THE PAINTING
By┬ęBernardo Barreto

It was a bright and sunny Sunday in 1949
The clowns were in the plaza
And the horses were ready to run.
There was a young girl in the crowd
Her dress was shiny and red,
She was from Spain
And her father was recently dead.

I dreamed I was a bullfighter
And saw without a doubt
The shadow of Heminghway
He didn't recognize me
But in my dream he was the bull.

No one knew when I woke up
If I was alive or I was dead
The young girl dressed in red
Kissed me on the lips.

He's warm she said
This man is not really dead
And she took me to her room
Where a midget was fixing the red bed
And we jumped right into it
And proceeded to make love.

All the prostitutes lived there
And were regarded as holy saints
The only Church in town
Was named The Church Of the Holy Whore.

This town looked just like Venice
But the water in the canals was bloody red
Red as the lips of the lady from Spain
It was the blood of the beast they told me
We sacrifice it for the Gods.

I thought it was enough and I decided to wake up
I was now back in the city with a cocktail in my hand
Staring at the painting of a lady from Spain
It was an art reception of a painter from Japan
How could that be possible in 1949?

you can paint my
ears with your great lyrics, music and vox anytime brother...! Great stuff again.

good one!
You tell a great story, in a very interesting and unique voice. The accent and delivery reminded just a little of Cheech&Chong (meant as a compliment!)

The accompaniment is excellent - good combo of instruments, well-mixed.

This song has a real "atmosphere"; you can really sink your teeth into it! ;-)

I'll definitely check out your other tunes.

Good humour
in this song, which kept me listening even though I was reading the words at the same time. Love the atmosopheric sounds and that accented voice which has a ring of Bob Dylan about it I must say, nice one, regards M
