The lyrics to this great song contain the following lines:
I am goin’ to teach peace to the conquered,
I’m gonna tame the proud.
Lots of other people have apparently noticed this before, but I just realized that the lines are a paraphrase of some lines in the Aeneid, when Aeneas’s father, Anchises, in the Underworld, tells him what the mission of Rome will be:
. . . to establish peace,
To spare the humbled, and to conquer the proud.
Anchises’s speech also foretells the history of the early Roman kings.
