The rivers are all going Republican

IT'S fall, as cybaangel points out here.

I love fall. I always think of this touching elven lyric, from Bored of the Rings:

       Dago, Dago, Lassi Lima rintintin
       Yanqui unicycle ramar rotoroot
       Telstar aloha saarinen cloret
       Stassen camaro impala desoto?
       Gardol oleo telephon lumumba!
       Chappaqua havatampa muriel
       U canleada horsta wata, bwana,
       Butyu canna makit drinque!

       Comsat melba rubaiyat nirvana
       Garcia y vega hiawatha aloo.
       O mithra, mithra I fain wud lie doon!
       Valdaree valdera, que sera, sirrah,
       Honi soit la vache qui rit,
       Honi soit la vache qui rit.

[Translation:]
"O, the leaves are falling, the flowers are wilting, the rivers are all going Republican. O Ramar, Ramar, ride quickly on your golden unicycle and warn the nymphs and the drag queens! Ah, who now shall gather lichee nuts and make hoopla under the topiaries? Who will trim my unicorns? See, even now the cows laugh, Alas, Alas."

"Chorus: 'We are the chorus, and we agree. We agree, we agree, we agree'."
