So, it's a kind of "buzzword". (That's another subtle bit of wordplay! ;-) )

Dankon.

Was he camping at Emerson Lakes? It is a lovely and rustic place (about 275 kms from where I live) but there are not any Palms there, it's far too cold in this part of the world for them to grow.

This multilingual-fest is becoming Daff-a-Down-Dilly. I vote a return to English. All in favour, say "Aye"!

and even my tarkus wordplay above is close to the yiddish slang for butt

That is not an Emerson, Lake and Palmer reference.

tuchus. Tarkus, was the original word-play but most disturbingly you seem unaware of the home of Jeremy Bender.

Yesterday, I just sold another 50 vinyl to a dealer, followed by giving another 40 to a charity shop, and in one of the piles was Tarkus.

Now, honestly, which of us, back in 1971, did not learn from the title track lyrics

Had you talked to the winds of time
Then you'd know how the waters rhyme
Taste of wine

How can you know where you've been?
In time you'll see the sign
And realize your sin

Firstly, I did get the Tarkus reference (I can Google, and I am good at it!). :)

Secondly, as for your query, the answer would be: me! I don't want to make you feel old or anything, but back in 1971, the only lyrics I was learning from were more along the lines of:

Do you know the muffin man? ... He lives on Drury Lane, and

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!

Deep and enlightening stuff! 8)

your shocking failure to condemn those chants is shocking. I, for one, am shocked.

"muffin man" - disgracefully sexist

"black sheep" - disgracefully racist.

And hardly a coincidence that Geoffrey belongs in both of the victim groups attacked in your early war-hymns

agghhhhh, I am going to lie down

Oh, but I do condemn them! I, too, am shocked, and quite appalled, that my parents and teachers would try to indoctrinate me with the oppressive intersectionality advocated within so-called "nursery rhymes", which you so rightly refer to as "war-hymns". It was abject mind control, brainwashing of the innocent with repetitive and catchy jingles that we children would happily sing, day and night, unaware of the psychic harm being inflicted upon us (or the harm that those "lyrics" were inflicting upon others).

However, there was another "hymn", one of peace, coincidentally written "back in 1971", that later had a far greater impact on me, once I had attained enough self-awareness to think for myself and to forge my own humanistic path, thus breaking the spell of my past indoctrination and enabling me to throw off its tyrannical shackles. It was this song, which, to this day, is my credo:

There is always hope, my dear solongleonard, as long as there are those who embrace what is right and good. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one!

it's easy for you casually to claim coincidence and yet on the very day John Lennon was murdered, my partner was born. No one sane would suggest that was mere coincidence. You may say that I'm a schemer but I'm not the only one.
