Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

To Hollywood, to Hollywood, to Hollywood, I'll go
And you will know me by the name of Marilyn Monroe
For soldiers and for sailors, I'll glitter and I'll glow
They'll wish they had a girl like Marilyn Monroe

  Marilyn, Marilyn, Marilyn, Marilyn Monroe

I'll light a candle in the sky wherever I might be
For those who have to walk alone and fear the dark like me
For all those lonely women, their names I'll never know
I'll glitter in the dark for them, said Marilyn Monroe

Abe Lincoln is my hero, said Marilyn Monroe
And Arthur Miller's more like him than any man I know
Don't marry Arthur Miller, they say that he's a red
They say he's un-American.  I'll marry him, she said

Good bye to Arthur Miller, alone again I'll go
God help the man who marries me, said Marilyn Monroe
Its up and down forever, my life is like the sea
And one day when I'm down, she said, will be the death of me

I hear the hounds behind my back, I know their voices well
But how this hunt will end is more than I can tell
I hear the hounds behind me, no matter where I go
Good luck to every hunted thing, said Marilyn Monroe

How long will they remember me, said Marilyn Monroe
How long will they remember me, when death has laid me low
As long as there are people on this old world below
There'll never be another one like Marilyn Monroe

from the singing of the Ian Campbell Folk Group
