Picasso Visita el Planeta de Los Simios

For months I've already been downloading my CDs to my iPod. But haven't ever bought a single from iTunes until tonight. My very first: Adam Ant from '81 -- my favorite song on the "Prince Charming" album, which I bought new when I was 16, and not on the recent "Hits" that I just bought on CD. I still can't figure out what Ant's beef was with Picasso, or what the "bleach killer" had to do with it all...

After "Picasso," my next orders from iTunes: "Thrift Shop," "Love the Way You Lie," and "Gangnam Style."



See the Spaniard eating chocolates
See the Spaniard have a ball
See the Spaniard trust in no one
He's on quality street
He's on quality street

As the masters rot on walls
And the angels eat their grapes
I watched Picasso
Visit 'The Planet Of The Apes'

As the masters rot on walls
And the angels eat their grapes
I watched Picasso, Pablo Picasso
Visit 'The Planet Of The Apes'
(Yeah)

See the Spaniard seek companion
See the Spaniard take it all
See the Spaniard sell his friends out
He's on quality street
He's on quality street

And pretenders pretend
To their patronage lend
But it's the ones we don't see
That always fascinate me

As the masters rot on walls
And the angels eat their grapes
I watched Picasso
Visit 'The Planet Of The Apes'

As the masters rot on walls
And the angels eat their grapes
I watched Picasso, Pablo Picasso
Visit 'The Planet Of The Apes'
(Yeah)

As the real heroes died
And their ideas supplied
To a fat little magpie
With money in his eyes

They bowed and they scraped
As opinions he shaped
Now every little sketch a fortune will fetch
And the bleach killer kills
And the bleach killer kills, yeah

And as the masters rot on walls
(See the Spaniard sell the whole world)
