US academic mathematician Tom Lehrer wrote and performed a large number of witty, biting satirical songs in the 1950s and 60s. He was highly skilled with lyrics and wordplay. Without any promotion by the music industry, he sold an extraordinary number of record albums of him singing his songs and accompanying himself on the piano. Album titles included 'An evening wasted with Tom Lehrer'.

I first encountered the songs at a 1980s London revue entitled Tomfoolery, where a compilation of his work was performed by 5 artistes accompanied by a band. My arrangements in this medley follow the musical style of Tomfoolery.

Now in his nineties, Lehrer has recently placed all his songs in the public domain, meaning that they can be freely performed and adapted without royalties or copyright restrictions. He has also posted all the words and music at, which may be of interest to anyone who wishes to use this medley for karaoke.

The medley consists of:
The old dope peddler
National brotherhood week
Wernher von Braun
We will all go together when we go
Performance: Live
