GUEST,fretless Lyr Req: The Irish Ballad (Tom Lehrer) (10) RE: Lyr Req: Help finding 'the Irish Ballad' 31 Mar 05


Heres what the DT has for the last verse:

My tragic tale I won't prolong
Sing rickety tickety tin
My tragic tale I won't prolong
I hope you like my little song
You've yourself to blame if it's too long
You should never have let me begin, begin
You should never have let me begin.

That's not exactly how I remember it from Tom's records, but its close enough. Tom's brother Larry taught drama in my Sunday School. The sense of humor and mischief ran in the family.

As it apparently does in yours, too, Azania. What else was in your father's repertoire?
