That second one is a Paul Simon tune. The "Red Rubber Ball" line in it and title is corny but the rest of the lyrics are okay. At least they're singing and harmonizing, which is more than I can say for some other more revered songs. Hey, I'm not ashamed to admit I like some old sixties pop. I even got their CD. They were managed by Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
A spot of trivia. The two guys singing went on to successful careers as ad jingle writers with the Alka-Seltzer "Plop plop, fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is" and the Seven-Up "Uncola" jingles.
