Words and music: jonathan richman

Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes
This never happened to pablo picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and
So pablo picasso was never called an asshole

Well the girls would turn the color
Of the avacado when he would drive
Down their street in his el dorado
He could walk down you street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo picasso never got called an asshole
Not like you
Alright

Well he was only 5'3"
But girls could not resist his stare
Pablo picasso never got called an asshole
Not in new york

Oh well be not schmuck, be not abnoxious,
Be not bellbottom bummer or asshole
Remember the story of pablo picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo picasso was never called an asshole
Alright this is it

Some people try to pick up girls
And they get called an asshole
This never happened to pablo picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and so
Pablo picasso was never called...
