    Neat. Could you provide an example of the sort of output it produces?

    Well, it wouldn't produce a lot of output, that isn't the point.
    The point is the expanding the syntax verbally to see that it approximates the lyrics of the song.
    e.g.
    ! is the negation operation, commonly know as "not" so,
    better !pout !cry
    could be interpreted as passing "not pout" and "not cry" to function better, i.e. matching the lyric Better not pout, better not cry.

    "lpr why", is printing "why" to the printer, so the program is "telling you why".

    So on, and so forth...
