Parody Song Title:

"La Vie en Pose"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Hold that pose and make it last,
I cannot draw too fast.
This is la vie en pose.

It must be hurting your thigh
To keep it held so high. . .
Downside of vie en pose.

Keep pressed to your head your arm
I'm sorry you're not warm;
There's a draft in this room.

See how I drop pots of paint from above
Keep that posture while I play Pollock. What's wrong?
Your expression's scolding me--
Impressionistically you see your pose.
