A Fine Day For A Parade
Written by C. Collingwood / A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Utopia Parkway

Mrs. Carver says she's sorry 
She knows enough not to worry 
But what does she know about crime? 
Believes the town is sinking 
The price of forward thinking 
You stay up all night half the time 

Racking your mind 
Alone in the night 
While all your neighbors sleep tight 

Years ago she lost her daughter 
Off to a sacred order 
Where they got stoned and worked the earth 
Clears up her head with bourbon 
Cause beer is so suburban 
And declasse for what it's worth 

She drinks it down down down 
For all the old old days 
She's thinking of it now 
It's nice to get away 
But what a fine day for a parade 

She stays up mending curtains 
Until her fingers hurt, and 
You can get so bored of it all 
No one can say for certain 
She'll never safely know when 
An asteroid will kill us all 

She drinks it down down down 
For all the old old days 
She's thinking of it now 
It's nice to get away 
But what a fine day for a parade
