Dan Bern - Marilyn

Song Lyrics

Marilyn Monroe didn't marry Henry Miller
Marilyn Monroe didn't marry Henry Miller
Marilyn Monroe didn't marry Henry Miller
Marilyn Monroe didn't marry Henry Miller

But if she did he'd have taken her to Paris
And if she did she'd have smoked a lot of opium
And if she did she'd have dyed her hair blue
And if she did she might be alive

Oh-oh-o-oh Henry Miller
Oh-oh-o-oh Marilyn Monroe
Oh-oh-o-oh Henry Miller
Oh-oh-o-oh Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe didn't marry Henry Miller
She lived outside the Tropic of Capricorn
Marilyn Monroe didn't marry Henry Miller
I don't even know if she knew Henry Miller

But if she did he'd a taken her to Paris
And if she did they'd have fucked every day
And if she did she'd have felt like a woman
Not like a photogragh in a magazine

Oh-oh-o-oh Henry Miller
Oh-oh-o-oh Marilyn Monroe

This is not a knock against Arthur Miller
"Death of a Salesman" is my favorite play
But Marilyn Monroe should have married Henry Miller
And if she did she might be alive

Cause if she did he'd have taken her to Paris
Tied her to the bed and eaten dinner off of her
And okay maybe she'd have died the same, anyway
But if she did she'd have had more fun

Oh-oh-o-oh Henry Miller
Oh-oh-o-oh Marilyn Monroe
Oh-oh-o-oh Henry Miller
Oh-oh-o-oh Marilyn Monroe
