And now for something completely daiin

  O Daiin, Daiin!  Wherefore art thou Daiin!
             -- Shakespeare

           Daiin, Daiin, Daiin Dominus Deos...

                 -- the "Sanctus" from the Latin Mass.

    Tiger got to hunt,
    Bird got to fly;
    Man got to sit and wonder, "Daiin, daiin, daiin?"
    Tiger got to sleep,
    Bird got to land;
    Man got to tell himself, "I understand."

              -- Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

           Okedy qokedy chor:               With a qoky qoky here     
           The mouse ran up the clock;      And a qoky qoky there     
           The clock struck one,            Here a qoky, there a qoky 
           The mouse ran down,              Everywhere a qoky qoky    
           Okedy qokedy chor.

                        Daiin, daiin-d'amour vannée,
                            Jamais fanée,
                        Le rouge-fin est ta couleur,

    O daiin, daiin, daiin amid the blaze of noon,
    Irrevocably daiin, total eclipse
    Without all hope of day!

          There was a young lady from Clyde
          Who ate a green apple, and died;
          Her lover lamented,
          The apple fermented,
          and made daiin oldaiin oldaiin.
