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 stared at that wall so strong and tall
You could hear him softly curse nobody at all
Ever climbed that wall but I'm gona be the first
Yeah I'm gonna be the first

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
