Tom Lehrer – The Old Dope Peddler

Tom Lehrer oli pianisti ja erikoistunut parodioihin. Tämä diilerikuvauskin on väännetty 40-luvun Kay Kyserin hitistä The Old Lamp-Lighter.

”When the shades of night are falling,
Comes a fellow evryone knows,
It’s the old dope peddler,
Spreading joy wherever he goes.
Evry evening you will find him,
Around our neighborhood.
It’s the old dope peddler
Doing well by doing good.

He gives the kids free samples,
Because he knows full well
That today’s young innocent faces
Will be tomorrow’s clientèle.
Here’s a cure for all your troubles,
Here’s an end to all distress.
It’s the old dope peddler
With his powdered ha-happiness.”
