Having just recently taken part in an Irish singalong, I wondered if 
the WG knew about the following (rarely sung) version of a famous old 
song.
-----------------------------
The Golden Triple (trad.)

As I went down to Dublin city
at the hour of twelve at night
What should I see but a Golden Triple
shining alone in the pale moonlight.
First its subject, then its object
Over a fire of amber coals:
in all my life I ne'er did see
such a graph so neat about the nodes.

Whack for the toora loora laddie
Whack for the toora loora lay.
(rept.)

As I went down to Dublin city
at the hour of half-past three
What should I see but the Golden Triple
and reified I thought to be.
But when it spied me, then it fled me
lifting its property o'er its edge
In all my life I ne'er did see
a graph as quick as the RDF.

Whack for the... (etc)

Ive wandered north and Ive wandered south
Through description logic and plain old KIF
Up and around the Lispish highlands
and back by Nappertandy's skiff;
Old age has laid his hand upon me
Cold as a fire of ashy coals;
But in all my life I ne'er did see
such a graph so neat about the nodes.

Whack for the...(etc)
