Fun For All The Family

The Monochrome Set

The painter was dismissed today
We paid him off and put him away
He'd drawn us true to life and then
He'd just refused to do it again

For we were not amused at all
To see a painting upon the wall
Which clearly showed what fools were we
To jealously guard a pedigree

We were all so very concerned
To see the commoners never learned
That inter-breeding could be blamed
For the decline of the regal brain

Indeed the blood was truly blue
But thinner with time, alas, we knew
Now we are all a little insane
And life can never be the same

Mister Goya, we all declare
Was most unkind and very unfair
To paint us in the way he did
As if the royals had lost their lids

Damn it all, the family pets
Were made to look a safer bet
Because we give a regal hoot
Somebody always cocks a snoot
