Big Big Train - Judas Unrepentant
Venetian expertise Inspired by Titian Which he modified Fine tuned along dutch lines He’s painting revenge Embittered by lack of success With signature techniques Attention to details And fine tell tale brushstrokes of badger and sable Expressing contempt For greedy dealers Getting rich At the artist’s expense Infamous forger and restorer Judas Unrepentant branded a charming old lovable rogue Judas Unrepentant Hey Judas Unrepentant Hey Judas! His time bombs are in place And anachronisms Clues pointing to the truth If ever they are X-rayed Wrote legends in lead white to trick the experts And hoodwink Hoodwink the trained eye Infamous forger and restorer Judas Unrepentant branded a charming old lovable rogue Judas Unrepentant Hey Judas Unrepentant Hey Judas Unrepentant Establishing provenance Acquiring old frames with Christies numbers Then paints a picture in the same style Specialising in minor works by major artists All rise Thirteen watercolours by Samuel Palmer Have proven to be his undoing And so he confesses then he is arrested Charged him with conspiracy to defraud Years of chain smoking and breathing in fumes from restorations The stress of the court case had taken its toll His trial was halted due to ill health So now we can all buy Real genuine fakes That’s posthumous fame It’s always the same Infamous forger and restorer Judas Unrepentant branded a charming old lovable rogue Judas Unrepentant Feeling like Robin Hood Just as good As Rembrandt or Titian Hey Judas Unrepentant Hey Judas Unrepentant Hey Judas Unrepentant
