END BIT CREDIT: Sir Terry Pratchett in conversation with Dr Jacqueline Simpson in 2010 – The Folklore Society [Taken from part 1, near the end, but listen to the whole thing – there’s more of the song as well as a fantastic conversation – and perhaps even invest in a membership. It's quite possibly the best non-essential on which I spend money.]
