Tom Lehrer is Smug

how has this joke not been done before?

The Fung Wah bus has a ready-made advertising campaign, you know. The jingle can be this absolutely fabulous Dylan tune:
If your memory serves you well
We were going to meet again and wait
So I'm going to unpack all my things
And sit before it gets too late

No man alive will come to you
With another tale to tell
But you know that we shall meet again
If your memory serves you well

This wheel's on fire,
Rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode
Man, when I get home I'm so hitting up $ONLINE_MUSIC_FINDY_THINGY and grabbing all the versions I can find, from Dylan's tapes to Siouxsie to Adrian Edmonson.

Ask me sometime about my binge yesterday where I tried to get as many copies of The Hawaiian War Chant as I could, and ended up with this incredibly awesome Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen version.
