Nicole's Smile

If Leonardo da Vinci knew Nicole,
He wouldn't have painted Mona Lisa at all;
Nicole would have made a lasting impression;
Her smile would have been his lifelong obsession.

If Buonarroti Michelangelo knew Nicole,
He wouldn't have painted Sistine Chapel at all;
Nicole would have made a lasting impression;
Her smile would have been his lifelong obsession.

If Harmenszoon van Rijn Rembrandt knew Nicole,
He wouldn't have painted Bathsheba at all;
Nicole would have made a lasting impression;
Her smile would have been his lifelong obsession.

If Vincent van Gogh knew Nicole,
He wouldn't have painted Sunflowers at all;
Nicole would have made a lasting impression;
Her smile would have been his lifelong obsession.

If Pierre Auguste Renoir knew Nicole,
He wouldn't have painted By The Seashore at all;
Nicole would have made a lasting impression;
Her smile would have been his lifelong obsession.

If Pablo Picasso knew Nicole,
He wouldn't have painted The Lovers at all;
Nicole would have made a lasting impression;
Her smile would have been his lifelong obsession.

I fortunately happen to know Nicole
But don't know how to paint at all,
Otherwise her portraits would be in galleries,
And men would buy them with their salaries.
