Mrs. Robinson Lyrics - Paul Simon

Review The Song (4)



And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please Mrs. Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey

We'd like to know a little bit about your for our files
We'd like to help you learn to help yourself.
Look around you all you see are sympathetic eyes,
Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home.

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey

Hide in the hiding place where no one ever goes.
Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes.

It's a little secret just the Robinsons' affair.
Most of all you've got to hide it from the kids.

Koo-koo-ka-choo, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey

Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon.
Going to the candidate's debate.
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you've got to choose
Every way you look at this you lose.

Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio,
Our nation turns it's lonely eyes to you.
What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson.
Jolting Joe has left and gone away,
Hey hey hey.

the first version of this song was made for a movie called The Graduate were a recent college graduate Benjamin Braddock has an affair with an older married woman, Mrs. Robinson so of course it describes a situation about a woman nameed robinson having an afair stop with all those conspiracy theories

hey bud below me, the song wasnt supposed to be named mrs. robinson it was supposed to be called mrs. roosevelt. Taking in account that simon and garfunkel were an american act its highly unlikely they wrote a song for the prime minister of Ireland's wife

prediction? | Reviewer: Susan | 1/23/10

The words of the song "Mrs Robinson" seem to describe more accurately the situation of Mrs Iris Robinson (the wife of Peter Robinson, the First Minister of Northern Ireland) than the situation of Mrs Robinson in "The Graduate".
In that film Mrs Robinson does not go in to a Psychiatric Home, and in the film there is no religion, politics, or reference to a Nation's lack of role model or loss of ethics in the people that the voters look to.....
But all these things are mentioned in the song and they all apply to Mrs Iris Robinson, who has gone way beyond what the Mrs Robinson in the film did. And the words of the song sound like they were written for the 2010 Mrs Robinson....
An eerie prediction?

Interpreting | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/12/08

the Lyric, for me, I found it a social commentary...On how we live our lives. What we show the public, versus what we keep private-for appearnace sake. What our lives culminate to ("look around the grounds...") the obvious political statement..."either way you look at it you lose" I took as Election talk...and the baseball reference, of course, is our distraction from dealing...our national 'pastimes' the whole competitvie nature of Sports, in realtion to the world ('My team your team-taking sides-control of the ball ((Earth))...)I know, far fetched and most likely way beyond the intended scope of the Song...
