Enable 480p and use the arrow icon! "The Vatican Rag" 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. Use HQ if possible and play back the video on a single YouTube page to get a bigger video window. The older versions will stay on the channel.
"The Vatican Rag" is also re-uploaded to celebrate religion and religious holidays. Over the years a lot of people have been offended by this song, also on YouTube. Please listen to Tom Lehrer's spoken intro.
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. April 2010.
