"Portrait" as written by and Duke Special....
Paint my picture if you must
Please remember to be kind
But darlin', your broken heart
Was never on my mind

Paint me with a villain heart
Like some cruel valentine
But darlin', your broken heart
Was never on my mind

And when you feel the clash
And you don't want me around
Could you endure the rasp
As my kisses filled with fibre-glass rain down?

Heavy as a humming bird
But more difficult to find
Darlin', your broken heart
Was never on my mind

Clumsy as a rag time clown
Or some dancing Frankenstein
Darlin', your broken heart
Was never on my mind

So pull that canvas down
Beneath this angry moon
As you endure the sound
Of one more singer singing out of tune

Paint my picture if you must
Not forgetting to be kind
But darlin' your broken heart
Was never on my

Darlin' your broken heart
Was never on my
Darlin' your broken heart
Was never on my mind

    General CommentAccording to Duke himself, this song is about "pissing someone off before they are about to take a lovely picture of you, which might not turn out to be so lovely!"
