"The Wall" lyrics

The Wall

There's a lot of strange men
In cellblock ten
But the strangest of them all
Was a friend of mine
Who spent his time
Staring at the wall
Staring at the wall

In his hand was a note
That his gal had wrote
And it proves that crime don't pay
Was the very same gal
He robbed and stole for
Naming her wedding day
Naming her wedding day

As he looked at the wall
So strong and tall
I 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 came by
And said, "Son, don't try
I'd hate to see you fall
Cause there ain't no doubt
They'll carry you out
If you ever touch that wall
If you ever touch that wall"

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
He never made that wall

There's never been a man
Ever shook this camp
But I know a man who tried
The newspapers called it
A jailbreak plan
But I know it was suicide
I know it was suicide
