That's what we figured.  We did the CD as a gift for a friend who is
notoriously hard to shop for and who LOVED the musical episode.  Watching
his jaw drop for 58 seconds of silence was priceless.  (I'm definitely
buying the CD if they release it, if only because I'm sure the production
quality will be far better than ours was.)

"I'm asking you, please, no!
It isn't right, it isn't fair,
There was no parking anywhere,
I think that hydrant wasn't there...."

(Guess who had the job of downloading lyrics and then correcting all the
horrible mistakes the transcribers made? :)

And today, as we were helping to clean our church building, my brain
defaulted to Xander and Anya's duet as it frequently does.  That's just too
catchy a tune.
