W:So with this suspender a stone he let fly, W:And hit poor Goliath right smack in the eye. W: W:3 W:Goliath he swore and sorely he spake W:“Blank, blank, blank, blank, blank. Blank blankety blank!” W:The air all around him was turning quite blue; W:He used all the old words and made up some new. W: W: W:4 W:Goliath collapsed in a swoon on the sward; W:Young David unsheathed Goliath’s great sword. W:He unlaced his helmet and sliced off his head, W:And all Israel shouted, “Goliath is dead!”
