Bat Got Your Tongue?

Though Boris is fluent and prosy
Talk's a chore for that truant Lugosi
If the words are new-fangled
Then absurdly they're mangled
Evermore he eschews the verbose-y.

David Cairns

Boris Karloff as Judge Spencer Mainwaring and Béla Lugosi as Prince Saliano in You'll Find Out (David Butler; 1940).
