Description - Too Many Songs by Tom Lehrer

The subversive songs of mathematics teacher 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 'Tomfoolery', the stage revue based on his ever-trenchant observation of the American scene, spawned in London in 1980 and which has since spread to many other Lehrer-speaking countries. This new songbook, with old favourites unavailable for years as well as never-before-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?, Wernher Von Braun, We Will All Go Together When We Go, I Got It from Agnes, Silent E and The Vatican Rag.
