Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Danny Kaye Songs

On the net it says::

Any subject controversial,
   economic or commercial,
      you must treat with lifted brow,
Let the hoi polloi get bilious,
   keep the manner supercilious
      of a slightly sacred cow.

If with courage Carthaginian
   you just offer no opinion,
      you'll be hailed as a man of sense;
Endeavor to be clever
   and commit yourself forever
      to a firm stand on defense.

And everyone will say
   as you go your silent way,
"Since this young man doesn't open his mouth,
   and nothing wrong says he,
      Why, what a most infallibly right young man
         this right young man must be!"
