The Lyrics

I don't whine and rant on Rubens or Rembrant
I like van Gogh and Monet and Gauguin
and Turner, Gainsborough while their style, it can be rough
are classics which you surely understand

But I find it hard regard the modern art
as anything called "art" after all
like canned artist's poop or endless movie loop
or peanut butter spread on floor of hall

Domestic or abroad - the modern art is fraud
It's crappy and it's vulgar, that's the case -
It is unskilled and flawed, that modern art that's fraud
It's smelly and it's ugly and debase

You can kill a shark or a thing that'll moo or bark
and eat its meat and use its bones and hide
but it becomes a work of art when you tear it apart
and pickle it in formaledhyde

Now if I take a john, the thing that you pee on
and call it work of art you think I'm loon
but if you have some name, then you can play that game
and be a honcho in the art commune

Domestic or abroad - the modern art is fraud
It's crappy and it's vulgar, that's the case -
It is unskilled and flawed, that modern art that's fraud
It's smelly and it's ugly and debase

Domestic or abroad - the modern art is fraud
It's crappy and it's vulgar, that's the case -
It is unskilled and flawed, that modern art that's fraud
It's smelly and it's ugly and debase

My standard always was: if I can duplicate it, it ain't art. Only Rembrandt can paint a Rembrandt. But Jackson Pollack looks like the old roof we tore off the house and threw in the yard before putting up the new one. No doubt you heard of the Madonna (mother of Jesus, not the tramp singer) made from elephant dung, and the man who placed a crucifix in a jar of urine and called it "art". One of the news networks showed an art exhibit that consisted of a new vacuum cleaner placed on a pedestal in a gallery. Someone actually paid thousands of dollars for it. A nice vacuum cleaner does represent a branch of art called "industrial design", but the "artist" who sold this example bought it for a couple hundred dollars at a department store. In the 1930's the Nazis staged an exhibition of "decadent art" as contrasted with "Aryan art". Some of the surviving "decadent" paintings and sculptures survived the war (just because the Nazis disapproved of the stuff didn't mean they disapproved of foreigners who would give them money for it), and were the subject of an exhibition recently reported on the TV news. You know what? A lot of those paintings really are decadent. And the Aryan propaganda works do represent genuine artistic skill.
