An after thought: Tom Lehrer

Actually, to be honest; I think Lehrer's most brilliant use of lyric is from the opening of "We will all go together when we go":

When you attend the funeral
It is sad to think that sooner'r <--- that's just friggin' brilliant
later, those you love
will do the same for you.

And you may have thought it tragic
Not to mention other adjec- <-- not quite as brilliant, but still cool.
-tives for all the weeping they will do.

And yes, solcita; now that one is stuck in your head, too ;)
