Enable 480p and use the arrow icon! "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" is now REPUBLISHED yet another time to celebrate a lot of video views for the first two versions published to YouTube. Why? Well, to offer the song in (even) slightly better quality. The old version is still on the channel, but use HQ if possible and play back the video on a single YouTube page to get a bigger video window.
The song in this video was written by Lehrer as early as 1952 or 1953 (may be even earlier), years before an Austrian version appeared, for which Lehrer did not get any credit. Sometimes Lehrer himself would cover other people's songs, but they were always credited. "Poisoning Pigeons In The Park" is a true Tom Lehrer original. Use the link below to read more about the Kreisler/Lehrer discussion:
Some people have written messages to this channel, angered because of the posting of this song. They are "friends of all animals", which basically means that they didn't get it.
In 2008 Lehrer really said "OK" to "The Tom Lehrer Wisdom Channel" on YouTube, as long as the performance is not altered and as long as it's free in the YouTube flash video format.
