"In a trice" in lyrics
And we went crazy pretty crazy pretty crazy pretty crazy I came and I hitted myself and against the wall
I grabbed her and didn't show off baby you let loose in a trice

It was jammed in the ice, but I saw in a trice it was called the 'Alice May.'
And I looked at it, and I thought a bit, and I looked at my frozen chum;
The clock was striking fourteen hundred, it was like a cue.
