They [D]asked me to [A]come down and [E]watch the par[G]ade
And to [D]march down the [A]street like the [E]duracell bunn[G]y
With a [D]wink and a [A]wave from the [E]cavalc[G]ade
[D]Throwing out [A]candy that [E]looks like mon[G]ey
F#7 Bm A E* G F#7*
To people passing by that all seem to be going the other way
[A]Said won't you [D]follow me [A]down to the r[E]ose para[G]de?
[-----]  
Tripped [D]over a [A]dog in a [E]choke-chain col[G]lar
[D]People were [A]shouting and [E]pushing and sa[G]ying
And when I [D]traded a [A]smoke for a [E]food stamp dol[G]lar
A ri[D]diculous [A]marching [E]band started play[G]ing
F#7 Bm A E* G F#7*
And got me singing 'long with some half-hearted victory song
[-----]  
[A] Won't you [D]follow me [A]down to the [E]rose para[G]de?
Won't you [D]follow me [A]down to the [E]rose para[G]de?
Won't you [F#7]follow me [E]down to the [A]rose par[E]ade?[G]
[-----]  
The [D]trumpet has [A]obvious[E]ly been drink[G]ing
'Cos he's [D]fucking up [A]even the [E]simplest li[G]nes
I'd [D]say it's a [A]sight that's [E]quite worth see[G]ing
It's just that [D]everyone's [A]interest is [E]stronger than mi[G]ne
F#7 Bm A E*
And when they clean the street I'll be the only shit
G F#7*
that's left behind
[-----]  
[A] Won't you [D]follow me [A]down to the [E]rose par[G]ade?
Won't you [D]follow me [A]down to the [E]rose par[G]ade?
Won't you [F#7]follow me [E]down to the [A]rose par[E]ade?[G]
