The Painter - Chris De Burgh

like I'd you to meet my last queen

 

Over there large as life

 

She's been hanging there for almost a week

 

My poor late wife

 

What do think of the colour of her skin

 

It has the bloom of the rose

You see she begged me to bring a certain painter in

And for that picture in her bedroom she would pose

 

Well after a while he was driving me mad

 

As you could well understand

 

Sitting in there day after day

 

With my wife in the palm of his hand

 

It was

Madam please do this and madam please do that

 

You've never heard such display

 

But he didn't mind he was taking his time

It was me that had to pay

 

Oh madam I think we should take a walk in the woods

 

You understand it's the light

 

And did I mind no I was so kind when they

Came back in the middle of the night

 

And I swear I'll take care of the painter Oh the painter

 

Well as you can see it was hard for me

But something has to be done

 

She only has eyes for him and his lies and as for me

Not a glance not a single one

 

My orders were and severe she disappeared

 

It really was such a shame

 

And when they told me she was dead I broke down and said

It's that painter it's him he's to blame

 

With his madam please do this and madam please do that

 

You've never heard such display

 

But he didn't mind he was taking his time

It was me that had to pay

 

Oh madam I think we should take a walk in the woods

 

You understand it's the light

 

And did I mind no I was so kind when they

Came back in the middle of the night

And I hope it's the rope for the painter

 

When he's found it's hellbound for the painter

I'll get that painter
