Song Lyrics:
Humoresque in C Major
By Benny (Bell) Samberg
In album Shaving Cream (Vanguard 79357; 1975)

(Note: of all Benny's songs, this is the one which I could most imagine Tom Lehrer singing- same piano style, delivery, etc.)

We went strolling through the park
Goosing statues in the dark
If Sherman's horse can take it why can't you?
Buffalo Bill, alas alack,
We pinched his nose and scratched his back
If Buffalo Bill can take it why can't you?

When we fooled with Atlas, covered him with a mattress,
Hung a tie on Caesar's fly, oh boy what fun
And on Greeley's daughter we put a bucket of water,
One good turn deserves another, that is why...

We strolled again into the park
And goosed the statues in the dark
If Robin Hood can take it why can't you?
Sitting Bull he didn't grin
When I hung whiskers on his chin
If Sitting Bull can take it why can't you?

Then we fooled with Atlas, covered him with a mattress,
Hung a tie on Caesar's fly, oh boy what fun
And on Greeley's daughter we put a bucket of water,
One good turn deserves another, that is why...

We'll stroll again into the park
And goose the statues in the dark
If Joan of Arc can take it why can't you?
Buffalo Bill next time I pass
I'll stick my finger in his eye :-)
If Buffalo Bill can take it why can't you?
