My students sang this on the bus ride to the Art Institute of Chicago while looking for signs of perspective and converging lines out the windows.


Karaoke version

Bye Bye Road

Bye bye road
Bye bye distant things
Hello close up things
Way up in the foreground

Bye bye road
Bye bye distant things
Hello close up things
Way up in the foreground
Bye bye stuff in the background

There goes those converging lines
Out to the point
They seem to be vanishing
Out in the joint

I can show depth using perspective
and relative sizes helps my objective
(Repeat all above)

Bye bye road
Bye bye distant things
Hello close up things
Way up in the foreground

Bye bye road
Bye bye distant things
Hello close up things

Way up in the foreground
Bye bye stuff in the background (3x's)
