Description

The subversive songs of Tom Lehrer, the sardonic piano-wielding fugitive from Harvard, have corrupted generations of Americans since he first began recording and performing in the 1950s. His uniquely depraved wit has been forced again on an unsuspecting public' via Tom Foolery, the stage revue based on his ever-trenchant observation of the American scene. This new songbook, with old favorites unavailable for years as well as never-published songs, is the most comprehensive ever assembled. It contains the words, tunes, piano accompaniments, and guitar chords for these thirty-four classics: The Irish Ballad Fight Fiercely, Harvard! Be Prepared The Old Dope Peddler The Wild West Is Where I Want to Be I Wanna Go Back to Dixie Lobachevsky The Hunting Song I Hold Your Hand in Mine My Home Town L-Y When You Are Old and Gray The Wiener Schnitzel Waltz Poisoning Pigeons in the Park A Christmas Carol Bright College Days In Old Mexico She's My Girl The Elements The Masochism Tango National Brotherhood Week MLF Lullaby The Folk Song Army Smut Send the Marines New Math Pollution So Long, Mom Who's Next? Wemher Von Braun We Will All Go Together When We Go I Got It from Agnes Silent E The Vatican Rag

Author Biography

Thomas Lehrer is an American singer-songwriter, satirist, pianist, and mathematician. Although best known for the pithy, humorous songs he recorded in the 1950s and 1960s, Lehrerdiscontinued his musical career in the early 1970s. His cult following led to a hit Londonrevival ofhis music called Tom Foolery in the early 1980s and his songs were re-released digitally as recently as 2010. Lehrer's academic career spannedfifty years, teaching at MIT, Harvard, Wellesley, and the University of California (Santa Clara). Although he also taught political science and liberal arts, his main focus was on mathematics, from which he retired in 2001. Lehrer has also lectured on mathematics and musical theater."
