South Park has reimagined a retirement home as a Death Row prison.

And they've given the pensioners a hardcore hip-hop soundtrack, Locked Up In Here, to capture the feeling of entrapment.

'They put me here to die / left me angry and alone / for the crime of being old / they threw me in this nursing home,' raps one old-timer.

The animated comedy is show on Comedy Central. Here is the rap:
