The Lyrics

It's all greek to me.....
Something not right at the sight of that woman in statue
Something amiss and a-missing when I saw her there
She was disarming
It was disturbing, but she still looked pretty good bare

Trag-e-dy De Milo
Am-pu-tee, De Milo
On that stand, that sculpture was still quite grand
And I stood there wishing I could give her a hand

I walked away and I ended my stay, that museum
I kept on hoping that I'd find her limbs on a tray
She was so helpless
Went home and molded some arms from pottery clay

Met my goal, De Milo
Now you're whole, De Milo
Now I'm gone, locked up, turned into a con
Just gave you, De Milo what someone forgot to paste on
Just gave you, De Milo what someone forgot to paste on

Terrific! Now if you can help Vincent out with that ear thing...

Hey, Lee's right, Rick --- why don't you write one about replacing Van Gogh's ear? You can use your favorite Don McLean song --- "Vincent" (sounds of Rick Duncan screaming "NO! NO! NOOOOOOO!!!!")

I take it "Greece" is NOT the word.

:-) (I've just spent the last couple of minutes trying to think how to do a De Milo smiley - one without arms - but given up). Brilliant, Rick.

Isn't there a sign in front of that statue that says, "Hands Off"? :D
