What a to-do to die today, at a minute or two to two;

a thing distinctly hard to say, but harder still to do.

We’ll beat a tattoo, at twenty to two

a rat-tat-tat- tat-tat-tat- tat-tat-tattoo

and the dragon will come when he hears the drum

at a minute or two to two today, at a minute or two to two.
