Van Gogh paints a picture
Of sunflowers out in a field
Lennon writes a melody with words
About love and peace

What do they know
Says the big fat man
From the elephant show

You won't get further than the Malt Mill baby
The paint's too bright and your beat's not steady

It's not quite right
Go do it again
If you can
Just do it again

It's not quite right
Go do it again
If you can
Just do it again
Just do it again

Shakespeare pens a sonnet
Says it's his best by far
Newton finds that force is equal
Til you push them apart

But what do they know
Says the two faced lady
From the elephant show

You won't get further than a gig at the docks
Your words don't rhyme and that cradle won't rock
