One day Charles opined:

"'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe."

To which Harry replied:

"The woman piaba and the man piaba
and the Ton Ton call baka lemon grass,
The lily root, gully root, belly root (uhmm),
And the famous grandy scratch scratch."

Which should serve to clear up all the previous fol-de-rol, don't you agree?

Saw HB, and Miriam Makeba in concert once. Odetta too.

And, God help us, Marie Osmond performing it (or part of it) and doing a damn good job too!

Truly, but Jack Elliot once also once said to me,

"Guave, Guave! Gwoojella,
D'jet d'wand amie..
Es some thing,
Surely, un't'wandile...

"Guave, Guave, Gwoojella,
D'jet d'wand amie..
Es some thing,
Sur le Ba-na-nah!

"Es some thing,
La ma-bon-za
La Mo-pan-dah?

"Es some thing,
La mabon-za!
Le Ba-na-nah!"

Couldn't agree more. And there's not a damn thing we can do about it, even if somebody does end up with an extra goat.
