Killer Wants To Go To College

ŠPaul Simon, released on Songs from The Capeman, 1997

.

[Inmate:]

Killer wants to go to college

He wants to get his parole

So the Department of Corrections

Will release him in the fall

Killer wants to go on T.V.

Wants to talk about his book

Make my life into a movie

I got the style, I got the look.

.

[Virgil:]

This boy used to be on death-row

Will his violence return?

Will he call out to his mother,

'Mama, you can watch me burn!'

.

[Inmate:]

Killer wants to go to college

Another bullshit degree

Tell the little town of New Paltz

'You ain't got nothin' to be scared about with me'
