     [dInIs expatiated in pass 1]:
>Course, you got to admit that "Betty said to duPRAY" don't scan. Only
>DUpray will do.

     [And Mark rebutted, still in pass 1]:
>I don't got to admit no such thing.
>      BETty told duPREE: [rest] "BUY me a DI'mond RING".
>      BETty told duPREE: [rest] "BUY me a DI'mond RING".
>      and duPREE said, "BAby, [rest] i'll BUY you 'MOST anyTHING".

     [Now dInIs has objected, pass 2]:
Cept it's

Betty said to DUpree

not told.

     [And Mark asserts, pass 2]:
I wrote it like I heard it sung. YMMV. The DEfense rests.
