I figured they must be singing. Everybody looks funny when they sing. How come they're all wearing matching neckties?

It's the Baptist men's choir from the inauguration (were any public school kids asked to perform?). They reminded me of the guys who sing the Indiana state song before the state finals in "Hoosiers."

Argh! Please -- that's Pirates, not Pinafore.

Alas, you are right. I wondered as soon as I posted it, but knew someone would catch my error if i was wrong! Thanks.

And I've been singing the darn thing to myself all morning, too.

I've got it running through my head now, too ... in fact, I am already in Act 2...

MABEL:
    Go, ye heroes, go to glory,
    Though you die in combat gory,
    Ye shall live in song and story.
    Go to immortality!
    Go to death, and go to slaughter;
    Die, and every Cornish daughter
    With her tears your grave shall water.
    Go, ye heroes, go and die!

SEARGEANT:
    Though to us it’s evident,
    These attentions are well meant,
    Such expressions don’t appear,
    Calculated men to cheer,
    Who are going to meet their fate
    In a highly nervous state ...
