Say, where I 'd seen this guy?

In Red River?
Or a place in the sun?
Maybe The Misfits!
From Here to Eternity

And everybody say, "Is he all right?"
And everybody say, "What's he like?"
And everybody say, "He sure look funny."
That's...Montgomery Clift, honey!

New York, New York, 42nd Street
Hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Monty Clift is recognized at dawn
He ain't got no shoes and his clothes are torn

And everybody say, "Is he all right?"
And everybody say, "What's he like?"
And everybody say, "He sure look funny."
That's just Montgomery Clift, honey!

I see a car smashed at night
Cut the applause and dim the light
Monty's face is broken on a wheel
Is he alive? Can he still feel?

And everybody say, "Is he all right?"
And everybody say, "shine a light”
And everybody say, "It's not funny."
That's Montgomery Clift, honey!

Shoot his right profile

And everybody say, "Is he all right?"
And everybody say, "What's he like?"
And everybody say, "He sure look funny."
That's...Montgomery Clift, honey!

Nembutal numbs it all
But I prefer… alcohoool!

And everybody say, "What's he like?"
And everybody say, "Is he all right?"
And everybody say, "He sure look funny."
That Montgomery Clift, honey!

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
There I go again shaking, but I ain't got the chills
ARRRGHHHGORRA BUH BHUH DO ARRRRGGGGHHHHNNNN!!!!

And everybody say, "What's he like?"
And everybody say, "Is he all right?"
Everybody say, "He sure look funny."
Ah but that's Montgomery Clift, honey!
