Monty Got A Raw Deal Lyrics

Monty, this seems strange to me
And 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

But 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, 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
