Lyrics:

FIRST INMATE

Killer wanna go to college
Wants to get his parole
So the Department of Corrections
Can release him in the fall.

Killer wanna to go on TV
Wants to talk about his book
“Make my life into a movie
I got the style, I got the look”

WARDEN

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”?

FIRST INMATE

Killer wanna go to college
Another bullshit degree
Tell the little town of New Paltz
“You ain’t got nuttin’ to be a-scared about wit’ me”

© 1997 Lyrics by Paul Simon and Derek Walcott
