This lush and comical a cappella arrangement of Tom Lehrer's famous parody of the trite love song is faithful to the original in length and tone. Harmonically, it recalls Gene Puerling with a nod to barbershop. The ranges are well within the limits of a good men's jazz group. Levine added four words after the last chord which should get a big laugh if the audience isn't already in hysterics. TTTBB a cappella.
