The Lyrics

Gauguin had to Gogh go,
Gauguin had to Gogh go,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Yeah it was in that Paris town
Where these two painters hung around.
One of them born right there.
The other came from where
The sea is higher than the ground.

Gauguin had to Gogh go, 'cause his buddy
Was kind of a schmoe, supported by Theo,
So, Gauguin had to Gogh go,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Gauguin had to Gogh go, because Vince was
Actin' like a baby, startin' to whine.
Gauguin had to Gogh go.

Prolific painters both men are,
But then Gauguin becomes the star,
And Vincent is quite shocked
Because by Paul he's mocked,
Then Gauguin decides to go far.

Goin' not to Togo; that's not where he went.
To Tahiti Gau' goes, Pacific South;
He really wants to go, wants to get out,
With Vince always yelling.

Gauguin had found van Gogh a drag, yeah,
'cause he was draggin' him like an anchor.
Vince, like a needy son,
Had caused Gauguin to run
And escape Vincent's whining and rancor.

Gauguin had to Gogh go. . .Vince wieldin' razor.
Van Gogh did some oto-
plasty, and then Gogh's goes,
So Gauguin said, "Gogh, go! I'll split now."
So he hit the road, yeah,
Gauguin was a no-show.

If Guaguin brough Vince to a Go-Go joint, they both would've been happy. 555
