Undated: 'Poisoning Pigeons in the Park'

Song satirist Tom Lehrer records and releases a studio version of "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park." On the flip side is "The Masochism Tango." Lehrer, a Harvard-educated mathematician, had already achieved a measure of fame with his darkly comic looks at nuclear war ("We Will All Go Together When We Go"), racism in the South ("I Wanna Go Back to Dixie") and dismemberment ("I Hold Your Hand in Mine)."
