I love the hell out of this song. Especially its use in Babe: Pig in the City.

I concur, while hinting at the fact that choler is tough to understand for sanguine types.

And the way this famous song got lost in translation shows that the misunderstanding goes the other way around too.

This translation shows what translating should be.

PS. Elvis version of the last song will be my last post.
