Rose Parade

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album Either/Or (1997).

You asked me to come down and watch the parade. To march down the street like a Duracell bunny
But we get away from the cavalcade. Throwin' out candy that looks like money

To people passing by they'd all seem to be going the other way

So won't you follow me down to the Rose Parade?

Tripped over a dog in a choke-chain collar. People were shouting and pushing and saying
They'd traded a smoke for a food stamp dollar. Ridiculous marching band started playing

Got me singing along with some half-hearted victory song

So won't you follow me down to the Rose Parade?
Won't you follow me down to the Rose Parade?
Won't you follow me down to the Rose Parade

The trumpet's obviously been drinking 'cause he's fucking up even the simplest lines
I'd say it's a sight that's quite worth seeing, it's just that everyone's interest is stronger than mine

When they clean the street I'll be the only shit that's left behind

Won't you follow me down to the Rose Parade?
Won't you follow me down to the Rose Parade?
Won't you follow me down to the Rose Parade?
