There's a lot of strange men in cell block ten But the strangest of them all Was a friend of mine who spent his time Staring at the wall Staring at the wall As he looked at the wall So strong and tall You could hear him softly curse Nobody at all ever climbed that wall But I'm gonna be the first I'm gonna be the first Well the warden walked by and said son don't try I'd hate to see you fall For there is no doubt they'll carry you out If you ever touch that wall If you ever touch that wall Well a years went by since .....that's the truth Well a years gone (them mean bastards ain't they?) Well a years gone by since he made his try But I can still recall How hard he tried and the way he died But he never made that wall Never made that wall Well there's never been a man ever shook this can But I knew a man who tried The newspapers called it a jailbreak plan But I know it was suicide I know it was suicide
