It's been written.  It exists.  It is real.  I was quoting, not making 
up.  Unfortunately, I don't remember what language the original is in.  Not 
Hungarian, I believe.  I think it was Bulgarian or something.  I came 
across it, and said, "I *have* to use that!"  I think it took me about four 
years to find the right book, but I finally did.

Don't ask for the rest of the song; I don't remember.
