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
