The Painted Word (Reprise)

This song is by Television Personalities and appears on the album The Painted Word (1984).

If I wanted to I'd write a book
But it would take some time
I'd spend my life writing poetry
Thinking of words that have to rhyme
I just haven't got the time
I just haven't got the time

Observe
The Painted Word

The Painted Word
I just haven't got the time
I can't be bothered to think of words that have to rhyme

Take some paint
Take some canvas
Take a brush
Take your colour
Show me what you feel
Show me what you feel inside

Who needs Picasso?
Who needs Brecht?


Who needs Van Gogh?
Who needs Vasarely?
I'll paint what I damn well want to

Fifteen minutes Mr. Warhol, fifteen minutes
Now?
Fifteen minutes
Now?
Show me what you see
I see a tree, two children and a car
A large sign that says "Coca-Cola"
What colour is the car?
The colour of your dream
What colour is my dream?
Orange
Can I share my dream?
Yes

Can't hate
To paint the time
