Thread Name: Origins: Men (Martin Mull, Steve Martin)
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Anyone know the writer of MEN song?
Do we have correct and definitive lyrics for this song? How 'bout a tune?
Anybody know of any recordings that may be available?

I know it's on a Martin Mull CD called I'm Everyone I Ever Loved, but I think that CD is out of production. Somebody above said they thought Loudon Wainwritht III recorded the song - he does have a song with that title on his History CD, but I think it's a different song.

I think I've heard it sung by the inimitable Ed Silberman, but that's another story....
