Tom Lehrer news (and it's good!)

Tom is alive and well. This website has lyrics to many of his songs and a statement from Lehrer:

I, Tom Lehrer, and the Tom Lehrer Trust 2000, hereby grant the following permission:

It makes a fellow proud to be a Lehrer fan.

Ya gotta love Tom Lehrer. Funny AND classy.

Lyrics only, at least for now:

This permission applies only to the lyrics on this website. Most of the music written by Tom Lehrer will be added gradually later with further disclaimers


First time I’ve seen this version:

I assume he’s still of a mind to declare that satire, which died when Kissinger won the Nobel Peace Prize, did not spring back to life after Trump was nominated for his.

Short, but catchy!

Hundreds of people are nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize each year.

Shouldn’t Tom Lehrer be nominated for the literature prize?

Among past nominees: Hitler, Stalin, Putin and Crips founder Stanley “Tookie” Williams (nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times, executed for murders committed during two robberies.
