Call him a Nazi, he won't even frown. "ha, Nazi sch-mazi," says Wernher von Braun.

"Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down? That's not my department," says Wernher von Braun.

"In german or in english I know how to count down, And I'm learning Chinese," says Wernher von Braun.

ANNND, KEEP IT GOING!...

First you get down on your knees,
Fiddle with your rosaries,
Bow your head with great respect
And genuflect, genuflect, genuflect!

I would have went with that, but I didn't know how to spell genuflect and neither did my spell check. But then again, I didn't spell castanet correctly either. Spell check missed it. After posting I had a feeling I should look it up.

"I don't need a passport to safely touch ground. Just a little PAPERCLIP," said Wehrner von Braun.

"On Redstone! On Atlas, Titan, and Saturn! I'll boost you on anything!" claims Wehrner von Braun.

"Thirteen was an 'oopsie'! I wasn't even around! Just ask Gunther Wendt!" cried Wehrner von Braun.

At last the matador did what we wanted him to
He raised his sword and his aim was true
In that moment of truth I suddenly knew...
...Someone had stolen my wallet.

Plagiarise! Plagiarise!
Let no-one else's work evade your eyes,
Why do you think God made your eyes?
Just be sure to always call it please, "research".

Be nice to people who
Are inferior to you.
It's only for a week, so have no fear.
Be grateful that it doesn't last all year!

(Most expensive CDs I ever bought. About 50 quid for three. And that was over 25 years ago.)

I'm 66 and haven't listened to a TL album in decades and I'm surprised at how many whole songs and bits of songs I remember without googling.


Members of the Corps all hate the thought of war.
They'd rather kill them off by peaceful means.
Stop calling it aggression. We hate that expression.
We only want the world to know that we support the status quo.
They love us everywhere we go but when in doubt...send the Marines.

For might makes right, until they've seen the light they've got to be protected, all their rights respected until somebody we like can be elected.

I saw a clip of him on some awards show. This was just a few years ago. He was singing a song during a pause in the award presentation.

The host introduced him (the host was a well known guy, I forget who), the audience clapped, he said, thank you for the introduction. He turned to the audience and said, I wondered what ever happened to him.

Some have harsh words
For this man of renown,
While some say our attitude
Should be one of gratitude,
Like the widows and criples
Of old London town,
Who owe their large pensions
To Wehrner von Braun.

Yeah, okay, this is the same song as the OP, but I'm only doing what I can remember and I like that verse.

Thought of one:

Luxembourg is next to go,
Then who knows? Maybe Monaco.
We'll try to stay serene and calm,
When Alabama gets the bomb.

I thought I'd have a little fun with the elements. Many are from memory, some needed checking. Corrections welcome. The original was from Google Play Music.


There's Sb, As, Al, Se,
And H and O and N and Re,
And Ni, Nd, Np, Ge,
And Fe, Am, Ru, U,
Eu, Zr, Lu, V,
And La and Os and As and Ra,
And Au and Pa and In and Ga, (gasp)
And I and Th and Tm and Tl.

There's Y, Yb, Ac, Rb,
And B, Gd, Nb, Ir,
And Sr and Si and Ag and Sm,
And Bi, Br, Li, Be, and Ba.

Isn't that interesting?
I knew you would.
I hope you're all taking notes, because there's going to be a short quiz next period...

There's Ho and He and Hf and Er,
And P and Fr and F and Tb,
And Mn and Hg, Mo, Mg,
Dy and Sc and Ce and Cs.
And Pb, Pr and Pt, Pu,
Pa, Pm, K, Po,
And Ta, Tc, Ti, Te, (gasp)
And Cd and Ca and Cr and Cm.

There's S, Cf and Fm, Bk,
And also Md, Es, No,
And Ar, Kr, Ne, Ra, Xe, Zn and Rh,
And Cl, C, Co, Cu, W, Sn and Na.

These are the only ones of which the news has come to Hahvard,
And there may be many others but they haven't been discovered.


That's 102 elements, the first missing is number 103, Lr.

You'd have to be pretty good to get it all right singing just from that crib.

Concerning my previous post: Of course I got the details wrong going from memory, but I found it: entertaining. From 1998.

My tragic tale, I won't prolong,
Rickety-tickety-tin,
My tragic tale I won't prolong,
And if you do not enjoy the song,
You've yourselves to blame if it's too long,
You should never have let me begin, begin,
You should never have let me begin.

...the heartwarming tale of a young necrophiliac who finally achieved his life goal by becoming a coroner.

Mr. Lehrer's muse is not encumbered by such considerations as taste...
