lyrics

I did everything that I said I would do.
I made all these promises, then followed through.
I been working so hard on this opus for you.
OOOOh.

I woke up ascetic composed before dawn,
Selecting each lyric, each melodic pawn,
Creating the perfect poetic persona.
I wanna know.

WHERE IS MY PARADE?

I trudged through the city to capture the noise,
Of demented musicians abusing their toys.
I sculpted it preciously, used every ploy,
OOOOh.

A sisyphean task of an obstinate will,
A narcissist's drama, and extrovert's thrill,
Cause the world is a stage for my digital swill,
I wanna know.

WHERE IS MY PARADE?

You forgot all the ticker tape.
You forgot the brass band.
You forgot to invite all the vendors,
Forgot all the floats and the stilt walking handstand brigade.
You forgot to close down 5th avenue,
Forgot all the smiling young children who should be pointing at me,
And asking their mommies and daddies,
"Who's He?"

The man with the crown on his head, and a white sequined cape,
On the float with the president's wife,
Beneficiently waving at the people at his feet,
Cause he did something wonderful for you and for me,
So they closed all the schools and made a national holiday,
Put his face on a coin and a flag and a stamp,
And he started a charity to cure every ill in the world,
And it worked,
And that's why there's world peace.

WHERE IS MY PARADE????
