Valéry Giscard d’Estaing (L) and Arnold Stang (R). Identical cousins?

Valéry has lived most everywhere,
From la Tour Eiffel to Napoléon Square.
But Arnie’s only seen the sights
A guy can see from Brooklyn Heights -
What a crazy pair!

But they’re cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Valéry adores a minuet,
The Ballets Russes, and crêpes Suzette,
Our Arnie loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes him lose control -
What a wild duet!

Still, they’re cousins,
Identical cousins and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike -
You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind!
