Other remarks:

A preamble by Huliganov about the well-known Whittaker song, originally written by Ron Webster and performed by Elvis and others, but most notably by Whittaker.

The introduction refers to how the thesis of the song’s chorus stands in opposition to the Sapir Whorff hypothesis in linguistics, and also delves too deeply ito why the narrator is leaving if he loves this woman so much. To which Roger Whittaker might well respond “Mind your own business, Russky boy!”
