Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
When the mama pajama rolled out a bed
She ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout
Verse 2
And he started the investigation
It's against the law
It was against the law
What the mama saw
It was against the law
Verse 3
The mama look 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 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
See you, me and Julio
Down by the school yard
Me and Julio down by the school yard
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Yeah I'm on my way now
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way now, 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 school yard
See you me and Julio
Down by the school yard
See you me and Julio
Down by the school yard
