People did not like that man Max Ernst
(The Blessed Virgin Chastises the Infant Jesus)
He was so irrational Max Ernst
(garden airplane-trap, garden airplane-trap)

The pleasures of the sight
The pleasures of the flesh
The vanities of life
He loved them all

In the pretty house they go away
(in the pretty house; in the pretty house)
In that pretty house they do not stay
(not in the pretty house; not in the pretty house)

In the burning sea
In the laughing lights
In the luminous sea
In the brash gold night

In the turtle's head I blacked out fast
In the city's halls always it laughed
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
HA HA HA HA HA HA

Dada
Dada
Dada
Dada
Dada

    General CommentDo an image search sometime on "The Blessed Virgin Chastises the Infant Jesus". Fair warning: this Ernst painting is fairly shocking, even by modern standards.
