“L-Y”
Artist: Tom Lehrer
Albums: Revisited (1959)

You're wearing your squeaky shoes
And right there taking a snooze
Is a tiger, so how do you walk on by?
Silently... silently... silent... L-Y

You're a secret agent man
Who's after the secret plan
How do you act so they don't know you're as spy?
Normally... normally... normal... L-Y

At an eating contest you boast
That you can eat the most
How do you down your fiftieth piece of pie?
Eagerly... eagerly... eager... L-Y

On the lake your boat upset
And your clothes got soaking wet
How do you stand and wait for them to dry?
D-d-d-d-d patiently... d-d-d-d-d patiently... d-d-d-d-d patient... L-Y

In the public library
You fall and you hurt your knee
But the sign says "quiet please," so how can you cry?
Quietly... quietly... quiet... L-Y

As you walk along the street
A porcupine you meet
How do you shake his hand when he says hi?
Carefully... carefully... careful... L-Y

You enter a very dark room
And sitting there in the gloom
Is Dracula! Now how do you say goodbye?
Immediately... immediately... immediate... L-Y
Bye Bye!
