Art Teacher





Nog eentje dan. Wel mijn geliefkoosde. In korte broek achter de piano zingen, beetje nasaal, geniaal lief en snedig.



There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then
He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum
He asked us what our favorite work of art was,
But never could I tell it was him
Oh, I wish I could tell him,
Oh, I wish I could have told him
I looked at the Rubens and Rembrandts
I liked the John Singer Sargents
He told me he liked Turner
Never have I turned since then
No, never have I turned to any other man
All this having been said,
I married an executive company head
All this having been done, a Turner, I own one
Here I am in this uniformish, pant-suit sort of thing,
Thinking of the art teacher
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then
No, never have I loved any other man

  1. Wow, dit spreekt me ontzettend aan....ik dacht even aan Philip Glas, bij zijn pianospel,de man, zijn stem én de song, prachtig, treffend en..krachtig!
