Enable 480p and use the arrow icon! "The MLF Lullaby" is now REPUBLISHED to celebrate a lot of video views for the first version published to YouTube. Why? Well, to offer the song in slightly better quality. The old version is still on the channel. "The MLF Lullaby" is a comment on an American proposal to produce a fleet of submarines and warships, each manned by international NATO crews, and armed with multiple nuclear-armed Polaris ballistic missiles. The proposal was floated by the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations. You should watch the video, listen to what Lehrer says -- yes, his intro is included -- and search Wikipedia for MLF to read more about it.

In 2008 Lehrer said "OK" to "The Tom Lehrer Wisdom Channel", as long as the performance is not altered and as long as it's free in the YouTube flash video format.
