gaga palmer madonna lyrics – amanda palmer

she is a part of the music continuum
and she’s a part of this difficult world
and she wears outfits made of aluminium
she is a 23
she is a 23
she is a 23 and a half year old girl

i am a part of the music continuum
and i’m a part of this difficult world
i’m often naked and play the accordion
i am a 33
i am a 33
i am a 33 and a half year old girl

she is part of the music continuum
and also part of this difficult world
she was the first one to often have no clothes on
she is not 53
she’s only 50
but i used her anyway
’cause she fits well in this song

art is great; that way you can do anything
you can make pop music
you can paint ducks
but if you’re a pop star and you’re a woman
than it’s much more likely that
people will say your art sucks.

making pop music isn’t for everyone
actually that’s wrong it technically is
that’s why it’s pop music
now i’ve confused myself
i’m gonna start a new verse and i’ll say it like this

some artists focus on love and simplicity
some artists focus on fashion and fame
then sometimes some artists try to do everything
which is impossible
i think those people are brave.

art is simple
just ask andy warhol
if he weren’t dead he would tell you the truth
call it a masterpiece
call it a urinal
it doesn’t matter
it’s art so there’s nothing to prove

i’m not sure what the point of this song was
and i know this song doesn’t actually have to have
any point at all
even good rhymes in it
like lady gaga and also madonna
i’m just trying to entertain people, make a living and
pay my rent,
without having to get a job i hate and hopefully find
an audience who’ll love and accept me
and not think i’m a narcissist for wanting to be a
performer and find true inner peace and that’s it.

now a question to further our dialogue
is all art real art and is pop art art?
if someone talented wants to make pop music
why should we worry when there’s so much other sh*t

this song took less time to write and record
and post straight onto youtube than writing a blog
i think it’s possible i may do more of these
please send your comments
especially if you think i’m wrong.
