Monty, this seems strange to me The movies had that movie thing But nonsense has a welcome ring And heroes don't come easy
Now nonsense isn't new to me I know my head, I know my feet But mischief knocked me in the knees Said, "just let go, just let go"
I saw the ocean meet the man I saw you buried in the sand A friend was there to hold your hand Said, "walk on by"
So, I went walking through the street I saw you strung up in a tree A woman knelt there said to me Said, "hold your tongue, hold your tongue"
You don't owe me anything You don't want this sympathy (waste your breath) Don't you waste your breath (waste your breath) For the silver screen
That nonsense doesn't mean a thing They tried to bust you in a sting But virtue isn't everything So, don't waste time
Now, here's a rhyme that you can steal Put this on your reel to reel Mischief threw a rotten deal Monty's laying low, man He is laying low Just let go Just let go
You don't owe me anything You don't want this sympathy (waste your breath) Don't you waste your breath (waste your breath) Monty, this seems strange to me
