Parody Song Title:

"He Engulfed the Reichstag, Skillful Christo"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

He engulfed the Reichstag, skillful Christo. . .
fabric very tight.
One year he did “Running Fence”;
was quite a sight.

He engulfed some islands, skillful Christo,
that sat in a bay.
One year he wrapped many yards
of a walkway.

In scale his works were far away
from largest paintings by scores.
He did the huge “Valley Curtain”;
wrapped the Pont Neuf near Seine’s shore.

He and Jeanne-Claude were birds of a feather
and she was his frau.
Though she’s gone, his work would still go on, he vowed.
Plans to engulf the Arkansas River somehow.
