      Sounds to me more like an opening ceremony song. Or better yet, at the opening
      night party at about 10 to 11 when everyone has already sampled the beer <g>.

      It's on Page 128 of Sorcerer's Stone (hardback) for those of you frantically
      searching your American Editions. None of the words were changed.

      Mythically yours,
