To be sung to the tune of "Yankee Doodle" ("Fleischmann Changes Mind, Will Stay in L.A.," by Marc Shulgold, Dec. 7):
Ernest Fleischmann made a plan
that he would go to Par-is;
found that he'd pay taxes there
and that would sure embar-rass!
Ernest Fleischmann changed his mind,
Paris was too chanc-ey;
the trustees would be hard to fool,
and taxes were too fan-cy!
The trustees in Los Angeles
need not their hair to tea-ar,
can roll once more upon their backs
their paws up in the ai-ir!
