When I go out with artists
They talk about language and the cubists and the dadaists
And I try to catch their meanings
And I try to keep up with all of the martinis
I don't know which should be my favorite painitings
If I could see, if I could see, if I could
See all the symbols, unlock what they mean
Maybe I could, maybe I could, maybe I
Could meet the artists, and get to know them personally
If I were David Byrne
I'd go to galleries and not be too concerned
Well I would have a cup of coffee
And I'd find my surroundings quite amusing and
People would ask me which were my favorite paintings
What if the artists ran the tv?
All the ads would be for find scotch whiskey:
Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, the whole single malt famlily
The artists of the future
Will make up new things and different nomenclatures
And they'll stand amonst their pictures
And they'll sing and laugh and quote from scriptures and
When they go home they'll dream of brilliant paintings
