Wainwright, Rufus - Montauk Lyrics




One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad wearing a
kimono and see your other dad pruning roses
Hope you wont turn around and go
One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad playing the piano
and see your other dad wearing glasses
Hope that you will want to stay for a while
Don’t worry I know you’ll have to go
One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad trying to be funny
and see your other dad seeing through me
Hope that you will protect your dad
One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad trying to be evil
and see your other dad feeling lonely
Hope that you will protect him, and stay
Don’t worry I know you’ll have to go
One day years ago in Montauk lived a woman now a shadow
There she does wait for us in the ocean
And although we want to stay for a while
Don’t worry we all have to go
One day you will come to Montauk

Wainwright, Rufus Montauk Comments
  1. Robin Chanteuse Dylan

    Am still enjoying this vid! Damn I love Rufus!

  2. Robin Chanteuse Dylan

    Awesome is Rufus! He's got the Philip Glass thing going. In fact, it is said that Mr. Glass likes this song. I'd get hand cramps if I tried this kind of playing an entire song.

  3. Luke Taylor

    I cannot even begin to describe how difficult this song is to play, let alone sing at the same time!…And how ridiculously simple he makes it look! Genius.

  4. Moira Russell

    That is one unearthly voice.
