I see Tom Lehrer has put all of his lyrics and music into the public domain, which may be of interest to some aspiring writers interested in satire. https://tomlehrersongs.com/ only for a limited time can they be downloaded.

You mean we can now go Poisoning Pigeons in the Park without fear of legal consequences?

Was taken by surprise to see that, Willsie, thank you.

I have contemplated learning a TL song or two before but find the rhythm and singing to currently be a bit beyond me.

The Irish Ballad is popular in our household.  First via a vinyl LP of my Father's and later passed down through me to my son, who happily sings through most of the verses at odd moments, like driving in the car to an Open Mic night.
