Paul Cezanne

5 Chinese BrothersBuy this song

Well, I love Cubism, it's my favorite style 

When I see a Cubist painting I've just got to smile 

But there's one painter, I'm his biggest fan 

He's the father of Cubism and his name's Cezanne, Cezanne 

Cezanne, Cezanne, the father of Cubism 

Some people say that it was Picasso 

Other people claim it was DeChirico 

Some people think it was Modiglian(i) 

But they're all crazy, it was Paul Cezanne, Cezanne 

Cezanne, Cezanne, the father of Cubism 

When Paul Cezanne sat down to paint a flower or a face 

He had to solve one problem, three-dimensional space 

He said, "Form is content." He smoked a Gitanne. 

He was right. Now he's Paul Cezanne, Cezanne 

Cezanne, Cezanne, le père de Cubisme 

Well Cezanne's father wanted him to be an avocat 

But Paul just looked at him and said, "Pfff, mais non, pa. 

I want to be a painter, I know I can!" 

Now his oeuvre's in the Louvre, he's Paul Cezanne, Cezanne 

Cezanne, Cezanne, the father of Cubism 

Well I had an aunt and she was in a coma 

So we loaded up her bed and we took her up to MoMA 

We got through the door, you wouldn't believe what began 

She sat up and started screaming, "Hey, where is that Paul Cezanne?" 

Cezanne, Cezanne, the miraculous father of Cubism 

Paul Cezanne is famous now and I think that's really nice 

'Cause his melons look like footballs and his apples look like dice 

So all you would-be painters, get out your brush and can 

You may be the next Paul Cezanne, Cezanne 

Cezanne, Cezanne, the father of Cubism 

Cezanne, Cezanne, the original father of Cubism
