Overview

The people of Saint Umberto are not hardhearted; but now and again, someone did drown; it was sad yes, but inevitable, being surrounded by ocean. Judy had no family beyond a drunken uncle, but she was popular with the young men of the island. It was taken for granted that she had drowned. In many other places, they might drag a body of water for a body just to be sure, but you couldn't very well drag the ocean. And the ocean generally cooperated by delivering the drowned body in question to the beach in a timely manner. So the people of Saint Umberto expressed their remorse, got on about their lives and waited for the ocean to bring closure. But this time the ocean did not cooperate.
And Don’t Hurry, Worry Me Chicken Avery loves to tell stories, and the one about Clarence Henry and his traveling pants is a good one with a proper moral. All Day, All Night, Marianne A young man, with the help of his not-too-literary friend, hopes to woo his true love in the classic manner before a fat lady sings.

This is most certainly from another world for me.  The multi-lyrics and strange Shakespeare's references, but catching.
