Yes, and the Beatles were quite handy with polyptoton:

Please Please me

Nothing you can do that can't be done
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung

And of course, Shakespeare was fond of it too: 

Love is not Love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.


and

Grace me no grace, nor uncle me no uncle

Thank me no thankings, nor proud me no prouds.

Now reading a book called "It Happened in a Holden".
It's a pictorial, coffee-table style book with photographs of Holdens and their owners and the stories they tell about their iconic Australian cars.
I am the proud owner of a 1962 Holden ute which has been in the family since new. It's still going strong after 55 years and is my daily drive carrying blacksmith gear.
And as the title implies, lots of things happened in a Holden.  :o
