Ah, spring. It’s been late coming to Toronto, but we’ve had some indisputably springy days in T-Dot. And when the sun’s shining bright and birds are chirping, the first song that comes to mind is this song by Tom Lehrer.

Don’t know what that says about my advocacy on behalf of pigeons, but I can’t help it. The song¬†always puts me in a good mood.

Here’s a video of Mr. Lehrer performing the song live in 1998, almost forty years after he wrote it. Enjoy!

I live in Seattle, Washington and work as a legal assistant. I remember learning to read (comic strips) at a young age and nowadays try to read about 5-6 books a week. I love to travel, especially to Europe, and enjoy exploring smaller towns off the tourist track though London is my favorite city in the world.
