I like that! Actually, the "Hokey Pokey" seems to work, too:

(You put your)
right hand in, you put your right hand out
alpha beta gamma del-ta ep- si- lon

you put your

right hand in, and you shake it all about
eta theta iota kappa lamda mu nu

you do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around
xi o - mikron pi rho sigma tau upsilon

that's what it's all about
phi chi psi o - mega!

Now back to SGML repositories...
