Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Back in the days of Rembrandt
Back in the time of old Jan Steen
All of them giants of shadow and light
But no-one was like Vermeer

Some paintings smell of joy and sweat
Some paintings plain look so fine
Some paintings are sad and passionate
But Vermeer sends a chill up your spine
Yeah, Vermeer sends a chill up your spine

Vermeer was eerie
Vermeer was strange
He had a more modern colour range
As if born in another age
Like maybe a hundred or so years ago

What's this? A ghost in the gallery?
Great Scot! The Martians are here!
These strange little paintings next to the others
No-one was like Vermeer

Vermeer was eerie
Vermeer was weird
He had his own way of doing things
With the paintings from another era
Another era
