Doug Wilson quotes:
> Recorded by A. W. Read, 1928: a non-mercenary version:
> Here I sit all broken hearted
> Came to shit and only farted
As I learned it, except for the "all".
When I was an undergrad in the Classics Dep't of CCNY, one professor
(Robert Hennion) whiled away his straphanging time by classicizing such
items. This is the only one I recall:
Hic jaceo, cor meum peredi.
Pecunia impensa modo pepedi.
-- Mark A. Mandel
