a little music for ya, the Vatican Rag by Tom Lehrer


  1. Used to hear that alot on the "Dr. Demento" show in 1974. Dr. P are you a devotee of Dr. Demento?

  2. Tom Lehrer has been a favorite of mine since high school. My dad had absolutely no taste for or appreciation of music, but he was a huge Tom Lehrer fan too. I used to sing the Werner Von Braun song and the MLF lullaby to my infant son. These are all-time classics.

    "Gather 'round while I tell you of Werner Von Braun
    A man whose allegiance is ruled by expedience
    Call him a Nazi, he won't even frown
    "Ah Nazi, Shmatzi" says Werner Von Braun.

  3. Anyone who'd sing about Von Braun to his kids is allright in my book!

    My father never sang to me, and only took me out to go to the gun range to shoot his guns with him. Is it any wonder I turned out this way?

    A diagnosis please?
