"Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard"

(As recorded by Paul Simon)
PAUL SIMON

The mama pajama rolled out of bed
And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout
And he started the investigation
It's against the law
It was against the law
A what the mama saw
It was against the law.

The mama looked down and spit on the ground
Everytime my name gets mentioned
The papa said, "Oy, if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention"

Well I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way
I'm takin' my time but I don't know where
Goodbye Rosie, the Queen of Corona
See me and Julio down by the schoolyard
See me and Julio down by the schoolyard

Woah, in a couple of days they come and take me away
But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest come to get me released
We's all on the cover of Newsweek

And I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way
I'm takin' my time but I don't know where
Goodbye Rosie, the Queen of Corona
See me and Julio down by the schoolyard
See me and Julio down by the schoolyard
See me and Julio down by the schoolyard.
