Let me look that up

Currently, Queen II is playing in iTunes and I’m thinking back to when I originally bought the album, back in about 1978 or so, when I was 12 years old. (I discovered their music shortly after Jazz came out and subsequently used all of my allowance money to buy up all of their previous albums.)

At the time, I thought I’d had a good vocabulary (I had tested at the University level around the same time) but I’d had to go through the lyrics for “The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke” with a dictionary in hand. Tattedemalion, pedagogue, junketer, quaere, harridan, apothecary, ostler? What???? 

Wait!!!!  Am I supposed to know these? Is there a test later?
