The Lyrics

“Notorious” (1946); Alicia marries Alex so she can spy on him and his Nazi pals. Devlin is her Agency contact. Alex’s creepy mother (a recurring motif in Hitchcock films; think Mrs. Bates) discovers that Alicia is spying and tries to poison her. Some of the wine bottles (the McGuffin) contain uranium.
He[1] keeps a close, watch, with partners in crime,
On the cellar; he’s down there all the time.
He creeps around ’cause he’s a Nazi schwein.
There’s monkeyshines—
Guy locks the wine.

The guy named Devlin’s[2] very pleasing man to view;
He’s guided by the mission to see it through.
She[3] plays a part; Alex, fool, is duped.
And they’re aligned. . .
A marriage bind.

Then au Lytton:[4] a dark and stormy night;
Grant gets the key and starts searching the site.
In the glass bottles: metal shiny bright.
And what they find:
My, it’s not wine!

Claude’s mom’s a tad on the Electra side;
She tells him that Ingrid’s too deeply pried.
To save their assets, it’s time that she died.
His pals ain’t blind:
Claude, mom, they find
Failed in the cause to assemble the bomb;
Grant saves Ingrid, with casual aplomb,
Leaving Claude deep in Scheisse with his mom.
Despite their whines,
It’s lost-life time.

[4]Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Notorious for the first line of his 1830 novel, “Paul Clifford”: “It was a dark and stormy night.” Judge Augustus Brandon is one of the characters in the novel.
