This setting is a paraphrase rather than a direct quote, of the opening lines from Henry Carey's "Chrononhotonthologos; the most tragical tragedy that was ever tragedized by any company of tragedians".
Lyrics: Henry Carey

Aldiborontiphoscophornio, where left you Chrononhotonthologos?
Fatigued within his tent by the spoils of war, on downy couch reposing,
Rigdumfunidos watching near him, while the prince is dozing. Aldiborontiphoscophornio,Chrononhotonthologos,
Aldiborontiphoscophornio, Chrononhotonthologos,
Chrononhotonthologos, Chrononhotonthologos.
