ut queant laxis
  140

Ut queant laxis is the restlessness of the Hymn to St. John the Baptist written in Latin by Paul the Deacon (eighth century). The greatest importance of this work lies in being the origin of the names for the musical notes in solfeggio, which is explained in the entries ut queant laxis ( 1 ) and ut queant laxis ( 2 ) ( which will not appear in the search engine when typing this verse ). The translation doesn't make much sense if we don't complete the stanza a little more, so Ut queant laxis resonare fibris is interpreted as "May the echoes [voices] of our guts expand."
