"Paxton and Lehrer were for the most part satirists."
To say that, Frank, I suspect you haven't heard a lot of Tom Paxton's output. Yes, he has written many, many satirical songs, but they hardly make up the "most part" of his songwriting catalog. He's also written many deadly serious songs, personal songs, children's songs, etc.
