where the Welfare Bureau fixed up
a flat they had.

I got a chance to come home then,
but that didn't last long,

but instead I was sent to a
boarding-school in Hägersten.

Then I went to a farm
and was there three months.

And then another three months
at Skrubba.

There were a lot of car thefts,
and I was sentenced.

Then it was reform school
and then I came to Gräser.

I was there for two years.
You didn't get a chance there
either to show you could behave,

only release and if you didn't
behave, you got pulled in again.

And there were
a lot of escapes there

and finally I ended up in Lövsta.
And no chance to show
you could behave there either,

only escapes and stuff there,
and in 1964 I was sentenced
to a youth prison.

And what I didn't know
when I got there, I got taught:

both school and prison, you know.
A trade school for thieves,
you know,

you learn everything you don't know.
That's all wrong,
I think you should go right to prison,

and there you'll get
another view of life.

I know what
I'm talking about anyway,

since I've been
locked up for ten years
