The Lyrics

“Mr. & Mrs. Smith” (1941), Hitchcock's one foray into screwball comedy.
Mr., Mrs. Smith,[1]
They both had rings goin’ on—
Then they find out: it’s wrong,
The bond isn’t strong
In eyes of the law.

It turns out that they aren’t married today;
It’s a technicality, because where
They posted banns was on disputed lands. . .
They need a new wedding to move along.

Ah, but Mr. Smith
Isn’t moving along.
He don’t tell her it’s wrong. . .
Technically, no bond
In eyes of the law.

So she gets extra wrathful,
’cause she learns it from some lawyer guy.[2]
She says there’ll be no more penetration
Between her creamy thighs.

So then Mrs. Smith,
She gets a thing goin’ on
With a guy not named John
Because it’s Jeff;[3] strong
He’s not. . .a weak craw.

All the same, she plans to be leaving
Dave [Smith] in the lurch, no more to lurch inside.
They go separate ways, but soon they find:
That life was so sweet
In embrace and entwined.

Mr., Mrs. Smith
Get a thing goin’ on:
Though it’s technic’lly wrong,
Their love’s much too strong—
To hell with the law!


[1]Robert Montgomery, Carol Lombard
[2]Attorney Deaver, as played by Charles Halton (Bradley in “Foreign Correspondent,” uncredited role in “Saboteur”)

Didn't Angelina and Brad do a "Mr. And Mrs. Smith"? Was it a remake of this film?
