The Lyrics

Braque's "Man with Guitar" can be seen at http://www.artchive.com/artchive/B/braque/man_guit.jpg.html
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?
