Fourteen Lines of Liberty

Without his Dirty Dozen, there stood Lee, 
a gun stuck to his hand for every role, 
the finest bad guy you will ever see, 
with Jimmy Stewart-killin' as his goal. 
Well Jim was squeaky clean, and even though 
he couldn't shoot the breeze, he thought he'd try 
to take this sumbitch out -- but viewers know 
it was the Duke who made Lee Marvin die. 
And Jim, a politician through and through, 
took credit, got the girl and won the day, 
and lived a lie as all good lawyers do -- 
what happened to the Duke? Well, he turned gay. 
So here's the lesson: truth is bad, my friend -- 
all people want is bullshit in the end.
