Children And Art Lyrics

You would have liked him
Mama, you would
Mama, he makes things
Mama, they're good
Just as you said from the start
Children and art
Children and art

He should be happy
Mama, he's blue
What do I do?

You should have seen it
It was a sight
Mama, I mean it
All color and light
I don't understand what it was
But, Mama, the things that he does
They twinkle and shimmer and buzz
You would have liked them

It... him... Henry! Henry! Henry...

[GEORGE, spoken]
It's George, grandmother

[MARIE, spoken]
Of course it is. I thought you were your father for a moment. Did I tell you who that was?

[GEORGE, spoken]
Of course. That is your mother

Isn't she beautiful?
There she is, there she is
There she is, there she is
Mama is everywhere
He must have loved her so much

[GEORGE, spoken]
Is she really in all those places, Marie?

This is our family, this is the lot
After I go, this is all that you've got, honey
Wasn't she beautiful, though?

You would have liked her
Mama did things no one had done
Mama was funny, Mama was fun
Mama spent money when she had none

Mama said, "Honey, mustn't be blue
It's not so much do what you like
As it is that you like what you do"
Mama said, "Darling, don't make such a drama
A little less thinking, a little more feeling"
I'm just quoting Mama!
The child is so sweet
And the girls are so rapturous
Isn't it lovely how artists can capture us?

[GEORGE, spoken]
Yes, it is, Marie

You would have liked her
Honey, I'm wrong
You would have loved her
Mama enjoyed things
Mama was smart
See how she shimmers?
I mean, from the heart

I know, honey, you don't agree
But this is our family tree
Just wait 'til we're there, and you'll see
Listen to me
Mama was smart
Listen to Mama
Children and art
Children and art
