Lyrics Question

Can someone explain to me what the 2nd verse of Mr. Jones is all about...

I will paint my picture
Paint my self in blue and red and black and grey
All of the beautiful colors are very very meaninful
(You know) Grey is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso
I would buy myself a grey guitar and play


Especially the Picasso part.

Absolutely, why do you have to know Picasso to go through with that? I mean you already play the guitar... your favorite color is gray... it seems like a no brainer

Clarke said...

Exactly. Leave Picasso out of it. Go buy the damn guitar.

I think it has something to do with a Picasso painting that has a grey guitar in it. How that relates to his feelings of being "symbolic" is beyond me.
