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?

“Eagerly…(groan)
Eagerly…(yech)
Eager L-Y!”
