Now THAT is what *should* happen. Public domain is where all this property belongs, so other artists can use it for inspiration. 3 cheers for Tom!

That's great. I have several of his albums and use to listen to his stuff on the old Dr Demento show when I was a kid. I've been know to break out singing "Be Prepared" from time to time.

The site now also includes all the music he wrote for the songs, and similar permissions for his music as for his words.
