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
