about this book

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 Tomfoolery, 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:

Fight Fiercely, Harvard!
Be Prepared
The Old Dope Peddler
The Wild West Is Where I Want to Be
I Wanna Go Back to Dixie
The Hunting Song
I Hold Your Hand in Mine
My Home Town
When You Are Old and Gray
