Meet James Ensor, Belgium's famous painter
Dig him up and shake his hand, appreciate the man

Before there were junk stores, before there was junk
He lived with his mother and the torments of Christ
The world was transformed, a crowd gathered round
Pressed against his window so they could be the first

To meet James Ensor, Belgium's famous painter
Raise a glass and sit and stare, understand the man

He lost all his friends, he didn't need his friends
He lived with his mother and repeated himself
The world has forgotten, the world moved along
The crowd at his window went back to their homes

Meet James Ensor, meet James Ensor, Belgium's famous painter
Dig him up and shake his hand, appreciate the man
