Tom Lehrer: Send the Marines


A song just as relevant today as when Tom Lehrer wrote it back in 1965. The only difference seems to be, “Send the al-Qaeda”, “Send the Blackwater” or “Send the neo-Nazis” as the US can’t afford a full scale war any longer. If you liked his satirical style, you might also enjoy this full Copenhagen performance from 1967 below:
