The Lyrics

Happy belated 90th, Tom Lehrer! My lyrics may not rhyme as well as yours but I'm not a mathematition.
Spring is here sp-ra-ra-ring is here
Income tax deadline is near
I think that the most stressful time of the year is the spring - I do - don't you? Course you do!
And there's one thing that raises my hair for me and makes every night a nightmare for me.
While I'm watching TV there's a strange symphony
It's coyotes howling in the dark
We go beddy-bye to a shrill lullaby
It's coyotes howling in the dark
When we awaken the doggies all shut their mouths
But they start up their concert when we turn the porch light out.
When the moon's shining bright everything seems all right
'Till coyotes start howling in the dark - la la la de de
It's a frightful scenario
When they start their ora - ter - io
We demand a mora - ter - io
On their airs.
PETA says we're mercenary
Their presence is necessary
We're invading their territory
We're close to their lairs
But it's not against any credo, Guys
To want to dispose of coy - o -tys.
When you're out for fresh air, you'd best be prepared
For coyotes howling in the dark
And better beware 'cause you might meet a bear
While coyotes are howling in the dark
Or better stay in and keep your surveilence on
Or you'll be in the midst of a coyote sing along
So we'll not be afraid of coyotes on parade
When coyotes start howlin'
Let's hope there's an owl in
When coyotes start howling in the dark.
I deplore cruelty to animals so I left out poisoning.
