Picasso's Mandolin (Clark Guy)

Like 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 load my brush and fire away Paint me a hole in the light of day Well, you can play it straight or play it from left field You got to play it just the way you feel Come on boys, play it again Play it on Picasso's mandolin Well, it's colorin' books and drinkin' wines It’s hard to stay between the lines Now there ain’t no rule if you don't break it Ain’t no chance if you don't take it Said the damndest thing he'd ever heard Was tryin' to learn to sing from a mockingbird Well, you can play it straight or play it from left field You got to play it just the way you feel Come on boys, play it again Play it on Picasso's mandolin Like Picasso said before he died “There’s one more paintin' I'd like to try” Well, the doctor held his breath And then Picasso nailed a mandolin He’s born in Spain and died in France He was not scared of baggy pants Well, you can play it straight or play it from left field You got to play it just the way you feel Come on boys, play it again Play it on Picasso's mandolin Play it straight or play it from left field You got to play it just the way you feel Come on boys, play it again Play it on Picasso's mandolin
