Monty Got A Raw Deal (Live) - R.E.M.

 

Monty Got A Raw Deal (Live) by R.E.M.


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
I 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
I 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
I said, hold your tongue, man, hold your tongue
You don't owe me anything
You don't want this sympathy
Don't you waste your breath
(Don't 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, y'all, just let go
You don't owe me anything
You don't want this sympathy
(Waste your breath)
Don't you waste your breath
(Don't waste your breath)
Monty, this seems strange to me
