Parody Song Title:
"Young and Innocent"
The schlub’s out for a little middling walk;
In the water he sees a shoulder:
Washed up on the beach is a girl—
Hasn’t started to molder.
But he is young and innocent;
Nonetheless, soon in jail is he.
On the way to court he takes flight;
A girl helps his escape alright:
She is a cop’s daughter, and then the two
Take off; she’s beautiful.
She’s as conflicted as can be,
But after some time in his world
She realizes he’s not a churl.
Young and innocent.
Finding a raincoat will set him free,
They find it, but he’s still in deep shite. . .
Must find the guy with twitchy eyesight
Who’s not sweet or innocent.
They’re at the Grand Hotel—there is he,
They have found the blinking gent.
The schlub gets off and gets the girl—
He’d been wronged.
He gets to go home with the girl,
Young and innocent. . .
A wiser and older girl.
Robert Tisdall, as played by Derrick DeMarney
The wife of Guy of the twitching eyes. This scene is reminiscent of the strangled woman washing up on the banks of the Thames in “Frenzy,” strangled by a tie; In “Y&A,” the strangulation device is a raincoat belt, and the raincoat is the McGuffin.
Erica Burgoyne, as played by Nova Philbeam (Betty Lawrence in the 1934 “The Man Who Knew Too Much”)
Col. Burgoyne, as played by Percy Marmont (Caypor in “Secret Agent”; Commander Gordon in “East of Shanghai,” original title: “Rich and Strange”)
Guy, as played by George Curzon (bit part in “Jamaica Inn,” Gibson in the 1934 “The Man Who Knew Too Much”)
