It took a while, but I finally got around to digging out and
listening to Stonewall Jackson sing Waterloo. The pronoun

Speaking of "they," I was trying to remember which pronoun occurred in the
chorus of this CW song from the late fifties (early sixties):
Waterloo, I love you.
Waterloo, whachya gonna do?
Everybody has ____ day,
Everybody has to say,
Everybody's gonna meet ______ Waterloo.
Or something like that.
When will you
Meet your waterloo?
Everybody has their day,
Everbody ???????? (rhyme with day)
Everybody's got to meet their Waterloo.
I didn't think you were as old as I, Wayne.
