Never, Never Be An Artist lyrics

Never, Never Be An Artist

VERSE

Some think an artist's life could never be sad
Some think an artist's life could only be bad.
When people ask about la vie de boheme,
What do we, what do we say to them?

REFRAIN

Never, never be an artist
If you think you can make one cent.
Never, never be an artist
If you've no one to pay your rent.
Never, never be an artist
If you like roast beef called "prime."
Never, never be an artist
Unless you want to have a marvelous time,
Unless you want to have a marvelous time.

PATTER

You can think what you please,
You can state what you please,
You can like what you please,
You can hate what you please,
You can taste what you please,
You can try what you please,
You can do ev'rything but buy what you please.
You can date what you please,
You can please what you please,
You can charm what you please,
You can tease what you please,
You can land what you please,
You can trick what you please,
You can give to or get from a chick what you please.

REFRAIN 2


Never, never be an artist
If you think you can make one cent.
Never, never be an artist
If you've no one to pay your rent.
Never, never be an artist
If a pauper's grave you fear.
Never, never be an artist
Unless you want to have a happy career,
Unless you want to have a happy career.

You can wake when you please,
You can sleep when you please,
You can laugh when you please,
You can weep when you please,
You can laze when you please
Or be spray when you please,
You can do ev'rything but die when you please.
You can wash when you please,
You can shave when you please,
Be discreet when you please,
Misbehave when you please,
You can flirt when you please,
Take a chance when you please
You can put on or take off your pants when you please.


REFRAIN 3
Never, never be an artist
If you think you can make one cent.
Never, never be an artist
If you've no one to pay your rent.
Never, never be an artist
If you're faithful to your wife.
Never, never be an artist
Unless you want to have a wonderful life,
Unless you want to have a wonderful life,
Unless you want to have a wonderful life,
Unless you want to have a wonderful life,
Unless you want to have a wonderful life,
Unless you want to have a wonderful life,
Wonderful life.
