SAL
It was the morning of October 6th, 1960
I was wearing my brown suit
Preparing to leave the house of D.
Shook some hands then
adios Brooklyn amigos
Maybe some of them had hopes
of seeing me again
Some even said that my
judge-Judge Gerald Culkin-
Wouldn't play it by the book
Maybe let us off the hook
But, WOH-OO-WOH, I knew better.

SAL & SALVADOR
Afraid to leave the projects
To cross into another neighborhood

SAL
The blancos and the nigger gangs
Well, they'd kill you if they could.

AUREA & WOMEN
Angel of Mercy, people are suffering
All over the world
Spanish children are taught on
their knees to believe
Angel of Mercy, people are suffering
All over the island tonight,
Mothers weep

SAL & AUREA
Sisters grieve.

SAL
Well, I entered the
courtroom, state of New York
County of New York, just some spic
They scrubbed off the sidewalk
Guilty by my dress
Guilty in the press
Let The Capeman burn for the murder
Well the "Spanish
boys" had their day
in court
And now it was time for some
fuckin' law and order
The electric chair
For the greasy pair
Said the judge to the court reporter

SAL & SALVADOR
Afraid to leave the projects
To cross into another neighborhood

SALVADOR

Well, they'd kill you if they could

AUREA & WOMEN
Angel of Mercy, people are suffering
All over the world
A Spanish boy could be killed
every night of the week

SAL
But just let some white boy die
And the world goes crazy for
blood-Latin blood.
I don't lie when I speak.

SAL & SALVADOR
Well they shackled my hands

SAL
A heavy belt around my
waist to restrain me

SAL & SALVADOR
And they shackled my legs

SAL
Hernandez, the
"Umbrella Man,"
chained beside me
Then we rode that Black Maria
Through the streets of Spanish Harlem
Calling old friends on the corners

SAL & AUREA
Just to lay our prayers upon them

SAL
Crying
Adios Hermanos, Adios

SAL & SALVADOR
Adios Hermanos, Adios

Paul Simon biography

Paul Frederic Simon (born October 13, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter and musician, perhaps best known for his partnership with Art Garfunkel in the duo Simon & Garfunkel. In 2006, Time magazine called him one of the 100 "people who shape our world."

In a career dating back to the 1950s, Paul Simon established himself among the best and most popular songwriters of the rock era. Growing up in Queens, NY, Simon befriended schoolmate Art Garfunkel, who had an angelic tenor voice, and the two teamed up as Tom & Jerry, taking the names of cartoon characters. In the winter of 1957-1958, they scored a chart hit with "Hey Schoolgirl" - both were 16 years old.

In 1962, Simon reached the charts briefly in the group Tico & the Triumphs with the song "Motorcycle," using the name Jerry Landis.

In 1964, he and Garfunkel teamed up again as a folk duo in Greenwich Village, signed to Columbia Records, and released the album,.....MORE.....(full Paul Simon biography)
