"I've F**ked Up the Face"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

A slightly exaggerated account of my demonstrable ineptitude in a figure-drawing class.
I've f**ked up the face;
I can't forge neck or eyes in place.
It's ghastly dreck--
Is that a girl or he?
Smudged smile's looking otherworldly.
A wreck!
Yuck, yuck, yuck. . . .

Bad, it seems, is my forte;
I blight the pad with a moiré.
Damn! I should never have been there:
A class where sits a team with flare--
No dreck.
No, no, no. . . .

Yawing, messed lines are yawing.
You call this drawing?!
The hack's domain.

I have several blown,
The lines adrift;
I should have known
I couldn't shift
My thinking left to right.
My druthers: words to go and write. . .
A lift
Up, up, up. . . .

Scrawling, then I'd be scrawling,
'cause that's my calling--
The hack's domain.

I'm drunk, deemed "shitfaced,"
Which makes me get my lines misplaced,
But I don't fret and go on churlishly,
And when I gawk it's words I see,
Not etched
Lines, lines, lines. . . .

Falling, yes I am falling
The Black Jack wain.

Mauling, yes I am mauling
The page with galling,
Inane refrains.

Scrawling, yes I am scrawling
Lines that I'm calling
From wracked right brain.

Oh scrawling, yes I am scrawling
Lines quite appalling. . .
A hack and bane.

Didn't think I'd have to wait 'til nealy the very last line for the inevitable "right brain" allusion, but at least it was in there. Meanwhile, I recommend shelving the whiskey as and alcoholic artistic assist and seeking instead the reliable consolation of some good whisky: Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Caol Isla, and Talisker never fail. :-) 555 drams for you.

Forget art and do writing. It is less expensive because all you need is a paper and pencil.

I didn't comment on this. Another Eagle did. As for me, I don't think I know this song very well.
