Me and Julio Down in Down By The Schoolyard (Live) - 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

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

Seein' me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

Seein' me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

Whoa in a couple 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

Seein' me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

Seein' me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard

Seein' me and Julio

Down by the schoolyard
