Lyrics

I met a Frenchman in a field last night He was out there with an easel, painting carnival light He said, `I used to paint the princess; I used to paint the frogs Now I paint moustaches on dangerous dogs` He said, `Sometimes it`s a country; sometimes it`s a girl You know, everybody got to have a purpose in this world You Yankees are so silly about matters of the heart Don`t you know that women are the only works of art You`re drivin` with your eyes closed You`re drivin` with your eyes closed You`re drivin` with your eyes closed You`re gonna hit somethin` But that`s the way it goes` Some guys were born to Rimbaud Some guys breath Baudelaire Some guys just got to go and put their rockets everywhere You can breed `em by the thousands; you can trick and you can train Just look at all those poor dogs that are dragged down by the Seine How many arrows must I shoot into the blue? Ah, you little maniac, I`m crazy over you Before `The Death of Lovers` and `The Punishment of Pride` Let`s go scrape across the terrazzo It`s just too hot outside
