Google "typewriter song + Boston Pops".  As expected, one of the results is a video of the Boston Pops Orchestra performing the song.

Aha!!  But here's where it gets fun.  Composer Leroy Anderson is summoned to the podium by — who else? — the legendary Arthur "Pops" Fiedler himself, who surrenders the baton to him and takes Anderson's place as a percussionist playing the 'carriage return' (actually, a g├╝iro, a Latin American instrument consisting of an open-ended, hollow gourd with parallel notches) during the piece.

Cud and paste the following link, then watch and enjoy!!
