Personal Quote:

The first thing is to get the idea for the song, then to get the title, or the ending or something. To begin a song is not hard, it's where you're going to end. You gotta have the joke at the end. So it was mainly getting the idea and deciding what form it would be in, a waltz or a tango, or whatever, and then plugging away at it. See more »


Has been been erroneously reported as being dead so many times that he keeps a scrapbook of articles mentioning him as "the late Tom Lehrer". See more »
