The text above is the chorus to Squeeze's song "Hourglass". Try singing it a few times, as fast as you can, without making a single mistake. Don't stop to breathe, because you'll be too slow. Then repeat that five times back to back.
I strongly suspect foul play on the part of Squeeze -- perhaps it's a (set of) sample(s). Has anyone ever see them perform this song live!?
