Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard

ŠPaul Simon, released on Paul Simon (album) 1972

.

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

What the mama saw

It was against the law

.

The mama looked down and spit on the ground

Every time 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 taking my time

But I don't know where

Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona

Seeing me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

See you, me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

.

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 was 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 taking my time

But I don't know where

Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona

See you, me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

See you, me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

See you, me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard
