(Newser) – Phillip Garrido, the California man accused in the abduction and rape of Jaycee Dugard, recorded songs about his fascination with young girls, an acquaintance who received two CDs with the tunes tells the Contra Costa Times. A sample lyric: “The way she walks, yeah, subtly sexy/What can I do? I fall victim too/A little child, yeah, look what you do.”

“I think it’s disturbing,” Marc Lister says. “I’m surprised he wrote lyrics about some of the things in here, whether for the girls or his own mental outlet. It’s a little bit twisted. It’s not right.” Added another man who’d heard the songs Garrido said he recorded in a soundproof studio in his backyard: “He’s a very good singer.”
