Suffering this one on and off for the past day and a half or so. I'm pretty sure I have not heard it since it was a hit more than 50 years ago. Finding the Youtube clip was difficult because I could not remember much of the (truly forgettable) lyrics. I used "trip", "weather is fine" and "lyrics" as search terms. Bingo moment occurred eventually when I clicked on this link.

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

I just made out the last of these lines for the first time

But six rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shaving razor's cold and it stings

The song is by John Stewart, of the late line up of Kinston Trio.

They did whaling songs and all kinds of half spoken comedy numbers. The closest they got to an ear worm: (original line up)

Ear worms are an excellent example of the idea of populations of memes evolving in a process analogous to natural selection...
