"For Whistler, White Don't Work"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

For Whistler, white don't work
'cause the paintin's "Arrangement in
Gray and Black," so white's wrong.

His mom sits in a room;
She looks her best the way she's dressed:
Visage and vestment long.

It's known to me and you
As "Whistler's Mother"; few
Take the trouble to use the full
Title; the nickname's quicker; see:

Whittled to a mon'ker
That beats "Arrangement in Gray and
Black: The Artist's Mother."
