The Getty Song

There's a new place in L.A. 

I go there every day 

It's the Getty 


Outside it's quite clean 

But inside it's obscene 

It's the Getty 


There are pictures fresh from France 

Of girls without their pants In the Getty 

And the Greek boys they've got there 

Aren't wearing underwear 

In the Getty 


There's a wonderful Van Gogh 

Which cost a lot of dough 

In the Getty 


60 millions bucks 

There's things you've never seen 

Outside of a wet dream 

In the Getty 


There's a Greek boy there whose ass 

Is made of solid brass 

In the Getty 


And the air-conditioning 

Has shrunk his little thing 

In the Getty 


There are loads of modern things 


Like paintings just of strings 

Of spaghetti 

But largely it's quite rude 

Lots of girlies in the nude 

Make me sweaty 


So just come alive 

And take the 405 

To the Getty 


It's absolutely free 

They've got everything 

They even let me sing 

In the Getty. 



Useless trivia: This song was written by Eric Idle to ridicule The Getty Museum in Los Angeles for inviting him to perform at a benefit and then asking him not to do "The Penis Song," (because there are obviously no naughty bits on display inside!)
