This short, humorous ditty is performed solo at the piano by Tom Lehrer, although he doesn't actually mention what it is he got from Agnes or from one of his many other lady friends. We will not sully this database by mentioning what it was, suffice it to say that although Lehrer wrote this song in 1953 and performed it throughout the rest of the '50s, he never included it on any album because he considered it too risqué. It was revised in 1980 for the stage revue Tomfoolery
, although according to one Lehrer fan
apparently writing sometime in the 1990s, "the revision made it naughtier [though] it seems fairly innocent by today's standards".
