Friends of mine have claimed to scandalize (or delight, depends on
who's telling it) more traditional folks at the Winnipeg fest in the
wee hours by singing MEC to a variety of other melodys.  Pinball
Wizard, The Stripper, oh, many others, but those stuck.

I can't remember how it worked with TS's melody.  Lots of folk license
has to be applied, I expect.  Pinball Wizard, OTOH, seems almost made
for the lyrics.  :-)

If you can't answer a man's arguments, all is not lost;
you can still call him vile names.
