Audio or video from Das Lusitania Songspiel?

On Saturday Night Live in 1986, I saw Sigourney Weaver and Christopher Durang perform a song from their 1979-1980 Brecht/Weill parody, Das Lusitania Songspiel. It's hi-larious. Unfortunately, it was the same episode with "Choppin' Broccoli" and "Baby, It's Cold Outside," and Songspiel got cut for syndication (thanks, Lorne!).

Does anyone know where I can find audio or video of the original performance, or the SNL appearance? On the web, CD, or DVD? (This gentleman found an .mp3 somewhere, four years ago.) Tausend Dank!

Response by poster: As I recall, the number Weaver and Durang did for SNL was in a sort of pidgin German, and it was a little highbrow for an episode with an "Alienses" parody. (Yes, the Aliens thread inspired this question.) I was hoping maybe someone with a YouTube account would have a twenty-year-old VHS copy lying around, but alas. I will try an old-fashioned e-mail, instead.
