Don’t Let That Horse

Don’t Let That Horse

Narrated by Roger Netzer

Connecticut

Don’t let that horse
                              eat that violin
 
    cried Chagall’s mother
 
                                     But he   
                      kept right on
                                     painting
 
And became famous
 
And kept on painting
                              The Horse With Violin In Mouth
 
And when he finally finished it
he jumped up upon the horse
                                        and rode away   
          waving the violin
 
And then with a low bow gave it
to the first naked nude he ran across
 
 
And there were no strings   
                                     attached
