Lehrer did have a healthy perspective on marriage and aging. And he is right, as always. Just listen to "When You Are Old And Gray". This is true Lehrer wisdom of life, and it is good fun too :-)

Now, is it true that some YouTube videos deteriorate over time? The last time this video was checked it had a stuttering playback. If this happens to you, add the code &fmt=18 to the page url or select the alternative version ("National Brotherhood Week" and "When You Are Old And Gray" double video).

Lehrer 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.
