Quote from the Tom Lehrer Website :
I, Tom Lehrer, and the Tom Lehrer Trust 2000, hereby grant the following permission:
All the lyrics on this website, whether published or unpublished, copyrighted or uncopyrighted, may be downloaded and used in any manner whatsoever, without requiring any further permission from me or any payment to me or to anyone else.
The music of all the songs on this website that were written by me may also be downloaded and used as described above.
In other words, all the lyrics herein and all the music herein that was written by me should be treated as though they were in the public domain.
I added a third verse of lyrics to bring the song up to date. This was done without re-arranging Tom's original Lyrics which so many people already know.
I have seen an updated version which re-works verses 1 and 2 but those who know the lyrics will not wish to re-learn.
