And now for the elocution with which Stone counters Stephen…
Oh what a to-do to die today
at a minute or two to two.
A thing distinctly hard to say,
Yet harder still to do.
For they’ll beat a tattoo at twenty to two
A rat-ta-ta-tat a ta-ta-tattoo
For the dragon will come
When he hears the drum
At a minute or two to two today,
At a minute or two to two.
