Art Brut – Modern Art lyrics

Modern art
Makes me
Want to rock out

So I'm in the Tate
And I'm looking at Hockney
And wow!
There's something about that blue
Amazes me when I step outside
Oh I'm losing my time
Sweet Jesus, my heart
Is beating faster and faster
I'm palpating
I'm sweating
I just can't help myself
I just can't help myself

Modern art
Makes me
Want to rock out

So I'm in the Pompidou
That's in Paris
And the French
They are far more laid back about their art galleries
There's little children running around
I see a piece by Matisse
There's my window of opportunity
I take four steps back
I bow my head down
And I run at it!

Modern art
Makes me
Want to rock out
