"St. Judy's Comet" as written by and Paul Simon....
1st 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.

2nd & 3rd inmate
He wants to talk about his book
Make my life into a movie

I got the style, I got the look
This boy used to be on death row
Will his violence return?
Will he call out to his mother

2nd inmate
Mama, you can watch me burn
Killer wants to go to college
Another bull-shit degree
Tell the little town new paltz
You ain't got nothin to be scared about with me

    General CommentMy dad used to sing me this song when I was little. Solid proof that I have been loved in my life, if you ask me :)
