Picasso's Mandolin Lyrics

Artist: Guy Clark
Album: Boats to Build

Picasso said in 1910
I'm gonna paint me a mandolin
Could be cubes it could be curves
I like to mix the paint with nerve
I'm gonna load my brush and fire away
Paint me a hole in the light of day

Chorus

You can play it straight or play it from left field
You got to play it just the way you feel
Come on boys and play it again
Play it on Picasso's mandolin

Well it's colorin' books and drinkin' wine
ItÅ  hard to stay between the lines
AinÅ  no rule if you don't break it
AinÅ  no chance if you don't take it
He said the damndest thing he ever heard
Was tryin' to learn to sing from a mockingbird

Chorus

Picasso said before he died
ThereÅ  one more paintin' I'd like to try
The doctor held his breath and then
Picasso nailed a mandolin
HeÅ  born in Spain and died in France
He was not scared of baggy pants

Chorus
