In comes I, says Robbin to Bobbin. There were three Straw Bears and the little one said, rough music! Will the Phantom of the Opera feature in the Scottish play? This cold night will turn us all to fools and morris dancers: hocus pocus, and Faustus must be damned. There were three caskets, and only one contained the liar’s whetstone. Oh yes, there is a doctor to be found at the Hawk’s Well. Out, little spear, if herein thou be! What’s the time, Widow Twankey, at the Common Riding of the Valkyries? A knot, a knot! Waly waly wallflower in the eye of the sun, up and down and around the town. There were three oranges, my true love to see, but ’tis the foul fiend Flibbertigibbet. Surely he is a Puritan, for he has cast out Jack in the Green.
