Don't play this song too loudly and listen carefully. I hope you understand the lyrics easily because Tom Lehrer pronounces very clearly.
This is LY, it's spelt L Y and it's very useful. Let me show you:
You're wearing your squeaky shoes
And right there taking a snooze
Is a tiger, so how do you walk on by?
Silently ... silently ... silent ... l-y
You're a secret agent man
Who's after the secret plan
How do you act so they dont know you're as spy?
Normally ... normally ... normal ... l-y
At an eating contest you boast
That you can eat the most
How do you down your fiftieth piece of pie?
Eagerly ... eagerly ... eager ... l-y
On the lake your boat upset
And your clothes got soaking wet
How do you stand and wait for them to dry?
D-d-d-d-d patiently ... d-d-d-d-d patiently ... patient ... l-y
In the public library
You fall and you hurt your knee
But the sign says quiet please, so how can you cry?
Quietly .... quietly .... quiet ... l-y
As you walk along the street
A porcupine you meet
How do you shake his hand when he says hi?
Carefully ... carefully .... careful ... l-y
You enter a very dark room
And sitting there in the gloom
Is dracula! now how do you say goodbye?
Immediately ... immediately ... immediate ... l-y
