The Lyrics

What happens when a 157 year old Artistic Genius and an immortal Elf Princess go at it in a bar? It ain't pretty...
Mind-in’ my own biz at the bar
I hear a guy, from behind, “Who do you think you are?”
Oh he’s an artist (artist)
With a crazy ear scar
And he’s positive that I’m the one who just keyed his car

“D-d-d-Dude…you’ve had too much to drink
And you’re gonna get in trouble if you push me, I think!”
That’s what I tell him; looks like he’s on the brink
Though he’s a centenarian, I’m only kinda scared of him

He starts to slap me
He wants to cap me
He’s coming at me
Woah, woah, oh, oh

“Don’t punch, Van Gogh
Never crunch, Van Gogh
Don’t thump, Van Gogh
(Oh Van Gogh)
Don’t thump me!”

He starts to beat me
No way to treat me
Think he might eat me
Woah, woah, oh, oh

I hack Van Gogh
Fightin’ back, Van Gogh
I smash Van Gogh
(So Van Gogh)
Don’t smash me

Punches…throwin’ ‘EM with both hands
Bustin’ all the moves that this battle demands
Vince’s high kick
Puts me in a rage
Got red and purple ribs stickin’ out from my cage

B-b-b-bruises…cover my arms
Breakin’ all his fingers, as I’m stompin’ on his palm
“Artsy Fartsy?
Get your ass over here
Dude, I’m gonna CHOP off your other ear!”

I’m gonna lick him
I’m gonna kick him
Won’t know what hit him
Woah, woah, oh, oh

I crunch Van Gogh
Gonna punch Van Gogh
I’ll crush Van Gogh
(So Van Gogh)
Won’t crush me

I’m gonna pound him
I dance around him
My moves confound him
Woah, woah, oh, oh

I’ll slam Van Gogh
Gonna ram Van Gogh
I’ll wham Van Gogh
(So Van Gogh)
Don’t wham me

Vincent…picked the fight
Takin’ on a Princess, you know that ain’t right!

I said Vincent…picked the fight
But I won’t back down now, this could go all night!

I said, Vincent…picked the fight
Gonna shove his paintbrush, where there ain’t no light!

(Woah, woah, woah...)

He’s jabbin’ at me
He’s grabbin’ at me
He’s stabbin’ at me
Woah, woah, oh, oh

I duck, Van Gogh
Uppercut Van Gogh
Headbutt Van Gogh
(So Van Gogh)
Don’t cut me

Karate chop him
And then I pop him
I fin’ly stop him
Woah, woah, oh, oh

Last bite Van Gogh
“Not too bright, Van Gogh
Goodnight, Van Gogh
(Oh Van Gogh)
Don’t fight me!”

This was awesome! And I love this original song so it's great to see it coming from such a talent as yourself: "Gonna shove his paintbrush, where there ain’t no light!" was my favorite line!

That artsy fartsy bastard messed with the wrong princess! You give it to him girl! LOVED THIS!!

That was funny, hilarious idea, I didn't see that coming at all. "CHOP off his other ear!" LOL

Cute parody, especially fitting with the Van Gogh IMAX that was just released. 555 ears

(Decathlon Part 3 Round 10) Excellent job, Arwen... one of my favorite authors here duking it out with one of my favorite (painting, not recording) artists. Well-done overall, and 5s.

Mark...hee hee...thanks!

Matty...=) Glad you liked it...thanks!

Ash...LOL!!! You know how I feel about that word. Thanks, darling!!

Jefferoo...the important thing is that HE didn't see it coming, either...; ) Thanks!

Phil...I had no idea that there was an IMAX movie about Van Gogh just released. I love it when my parodies are unintentionally timely...=) so glad you liked, it...thanks!!

(Decath3R10) You sure put up a good fight with Van Gogh with this one, Arwen! One of these days, I'm going to spoof Don McLean's "Vincent (Starry Starry Night)" and convert it to "Starry, Starry Fight!" or "Bloody, Bloody, Fight" to respond to your parody. Watch out, or he'll be painting ya 5 black eyes, 5 bruises, and 5 scars!

Dec3R10- Nice job! Love the original song and you did a nice job spoofing it! A little weird to see Van Gogh in a fight, but nice job nonetheless!

"But as you perch there to throw down your bou-quet (Your bouquet) You know I’ll kick and scream And sweep the knee En-sure it’s me BUT I won’t freak out" HMMM, geez ARlick, seems your beatin your self up. Isn't that kinda a sTOOGES THING?
DJ Blaze - March 21, 2010 - Report this comment
I think if Van Gogh lived to read this, he'd chop off his other ear in embarrassment! Being the art fan I am, I loved this. 555
bobpiecheese - March 21, 2010 - Report this comment
(Dec3) Why am I getting the feeling that Van Gogh made an appearance just because it rhymed with the OS? Probably because that's what I would've done. 555 for beating the crap out of a dead painter!

(SOTM March 2010) Already voted, as seen above (in Decathlon 3, round 10) and it's still excellent.

Hmm Arwen, this one was kinda odd Arwen. . .First time hearing this original song, not sure how it became a billboard hit...but that's beside the point. I thought it was very well written and the pacing was amazing, but from a pure humor angle, it wasn't my favorite Arwen parody. . .but judging from above, I may be alone in that opinion--so good job

SOTM- To go with my previous comment, excellent job! Still a little weird to see Van Gogh kicking some ass, but
