Rose Parade - Elliott Smith

They asked me to come down and watch the parade
And to march down the street like the duracell bunny
With a wink and a wave from the cavalcade
Throwing out candy that looks like money
To people passing by that all seem to be going the other way
Said wont you follow me down to the rose parade?
Tripped over a dog in a choke-chain collar
People were shouting and pushing and saying
And when I traded a smoke for a food stamp dollar
A ridiculous marching band started playing
And got me singing along with some half-hearted victory song
Wont you follow me down to the rose parade?
Wont you follow me down to the rose parade?
Wont you follow me down to the rose parade?
The trumpet has obviously been drinking
Because hes f_cking up even the simplest lines
Id say its a sight thats quite worth seeing
Its just that everyones interest is stronger than mine
And when they clean the street Ill be the only sh_t thats left behind
Wont you follow me down to the rose parade?
Wont you follow me down to the rose parade?
Wont you follow me down to the rose parade?
