Tom Lehrer

Tom Lehrer's, "My Home Town"
Better Lyrics:
[I originally created the lyric in a singing class in college at the request of the instructor] That fellow was no fool, who taught the golden rule,
And neither was our kindly Parson Brown;
They shocked the congregation when they tied the knot in My Home Town!
Original Lyrics:
That fellow was no fool... ...Parson Brown;
[Lehrer left this line blank 'for several reasons']
In My Home Town!
