Original video
Say, where did I see this guy?
In Red River, or A Place in the Sun?
Maybe The Misfits?
Or From Here to Eternity?

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
Montgomery 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 that 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"
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 alcohol

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

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
Yeah I was shaking, but I ain't got the chills

And everybody say, "What's he like?"
And everybody say, "Is he all right?"
Everybody say, "He sure looks funny"
Oh is that? Montgomery Clift, honey
