Tom and Jerry Story (Live Version)

Simon & Garfunkel

Paul and I go back to the sixth grade when we grew up in queens
They cast the two of us in the elementary
School graduation play alice in wonderland
I was the cheshire cat, and it's been a lot of laughs ever since
With a few interruptions this would be the fiftieth anniversary
Of this friendship that I deeply cherish

We met when we were eleven years old in alice in
Wonderland and I was the white rabbit
It's a leading role and artie was the cheshire
Cat it was a supporting role,
A very important, very important supporting role
Now, we started to sing together when we were thirteen years old,
And we started to argue when we were fourteen years old
So that makes this the forty-seventh anniversary of our arguing

Now we only argued about one thing if you want
To know the truth, from the very
Beginning, there was only one thing that was
The basis of everything else:
When we first formed our group I wanted to
Call us garfunkel and simon

You should do that now we don't argue any more
Now we say, now we say: that's your opinion and I respect that
We made our first record when we were sixteen years old
They called us tom & jerry, and our song was called
"hey school girl in the second row",
And it went like this
