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 sang "Christopher Robin" by Loggins and Messina, adding the re-visiting verse Kenny Loggins added when he actually HAD a child in later years.

Now my children are singing it to their children. My late twenties son plays it on the guitar for himself (and for me).

It's wonderful, amazing, and sweet reminiscence.
