PUPPY AT THE POUND and WALK THE WORLD NOW, CHILDREN

From landofpuregold:
Tom Chapin performed this song LIVE at Acoustic Long Island on April 16, 2008. This charming video was produced and directed by Rob Dircks. While it is online as a podcast, it kept skipping and restarting so we thought we'd share it here so folks could enjoy it. The video also includes the song, Walk the World Now, Children.

Both songs are on Tom's Some Assembly Required CD.

PICNIC OF THE WORLD

From SquirrelGirl13:
With all that's going on nowadays, I couldn't help but remember this song form my childhood.

I made this video mostly maps so anybody out there who doesn't know where places like Russia are (I know there are people like you out there... ) can for once actually look at a damn map. I learned where Russia was when I was 4. I'll give you a hint: IT'S THE BIG ONE ABOVE CHINA AND MONGOLIA!
