Bb

Bb        Ebm                      Gm
Fools on parade cavort and carry on
            Dm
For waiting eyes
               Cm                       Dm
Ones you would rather be beside than in front of
          Cm                        Dm
But she's never been the kind to be hollowed by the stares

Gm Dm Bb Dm   x4

    Gm       Dm     Bb         Dm
She swam out of tonight's phantasm
Gm         Dm         Bb           Dm      Gm      Dm
Grabbed my hand and made it very clear
        Bb             Dm           Gm      Dm Bb Dm
There's absolutely nothing for us here
       Gm           Dm
It's a magnolia celebration
      Bb                       Dm
To be attended on a Wednesday night
     Gm                        Dm
It's better that than get a reputation
     Bb                Dm
As a miserable little tyke
    Gm                  Dm
At least that's the conclusion
     Bb              Dm    Gm    Dm  Bb
She came to in this overture

Gm Bb Dm

Dm                     Gm
The secret door swings behind us
             Cm
She's saying nothing
           Bb        Dm
She's just giggling along

    Gm        Dm      Bb       Dm
Her arms were folded most indignant
     Gm     Dm   Bb       Dm        Gm      Dm
Not looking like she was soon to leave
  Bb      Dm                  Gm     Dm Bb Dm
I had to squint in order to believe
         Gm                               Dm
And then like a butler pushing on a bookshelf
    Bb                  Dm
And unveiling the unexpected
        
  Gm                Dm          Bb                        Dm            
I who was earlier reluctant was suddenly Gmbarrassed and corrected.
Gm               Dm        Bb                Dm   Gm   Dm  Bb
How could such a creature survive in such a habitat?

Gm Bb Dm

Dm                       Gm
The secret door swings behind us
             Cm
She's saying nothing
           Gm 
She's just giggling along


Dm                       Gm
And even if they were to find us
           Cm          Dm             Dm
I wouldn't notice, I'm completely occupied
               
           Bb        Ebm
At all the fools on parade
           Gm                   Dm
Cavort and carry on for waiting eyes
               Cm                       Dm
Ones you would rather be beside than in front of
          Cm                
But she's never been the kind
      Dm
To be hollowed by the stares
Bb        Ebm                Gm
Fools on parade frolic and fuck about
          Dm              Cm                     Dm                      
To make a gaze turn to a scribble on a page by a picture
               Cm            
That holds her absence
                   Dm
But you're daft to think she'd care
Bb          Ebm      Gm  Dm
Fools on parade
Cm         Dm      Cm   Dm
Fools on parade
Bb          Ebm       
Fools on parade
           Gm          Dm  Cm Dm Cm Dm
Conduct a sing-along
