Evil Parent tricks

So, babies (I have discovered) learn the music they hear frequently in the car.

I am certain that aiden_freeman will have the lyrics to S.J. Tucker's Sirens down before he is 18 months.

So, to be subversive, I've decided to play fun music with complex lyrics. In order that he hopefully tries to learn them.

This is my short list so far. I'm looking for suggestions:

"It's the End of the World as we Know It" - REM
"We Didn't Start the Fire" - Billy Joel
"The Elements" - Tom Lehrer
"Lobachevsky" - Tom Lehrer
"Modern Major General" - Gilbert and Sullivan

I figure, something from Sondheim... not sure what.

Suggestions?

I'd use "Finishing the Hat" from Sunday in the Park with George.

Preferably nothing from Sweeney Todd or Assassins (unless you want him to grow up with *your* sense of humor).

There's also Barenaked Ladies Baby Seat, among their many patter-songs.
