It's no use, he sees her
He starts to shake and cough
Just like that old man in
That book by Nabokov
It's nice when others do my work for me. Though I must add three things:
1) The cartoon character is being dense; everyone knows this is a reference to "Lolita" (probably the greatest novel ever written).
2) My bigger criticism is that it's an awkward and dumb way to reference "Lolita". Better than "Just like that old guy in that thingy with the, you know, pages and writing and stuff, by that Russian dude", but not much.
3) No, I was not beaten by a songwriter as a child.
