What is “Me & Julio” about

What is the Simon and Garfunkel song “Me and Julio down by the schoolyard” about? What do the lyrics mean?


The lyrics are:

The mama pajama rolled out of bed, And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout, And he started the investigation
It’s against the law
It was against the law
What the mama saw
It was against the law
The mama looked 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 in the house of detention

Whoa, 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

It sure sounds like someone was caught doing something naughty with an underage girl?


Actually it wasnt really a Simon and Garfunkel song, it was a Paul Simon solo song!
