Heart and soul  

I love the tonic,

The minor relative,

Then the subdominant,

And then I love the fifth.

Boom de yada,

Boom de yada.

Nuværende musik: I - vi - IV - V

I always heard the vi chord called the "submediant," though of course "relative minor" makes perfect sense, too—and the latter is far easier to find a nonmusical picture to express, no doubt.

...the minor fall, the major lift...

Your link to the original isn't, I don't think. I seem to remember singing the original as a child.

Hm. Good point. I guess I meant 'original' only in the sense of 'version that inspired xkcd,' which is a rather limited sense of the word....
