Dulcinea Goes in for Verse

I don't know about Art,
But I know what I like:
Not the mind but the heart.
I don't know about Art.
Say, this Flagg's pretty smart;
You can have your Van Dyck.
I don't know about Art,
But I know what I like.

When you want the police,
They are never around.
Though the hold-ups increase,
When you want the police
The preservers of peace
Are nowhere to be found.
When you want the police,
They are never around.

When I go to a play,
It's amusement I look for
I want something that's gay
When I go to a play.
Why, I worry all day —
What's a show or a book for?
When I go to a play,
It's amusement I look for.

If you only could write
Half as well as you talk!
I was saying last night
If you only could write
Half as well, why you might
Be the best in New Yawk.
If you only could write
Half as well as you talk!

I don't know about Art,
But I know what I like:
Not the mind but the heart.
I don't know about Art.
Say, this Flagg's pretty smart;
You can have your Van Dyck.
I don't know about Art,
But I know what I like.

When you want the police,
They are never around.
Though the hold-ups increase,
When you want the police
The preservers of peace
Are nowhere to be found.
When you want the police,
They are never around.

When I go to a play,
It's amusement I look for
I want something that's gay
When I go to a play.
Why, I worry all day —
What's a show or a book for?
When I go to a play,
It's amusement I look for.

If you only could write
Half as well as you talk!
I was saying last night
If you only could write
Half as well, why you might
Be the best in New Yawk.
If you only could write
Half as well as you talk!
