An Afternoon Wasted with Tom Lehrer

Ah, not wasted at all. For anyone who hasn't ever heard one of Lehrer's albums, check some out today. Musical humor from the 50s-60s that is as relevant (ok, more) now than ever.

Like the MLF Tango -
Why shouldn't they have nuclear warheads?
England says no, but they all are soreheads.
I say a bygone should be a bygone,
Let's make peace the way we did in Stanleyville and Saigon.

Or when George Murphy (an old actor) won a Senatorship in California -
The movies that you've seen
On your television screen
Show his legislative talents at a glance

Hmmm, sound like anybody we know today?

So go out and dance the machism tango or poison some pigeons in the park and have a good weekend with Tom.

what about the vatican rag, especially for THIS vatican??

First you get down on your knees, fiddle with your rosaries, bow your head with great respect and...genuflect, genuflect, genuflect!

Do whatever steps you want if
you have cleared them with the pontiff
everyone say his own kyrie eleison
doing the vatican, ohwhatsthemattican,
doing the vatican rag...
