The Lyrics

Throughout history, many songs have been written about the eternal triangle. This next one, you may have heard, goes all the way back to 1868, and the K3 did it in 1958. When they did it, it was about rednecks in North Carolina. But maybe it was about goombahs in New York. Tomorrow morning, at the State Prison in Ossining (up the Hudson River from Manhattan, hence the phrase "up the river"), Tom DiJulio will pay for his crime.
Hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
hang down your head and cry
(poor boy, oh well-a)
hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
poor boy, you're bound to die.

I met her on the Subway.
There I took her life.
On that downtown D Train
stabbed her with my knife.

Hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
hang down your head and cry
(poor boy, oh well-a)
hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
poor boy, you're bound to die.

This time tomorrow
where ya t'ink I'll be?
Hadn't a-been for Sipowicz
I'd be in New Jersey!

A well, well, now!
Hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
hang down your head and cry
(poor boy, oh well-a)
hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
poor boy, you're bound to die.

This time tomorrow
I'll be you know where
up at Sing Sing Prison
in the electric chair!

Hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
hang down your head and cry
(poor boy, oh well-a)
hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
poor boy, you're bound to die!

A well, well, now!
Hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
hang down your head and cry
(poor boy, oh well-a)
hang down your head, Tom DiJulio
poor boy, you're bound to die!

Poor boy, you're bound to die!

Poor boy, you're bound to...fry!
