Before you click the e-mail button, I'll beat you to it -- I know I have taken liberties with the lyrics. I'm sythesizing at least three different versions here, and in so doing, I have eliminated many of the then-comtemporary references that originally contributed to the song's popularity. There are numerous variations available on the Internet, so use whichever you feel most comfortable with.
