About Mrs. Robinson

"Mrs. Robinson" is a song by American music duo Simon & Garfunkel from their fourth studio album, Bookends (1968). Produced by the duo and Roy Halee, it is famous for its inclusion in the 1967 film The Graduate. The song was written by Paul Simon, who pitched it to director Mike Nichols alongside Art Garfunkel after Nichols rejected two other songs intended for the film. The song contains a famous reference to baseball star Joe DiMaggio. "Mrs. Robinson" became the duo's second chart-topper, hitting number one on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as peaking within the top 10 of the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Spain, among other countries. In 1969, it became the first rock song to win the Grammy Award for Record of the Year. The song has been covered by a number of artists, including Frank Sinatra, the Lemonheads, and Bon Jovi. In 2004, it finished at No. 6 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson, 
Jesus loves you more than you will know. 
God bless you, please Mrs. Robinson. 
Heaven holds a place for those who pray, 
Hey, hey, hey 

We'd like to know a little bit about your for our files 
We'd like to help you learn to help yourself. 
Look around you all you see are sympathetic eyes, 
Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home. 

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson, 
Jesus loves you more than you will know. 
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson. 
Heaven holds a place for those who pray, 
Hey, hey, hey 

Hide in the hiding place where no one ever goes. 
Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes. 
It's a little secret just the Robinsons' affair. 
Most of all you've got to hide it from the kids. 

Koo-koo-ka-choo, Mrs. Robinson, 
Jesus loves you more than you will know. 
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson. 
Heaven holds a place for those who pray, 
Hey, hey, hey 

Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon. 
Going to the candidate's debate. 
Laugh about it, shout about it 
When you've got to choose 
Every way you look at this you lose. 

Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio, 
Our nation turns it's lonely eyes to you. 
What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson. 
Jotting Joe has left and gone away, 
Hey hey hey.
