The Lyrics

Michelangelo implored to do painting,
Michelangelo nixed floor. . .ceiling painting.

Sistine Chapel he then assailed. . .real hard painting,
On his back till eyesight near failed, nearly fainting.

The picture is deep and the picture is wide, a huge painting,
Green is just one color he tried in hued painting.

Michelangelo implored: lots of sainting,
Michelangelo spent four years on painting.

Sistine Chapel he had assailed. . .real hard painting,
After four years, he was quite pale, unlike painting.

That stone building was chilly and cold. . .winter painting,
And in August, like a hellhole. . .summer, fainting.

Michelangelo implored to do painting,
Thickened a strato*, years, scores--served as tainting.

Sistine Chapel was thus assailed; grime-hewed painting,
Spic and span as after year four. . .renewed painting.

The picture is deep and the picture is wide, a huge painting,
Mich got money from the Pope, who'd cried: "Hue this painting!"
