PARKVIEW



 

 

 


COMMITTED TO PARKVIEW



There's a man across the hall
Who sits starin' at the floor
And he thinks he's Hank Williams
Hear him singin' through the door


There's a girl in 202
Who stops by to visit me
And she talks about some books she wrote
And the famous author she should be


There's a lot of real fine talent
Stayin' in or passin' through
And for one thing or another
They're committed to Parkview



There's a girl in 207
Comin' down on thorazine
And an excellent electrician
Tryin' to kick that benzedrine

There's a real fine airline pilot
Who has tried and tried and tried
They just brought him in this morning
An attempted suicide


There are those who never made it
Those who did and now are through
Some came of their own good choosin'
Some committed to Parkview



There's a girl who cries above me
Loud enough to wake the dead
They don't know what she has taken
That has scrambled up her head


There's a boy just down below me
Who's the son of some well-known
He was brought in by his mother
'Cause his daddy's always gone


There's a bum from down on Main Street
And a few quite well-to-do
Who have withdrawn from the rat race
And committed to Parkview
