The Lyrics:
Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
... Well the girls would turn the color of the avacado
When he drove down their street
in his El Dorado
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not like you
Well he was only five foot three
But girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not in New York
... He was only five foot three but the girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso was never called and asshole
Not like you
Who They Mention:
Pablo Picasso, famous 20th c. Spanish modernist painter & womanizer. Funny: rhyme avocado with El Dorado, vision of sexual attraction, mockery of listeners' inadequacy, reasons cited for making song about Picasso Not in New York, where everyone gets called ...
