Listen (If You Can) To: The Silent “E”

Tom Lehrer continued to deliver all through my formative years.

Last time: “LY.”

Today: The Silent “E”!

Tom Lehrer, the Electric Company, and “LY”

This song made a significant impression on me growing up. I have never forgotten what an adverb is!

“At an eating contest you boast
That you can eat the most!
How do you down your fiftieth piece of pie?

Eager L-Y!”
