The best you can do has been put to sleep
There is art in you, there is art in you
Your hands do not advertise naturally,
There is more to you, there is more to you
Commercials do not tell our story
(There is more to you, there is more to you)
The new folk art will be you, you and me
(There is more to you, there is more to you)
If I taught you some chords, would you teach me to paint
Over the things that I don't want anymore?
If I taught you some chords, would you teach me to paint
Over the things that I don't want anymore?
When we all know the chords and we all get the paint
Yeah, we can all make some noise, yeah we can all make some noise
When we all know the chords
The song that we sing will have meaning
The song that we sing will have meaning
The song that we sing will have meaning
The song that we sing will have meaning

    General CommentFrom the CD booklet:

    "There's a popular misconception that the world of High Art is ahead of mass culture but everything in our research shows that, instead of being avant garde, it's derriere. Look at our poster that compares the number of women in jobs traditionally held by men to the number of women showing in major art galleries. The art world is a lot more macho than the post office."
