I don't do drugs, I am drugs
That's what he says, and I believe him
He paints on sleepless hallucinations
Crazy Sal, that Andalusian dog

"I am Un Chien Andalou!"
The crazy man cries out in his ecstasies
Locks himself alone with just a canvas
Some paintbrushes, makes a dream landscape

He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman
He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman

"Be mad," he tells all his admirers
Grasshoppers scare him out of his mind
His wife is mad enough as well
Met her in a room full of surrealists

He wakes up in the morning, looks around
Wonders what prodigious thing
That he'll do today, this Mr. Dali
The world is your insane canvas

He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman
He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman

Honey is sweeter than blood
That's what he titled his painting
The difference between him and a madman
Is the fact that he's not mad

He builds a red lobster telephone
It makes enough sense to him
Crazy Sal, that brilliant sane madman
Un Chien Andalou!

He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman
He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman
He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman
He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman
He's the lunatic painter
He's the sane madman
He's the lunatic painter!
He's the sane madman!
