From Count Andreas Petofi: Exceeding the Grasp, an autobiographical gift of letters, lore, and lyrics.  Volume III

Thus, my composition of “I Want to Dance with You” kept me living in high style for some time, but for those who sing it, the song induces psychic visions.  In this case, I was the victim!  I had quite successfully transformed Charity Trask into a music hall performer of the worst possible taste — a delightful revenge on the Collinses — but her vision of my own mutilation (which ended up being a total farce) was deeply inspirational.

That evening’s grave robbing was both strategically necessary and spiritually bolstering.  Great fun!
