The small little man walks into the park.
And eyes the old man who is sitting in the
"Please kind sir can you do me a favor."
"I've been sitting here all day."
"By the way my name is Ray."
"Anyhow I need someone to deliver this
"I've mailed it before and it always comes
back return to sender."
"You see me and my daughter had a falling
"And I believe if it was hand delivered from
a fine young man like you."
"You'd have more clout."
"What's in it for me?"
"The chance to meet a beautiful girl."
"By the way her name is Dee."
"Anyhow I'll pay you fifty dollars today."
"And I'm sure for you that will go a long
"Just tell me the way."
He cluthes the letter he's been asked to
And approaches the building and looks thru
He open it up and steps onto the floor.
And what he sees touches him to the core.
There on the couch is what was once a
Bloody and beaten and up in a curl.
He looks away for he can't take it no more.
As he bolts right out of the door.
There is his home if he could just make it
Maybe then he could get some fresh air.

And put him in a cell to stay.
"It's your turn to see the judge."
"So please be courteous" as the man gives
him a nudge.
"So tell me what do you have to say today."
"Your honor I swear it wasn't me who done
"I really don't think I should have to do
"And your honor I believe you have the
letter I was asked to deliver."
"My understanding is there is no Ray."
"He died twenty years ago today."
"And there is no Dee."
"She died when she was twenty three."
"In the very same way they say."
"And I don't know if you noticed."
"But the letter I have here is postmarked in
nineteen sixty nine."
"And while the circumstances of this case is
a little unusual at this point and time."
"We cannot overlook the facts."
"That the evidence against you is pretty
"And you've shown me no other proof."
"So here lies your fate."
"Since you show no remorse."
"And for the girl who was beaten and stabbed
with a knife."
"I'm giving you fifty years to life."
