Peter, Paul and Mary sing Blowin' in the Wind. To show that a folk song can be written from any bit of folklore, they perform "Waukegan", a song they wrote based around Jack's age, cheapness, and other faults.
Jack invites the group to his home to try and talk them into recording the dreadful tune he wrote, "If You Say 'I Beg Your Pardon', Then I'll Come Back to You."
