1518. Audiovile

There was a musician named Deere
Whose performances made people jeer
He once left a Theremin
Full of his cerumen
(Seems he played only by ear...)

When he appeared with Stokowski the concert was billed, "Leopold and Lobe."


  1. Your vocabulary is voluminous. I deduced what cerumen was by the context but that was the first time I had seen that word.

  2. Musician Deere also collaborated with Kurt Weill on "The Threepinna Opera." Later Deere introduced Weill's wife, Lotte Lenya, to Paul Simon and Ladysmith Black Mambazo where Lenya got the idea for "Knife-ends on the Toes of her Shoes" (but only for her Klebb foot).
