**** The Rhubarb Tart song **** **** Transcribed 2/3/87 by **** **** Jonathan Partington ( JRP1%CAM.PHX%UK.AC.CAM.ENG-ICF@AC.UK ) **** THE RHUBARB TART SONG ===================== I want another slice of rhubarb tart. I want another lovely slice. I'm not disparaging the blueberry pie But rhubarb tart is oh so very nice. A rhubarb what? A rhubarb tart! A whatbarb tart? A rhubarb tart! I want another slice of rhubarb tart! The principles of modern philosophy Were postulated by Descartes. Discarding everything he wasn't certain of He said 'I think therefore I am a rhubarb tart.' A rhubarb what? A rhubarb tart! A Rene who? Rene Descartes! Poor nut he thought he was a rhubarb tart! Read all the existentialist philosophers, Like Schopenhauer and Jean-Paul Sartre. Even Martin Heidegger agrees on one thing: Eternal happiness is rhubarb tart. A rhubarb what? A rhubarb tart! A Jean-Paul who? A Jean-Paul Sartre! Eternal happiness is rhubarb tart. A rhubarb tart has fascinated all the poets. Especially the immortal bard. He caused Richard the Third to call on Bosworth Field: 'My kingdom for a slice of rhubarb tart!' A rhubarb what? A rhubarb bard! Immortal what? Immortal tart! As rhymes go that is really pretty bard! -- John Cleese To: CLARINET@YALEVMX
