The Lyrics

Some say he was a lout, but his work knocks me out,
To South Seas he went down; in sun he browned,
On beach lie, what a guy, a great eye,

In Paris, drank booze and splattered on the hues,
When one painting’s done, do another one,
Then this guy off did fly to beach-lie,

After he was gone, van Gogh kept painting on. . .
no ’guin.
Paul not coming back, Gogh does an ear hack—
woe, Vince!
One more guy with great eye but self-die—
blow, Vince.

Neither guy can I buy—price too high—
