Song Meaning
Verse 1
Where did you go after the parade
I wandered, searching for about an hour
Then I parked it on a bench
Shifting and sulking
Those pesky little mosquitoes
They nearly, nearly, nearly, nearly drained me
Verse 2
Then a man dripping with vitalis
Said I looked like Joe Namath
He asked me did I used to be famous
And I said "neighbor, I'm famously late"
And I said "neighbor, I'm famously late"
Verse 3
Where did you go after the parade
You never even appeared to enjoy it
I came out of it with a slight experience
Drinking and howling at the natives
Verse 4
You're a great at disappearing
You left me with an ear ache
I spit into the swan lake saying
"what a hideous review"
Saying, "what a hideous review"
Verse 5
Weather, barometric pressure
Push me to the ground
My stomach is growling
I always heard this was such a festive town
But everybody over ten years old is frowning
Everybody over ten years old is frowning
Verse 6
Where did you go after the parade
I didn't expecting you to be bolting away
Remember the time you took me
To see Harold and Maude
'cause I didn't know the meaning
Of the word catharsis
Verse 7
We are busy weaklings
Poking around for reasons
We are happy little heathens
It's just time we both admit it
It's time we both admit it
