No longer child's play

A is for arrest, B is for blow, C is for career, and D is for down the tubes.

OK, those aren't the lyrics for Crazy ABCs, one of the cleverest tunes on Snacktime!, the new hit children's album by the Barenaked Ladies. But it may turn out to be a summary of the band's future.

The Barenaked Ladies have abruptly cancelled their August appearances at the Disney Music Block Party in Long Island, N.Y., in the wake of publicity over lead singer Steven Page's arrest on cocaine possession charges last week.
