So now I have found the libretto online, and no such text as shown above exists. What can possibly be the explanation? I don't believe I could have dreamed it, it's far too lucid.

I wouldn't exclude the possibility that they were dropped?  The Gertrude Stein texts are somewhat in the same vein as Edith Sitwell's poetry...   words that are primarily presented for the nice sounds they make, rather than for any 'meaning' which accrues from performing those words in a specific order.
