IN his haste to sing the song he had come to sing he forgot several of its lyrics. The part about the young girl, for instance, was entirely omitted, as was the line about them rising at dawn. A few people may have noticed, but if they did nobody seemed to mind much. When he walked off stage he gave a short, clipped bow. Like the song’s lyrics, this gesture was hardly noticed.
