The Lyrics

The last day of our week of tributing ABBA for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Monday, March 15, 2010. ... OS video here.

Art class is special; they gath-er the kids on the floor
And we little folks creatively learn and explore
A few might have talent, so wondrous to see
But most of the rest are exactly like me
Can't draw even a box
But with news-print, my poster board rocks!

So I say
Thank you for the glue sticks; With tape and scissors
We can all be artwork wizards
There's no doubt about it, I say in all modesty
Warhol, indeed!
Pop-art collage from "Teen Beat" magazine
Shows I was born to be a beatnik
In SoHo gallery

Brother was always the fav'rite, to go by the talk
The first to say "Mama/Daddy", to pull up or walk
Good-looking, athletic, so witty and smart
But he'll just be nothing when I am an art-
-ist who's famous and rich
I'll just shrug and say, "Ain't ... life a b*tch?"

Then I'll say
Thank you for the visit-- I must be going
Clients called for private showing
Wine and cheese reception, then Arts Guild Fundraiser Ball
And that's not all
I have a mur-al to paint at the mall
So please forgive me--very busy--
Tell Mom and Dad I'll call

And as for Chucky, tell him this girl's songs won't be there
I am the King of Art, not being snotty
Got employed: portrait: wife, guy in France!

Thank you for the glue sticks; In prayers, I'll mention
Promise of adult redemption
Though I have no talent, our modern art is so free
They'll tout my depth and my pro- -fundity
I'll be an Oprah "Best of New" pick
The toast of NYC

To think it started with a glue stick
My teacher gave to me!

Sometimes you do wonder about what is considered art. Great ABBA tribute again. By the time the week is done, this will be Mama Mia 2.

A very good "paste-tiche"! Where did you go to school? Was it...Boston Collage? ;D

Last Friday I attended an exhibition of art by local elementary and junior high school students. I am amazed at how many talented artists there are out there, not just painters but in ceramics and wood as well. As a conservative, I always preferred representational art. Abstract is, well, too abstract. My negative definition: if I can duplicate it, it's "not" art.

A veritable cohesive collage of cool with nary a snippet of delaminating meter, or verbal dehissance--and most importantly, utterly faithful to that ABBA rhyme scheme!

Art is anything you can get away with, said Warhol. And ABBA's induction is proof of Andy's maxim.

Cutting and pasting thanks to Mark Scotti, T1K, OMR (lol!), Patrick (I'm kind of with you on that one...), OAGS (indeed!), John Barry (oooh... zing!) ;), and Phil Nelson (thank you! We'd be happy to autograph one of our limited edition prints for you, if you wish...) ;)

I always keep an open mind to all kinds of artistic expression and your parody is quite entertaining.
