First And Second Law Of Thermodynamics

Album: The Complete Flanders & Swann (1964)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is more lunacy from the old Westminster school pals, but physics lessons were never like this even in their day.
    It begins with a spoken introduction and then explains how the Universe is running down. Recorded live with Donald Swann on piano and both men sharing the vocals - as ever - this is a par for the course Flanders & Swann classic, although not as well known as some of their other efforts, like "The Hippopotamus" or "The Gasman Cometh". >>
