: My memory, and I am 76, my father quoted "Go where the woodbine twineth and the whangdoodle mourneth no more." I do not find the second line in any of the questions. Is there somewhere I might find it? I always thought it might be Shakespeare.

Here is a link to previous discussion: http://www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/45/messages/945.html It sounds awfully familiar and I am betting Mark Twain.
