Troll counting

Statement
The program:
As Terry Pratchett explains in Men At Arms:
"Trolls traditionally count like this: (...) one, two, three... many (...) many-one, many-two, many-three, many-many, many-many-one, many-many-two, many-many-three, many-many-many, many-many-many-one, many-many-many-two, many-many-many-three, LOTS."
From there we can extrapolate a the following extra rules:
- after LOTS comes LOTS-one then LOTS-two and so on
- after LOTS-many-many-many-three comes LOTS-LOTS, then LOTS-LOTS-one, and so on
- after LOTS-LOTS-LOTS-many-many-many-three comes LOTS-LOTS-LOTS-LOTS, then LOTS-LOTS-LOTS-LOTS-one and so on (because trolls' imagination only gets them so far)

Given a number, your program must simply output the troll version of it.
INPUT:
Line 1: a single number N

OUTPUT:
Line 1: the troll version of N

CONSTRAINTS:
1<=N<=1000
