The Lyrics

“Frenzy” (1972)
Here’s the Barry creep;[1]
Gals he’ll put to “sleep.”
Dude has frenzy (Frenzy).

He a guy who loves
To strangle a lass—
Not a friend, he.

Takes his tie off—
Harm he means to do.
On their necks he’ll place it,
And when he’s through,
He will repeat air-constriction feats.
Dude has frenzy (Frenzy).

He don’t bleed or lance; that is not his stance,
Man with frenzy (Frenzy).
A vendor of fruit, this guy is no hoot
When he’s in frenzy.

Takes his tie off—
Harm he’s sure to do.
A neck-rope-philiac
When he feels blue.
Some fruit he’ll eat
Then garrote tout de suite—
Dude has frenzy (Frenzy),
Manic, frenzied,
Man’s yet friendly.*

[1]Robert Rusk, as played by Barry Foster. This serial strangler who uses neckties, sets up his friend Richard Blaney for the crimes. Blaney, who’s figured out that Rusk is the killer, escapes from jail and plans to kill Rusk. He goes to Rusk’s flat and find him, he thinks, in bed. He starts beating the body in bed, only to find out that it is Rusk’s latest victim. Just then Inspector Oxford, who’s also figured out that Rusk is the killer, enters the flat and signals Blaney to be quiet. Rusk enters the room and sees that he’s caught. The films ends with the classic line from Oxford: “Why Mr. Rusk, you’re not wearing your tie!”

*An example of the friendly psychopath; others, among many: Uncle Charlie in “Shadow of a Doubt” and Bruno Antony in “Strangers on a Train” (both films involving train motifs)

JAB - This was the first Hitchcock I saw in a theater as a college freshman. We adopted Rusk's "Lovely! Lovely!" as a catchphrase. The final line is among the best in cinema history. Barry Foster, surprisingly, played Kaiser Wilhelm in the BBC mini-series The Fall Of Eagles (a most noteworthy performance). Be careful...ingesting too much Hitch too rapidly can be! ;D
