Here's all 18+ minutes of Arlo Guthrie's 1967 tale of Thanksgiving dinner, solid waste disposal strategies, crime scene investigation, jurisprudence and the Seeelective Service Administration. I was reminded of this because the movie was on last night (uh, not very good), and even though I turned it off after about 45 minutes, I decided I wanted to hear the original again. It's still pretty damned entertaining.
Being of a certain age, I'm pretty sure I heard this a few hundred-thousand times during the 70's. I suspect, however, that a lot of...uh...younger folks are familiar with the "song" (it's really more of a monologue), but have never listened to it from beginning to end.
So here it is, in two parts, with illustrations by Andrew Colunga.
