Tom Lehrer

It has come to my attention that there are those of the younger generation who have not heard of Tom Lehrer.
 I find this news very distressing.

I would not want my fellow Americans to miss out on the messages brought to us in song by this once popular troubador of the 1950s and 60s.
So I've decided to do something about it.

This here song, 'National Brotherhood Week,' has long been a favorite of mine, for I find it very meaningful as well as funny as hell. I could say the same for nearly all of his songs, which are as relevent to society today as they were back then.

I also like 'Vatican Rag,'
'Poisoning Pigeons in the Park,'
and 'Pollution.'

You will find all of these songs and more on YouTube.
So come on all you young whippersnappers, and see what you've been missing!
