Painting I'm painting blue lines I'm painting green lines I'm painting red lines Yes, I'm painting, I'm painting my ground I'm painting straight lines I'm painting curved lines I'm painting crooked lines Yes, I'm painting, I'm getting around One of these days the light will be fine One of these days I'll let it shimmer and shine That'll be the day I'll work it all out That'll be the day you will lose your doubt Yes, one of these days you will stand in line Shapes and colours shapes and colours impress the world with shapes and colours I'm painting tiny little dots I'm painting bigger dots I'm painting huge dots Yes, I'm painting, I'm painting it all I'm painting triangles I'm painting rectangles I'm painting octagons Yes, I'm painting, I'm having a ball One of these days the light will be fine One of these days I'll let it shimmer and shine That'll be the day I'll work it all out That'll be the day you will lose your doubt Yes, one of these days you will stand in line Shapes and colours shapes and colours impress the world with shapes and colours One of these days I'll spread it all out One of these days I'll make you scream and shout That´ll be the day I will shake your spine One of theses days I'll be your clown divine There are so many things I can do I paint with juice and I paint with glue My pictures are getting bigger every time One of these days I will drink your wine Shapes and colours shapes and colours impress the world with shapes and colours... Oh yes!

Meeting People (written by Halfblind Henry) The other night I met Lili Marleen standing in the feeble lantern light I said: “I heard people talk about you” she said: “you better get the story right I never made a soldier happy that ain´t my style that ain´t my class I'm just standing here because they pay me as I'm waiting for the dark age to pass” I saw touchy Cinderella sitting in the hippest bar downtown Babbling on the phone, in her squeaky voice I could see she had rehearsed her perfect frown “You know the prince that I was dating he was a jerk and I just had to quit and those shoes he proudly gave me they weren't cool andf they didn't even fit” Down by the creek I met Long John Silver killing water rats with his wooden crutch I asked him about the famous treasure map He said: “Another case of clever retouch You know a dead man can keep a secret and this one here, he surely will So you may dig that hole a little deeper I've got another rat to kill” So what's the moral where there is no story? Except to say that nothing's what it seems You're obliged not to talk about it once you get a glimpse behind the scenes As you try to get along with everybody you're mistaken by the people that you meet Some of us are busy writing memoirs some of us will make a living on the street
