Where can I find lyrics to the Tom Lehrer song "Without an S," performed on "The Electric Company" by Rita Moreno?

On an early season of "The Electric Company," Rita Moreno did a parody of the Vincent Youmans ballad "Without a Song." The comic lyric, beginning "Without an S," is by Tom Lehrer. The running gag in the lyric is that the removal of the letter "s" would change a word's meaning, e.g., "sin would be in."
I've looked on lyric sites, sheet music sites, video sharing sites, Tom Lehrer fan sites. Perhaps because the music is under copyright, these lyrics just don't seem to be out there. Can anyone help with a link, a text file, or a clip from the original show?
