jogging the list memory

Of course I had to go and open up "Waiting for Godot", because I have all
the time in the world to spare for this (not). Here's the same rhyme, ala
Samuel Beckett, from the very begining of act II, sung by Vladimir (Didi):

A dog came in the kitchen
And stole a crust of bread
The cook up with a ladle
And beat him till he was dead.

Then all the dogs came running
And dug the dog a tomb
And wrote upon the tombstone
For the eyes of dogs to come:

"A dog came in the kitchen..."

(etc, ad infinitum)

And this rhyme, which I learned in German (very rough translation from
distant memory, so probably wrong in parts):

A dog came into the kitchen
And stole an egg from the cook.
The cook took a spoon
And struck the dog in two
Then many dogs came
And gathered around his grave
And set up a memorial
Upon which was written:
"A dog came into the kitchen..."
