The Lyrics

Complete cameo list:
So your job is to get eyes scourin’
Every scene to see the man come into view.
In one film you will see him glide in
On a wheelchair in which he’s ridin’.[1]
A mutts walker he. . .wingèd rout a mystery.[2]
A nice cameo the dude’ll get.

He’s goin’ out to mail a letter,
Also he is leading a horse along,[3]
Got a cello, a music lover,[4]
Double bass player in another.[5]
A mugger is he, winkin’ in photography.[6]
A nice cameo the dude’ll get. . . .

From hotel in strange romance,[7]
He plays each shot of himself straight.
He’s the man of cameo fame. . .
Stands in front of “Cut Rate [Drugs].”[8]

Now in two there is speculatin’,
Wonderin’ if these are flicks he’s really in.[9]
On a bus where an accused goes;[10]
The large cowboy hat does amuse so.[11]

Another—that’s three—where the joke’s musicality.[12]
A nice cameo the dude’ll get

A nice cameo—ya view him yet?
A nice cameo, reduced and wet[13]
A nice cameo, reduced in red[14]
A nice cameo in silhouette[15]
A nice cameo with cigarette[16]
A nice cameo in an arrest[17]
A nice cameo placed at a desk[18]
A nice cameo in “I Confess”[19]
A nice cameo, in bowler dressed[20]
A nice cameo in “North. . .Northwest”[21]
A nice cameo at a big fest[22]
A nice cameo in all those Steps[23]
A nice cameo—like Kim, gray-dressed[24]
A nice cameo, in kid-duress[25]

JAB - Hitchcock is on record saying that actors are "cattle". Perhaps this was one of his motivations - to show them how easy acting could be. Yet another classic here. ;D

You'd have to be a psycho not to give this a 5.

Favorite cameo was Lifeboat. An inspired choice. You've certainly done you homework, JB.
