The Lyrics

Braque's "Man with Guitar" can be seen at
Just got back from London, Lloyds,
Got at auction, oh boy "Man with Guitar,"
And it's not one that's forged.
You need imagination to see. . .fragmentation.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, lookin' at my Braque, Georges.

Is the guitar doin' cartwheels?
Does the player wear high heels?
Look at all those craggy features;
It's like drugs I'm on.
It looks like a banjo marred
By a tremelo bar.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, lookin' at my Braque, Georges.

Is this man a soloist or has he got a band?
Has he got a slide for a high blues tune,
Bluesy tune?
Fractured apparition by fantastic technician.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, lookin' at my Braque, Georges.

The artist was a cubist, a member of a band
That includes Pablo, [Juan] Gris, [Fernand] Leger--some crew. . .
Cubist crew.
Bought it--had to borrow cash to fill a wheelbarrow.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, bookin' with my Braque, Georges.

Forged the check to London, Lloyds;
On it they will stamp "VOID,"
But I am a happy creature
Because soon I'm gone. . .
Bahamas tomorrow, with all the cash I borrowed.
Flew, flew, flew took the bank and Braque, Georges.

This was brilliant--and gave me flashbacks to my 20th Century Art History class back in the late 70s in college. 555, and can we have the next slide please?
