long Trail A-Winding
Pack Up Your Troubles
Roses of Picardy

When I did some research I was pleased to find that these are authentic songs from that era, as Snoopy is supposed to a World War I flying ace in this scene. His reaction to the songs as they are played is appropriate, according to the sentiment of the particular lyrics.

The lyrics, historical information, and streaming period recordings of the original songs are available at FirstWorldWar.com:

I have followed the notes of Vince Guaraldi's arrangement as best as I could. In the animated special the medley fades out part way through Roses of Picardy so I have provided a conclusion stylistically consistent with what Vince had done to that point.
