* “[…] Waar de kleurenbuis grijs is / Een schroef nog een vijs is / Waar de rijkswacht goed functioneert / Waar een pik een houweel is / Er geen pintje te veel is / Francis Bay het orkest dirigeert / Waar een g soms een h is / AVVV VVK is / Waar men Ensor danig prijst / Waar de Chiro paraat staat / De vrouw aan de vaat staat / De camera traag gaat / De premier nogal vaag praat / De vakantie naar Spanje wijst […]”

* “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”
“James Henry” (1994), They might be Giants
