-> "Guy's 'Bound'"
Original Song Title:
Parody Song Title:
He’s telling lies, thinking they can’t see—
Ain’t the guy he is supposed to be.
Guy’s bound, guy is spellbound,
Fell down while going down
The slopes, then hit the ground.
Soon he can’t laugh, ’cause he’s feeling down,
Has an attack, and gets out of town.
Man’s gone; this woman finds him one day. ..
“Let’s find out why you’re acting this way!”
She’s bound (she’s really bound)
And determined, a hound
Of the psyche; she found
That she’s attracted to this poor clown,
Yet she can’t analyze why he’s down.
To the home of her mentor for help;
Man’s amnesiac. . .don’t know himself—
Guy’s down, he’s really down;
Law found a guy that’s down,
As in “dead”—REALLY down.
Law says, “You whacked him; you’re goin’ down!”
This is no laughing matter. . .jail-bound.
Meanwhile, the woman’s found: her boss shot down
The man who was laid down, down on the ground.
So she lays down law to this clown.
He knows he’s going down—he puts a round
Into his loathsome crown.
Her lover rebounds
And is no more spellbound.

Dr. Murchison, as played by Leo G. Carroll (Captain Melbeck in “Suspicion”—Hitchcock had fear and loathing of authority figures, brought on, allegedly by his father having him locked up briefly in a jail cell to instill a sense of discipline.
