Music by America's favorite singer-songwriter, satirist, pianist, and mathematician. Included are songs from the PBS television show The Electric Company, as well as Lehrer's always-current "Pollution" that was featured on the popular television show That Was the Week That Was.

All four of these songs are published here with the words, melody line, piano accompaniment, and chord symbols. Choirs may divide lines among voice sections, semi-choruses, or soloists, or add occasional harmonies or musical instruments.

Unison or multiple voices / A catchy tune in a lively calypso style, "Pollution" is deceptively cheerful until you pay attention to the lyrics, which address the damage done to America's environment. Watch a video of Lehrer performing this song on YouTube:

L-Y - View Sample Pages
Unison or multiple voices / L-Y demonstrates the use of the suffix “-ly” by illustrating situations where it would come in handy — tiptoeing QUIETLY as you pass a sleeping tiger, for example! Here’s a You Tube clip of "L-Y" as it was originally featured on The Electric Company:

O-U (The Hound Song) - View Sample Pages
Unison or multiple voices / O-U makes use of the “ou” sound, demonstrating it through a quick narrative by a very well-behaved hound, who must remain quiet if he does not want to be taken to the pound! Watch O-U on You Tube as it originally appeared on The Electric Company:
