Poisoning Pigeons in the Park
music and lyrics by Tom Lehrer
from the album, An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer

Arranged for the guitar by Mathew Needleman (mln6614@is.nyu.edu).
If you make improvements to this arrangement, please e-mail them to me.
If there is interest, I think there a couple more Tom Lehrer songs that
could work on the guitar.

The rhythm changes at different points during the song.  Sometimes it
better to strum a chord only once when indicated.

[C] Spring is [A7] here, a-suh-puh-[D7]ring is [G7] here.
[C] Life is [A7] skittles and [D7] life is [G7] beer.
[C] I think the [G7] loveliest [C] time of the [G7] year is the [C]
Dont [A7] you? [D7]  Course you [G7] do.
But theres [Dm] one thing that makes spring [C] complete for me,
And [D7] makes every Sunday a [G] treat for [G7] me.

All the [C] world seems in tune
On a spring afternoon,
When were poisoning pigeons in the [G7] park.
Every [Dm] Sunday youll see
My sweetheart and me,
As we [G7] poison the pigeons in the [C] park.

When [F] they see us coming, the [C] birdies all try anhide,
But they [D7] still go for peanuts when [G7] coated with cyanide.
The [C] suns shining bright,
Everything seems all right,
When were [D7] poisoning [G7] pigeons in the [C] park.

Weve [G7] gained notoriety,
And [C] caused much anxiety
In the [G7] Audubon Society
With our [C] games.
They [A7] call it impiety,
And lack of propriety,
And quite a variety
Of unpleasant [D] names.
But its [D7] not against any re[G]ligion
To [D7] want to dispose of a [G7] pigeon.

[G7] So if [C] Sunday youre free,
Why dont you come with me,
And well poison the pigeons in the [G7] park.

And [Dm] maybe well do
In a squirrel or two,
While were [G7] poisoning pigeons in the [C] park.

Well [F] murder them all amid [C] laughter and merriment,
Ex[D7] cept for the few we take [G7] home to experiment.
My [C] pulse will be quikenin
With each drop of strychnine
We [D7] feed to a [G7] pigeon.
It [D7] just takes a [G7] smidgen!
To [D7] poison a [G7] pigeon in the [C] park.  [G7] [C]
