lyrics

I've never met the man personally
but my professor in art school said she met him once at a thing
How can somebody be seen universally
but fly under the radar when I drop his name on my friends

I can imagine him there in his studio
surrounded by zeppelins cars and unsinkable boats
Washing a brush he will turn and look down at the street
see the bright yellow taxis, the red of a street vendor's rose

That I've seen a lot doesn't mean anything
there are so many that I've never seen

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall

I went to his residence on the upper west side
to witness the urban absurdist at work in his home
He wasn't there but I knew that he wouldn't mind
if I broke in and smelled all his furniture and ate from his stove

Doing this lifted my spirits in ways that I cannot describe
And at once the ideas began to flood into my mind
Soon I'd amassed a collection of canvases
Each a perfect realistic depiction of a witty punchline

But there's still this one thing I need to know
after he signs the thing where does it go?

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall

people say illustration is a lesser form of art
I think that people have the horse behind the cart

how can a giant pink heel be a luxury
condominium? that's not a question he asks of himself
how can a fluttering leaf be a parking ticket?
the same way that a castaway separates paper from glass

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall

People say illustration is a lesser form of art
I say people are stupid

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall

where does he put them all
where does he put them all
Bruce McCall
