Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Don't tell me not to live,
Just sit and putter,
Life's candy and the sun's
A ball of butter
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade
Verse 2
Don't tell me not to fly--
I've simply got to
If someone takes a spill,
It's me and not you
Who told you you're allowed
To rain on my parade!
Verse 3
I'll march my band out,
I'll beat my drum,
And if I'm fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it!
Verse 4
But whether I'm the rose
Of sheer perfection,
Or freckle on the nose
Of life's complexion,
The cinder or the shiny apple of its eye,
Verse 5
I gotta fly once,
I gotta try once,
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, life is juicy,
Juicy, and you'll see
I'm gonna have my bite, sir!
Get ready for me, love,
'Cause I'm a "comer,"
I simply gotta march,
My heart's a drummer
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade!
Verse 6
I'm gonna live and live now,
Get what I want--I know how,
One roll for the whole shebang,
One throw, that bell will go clang,
Eye on the target--and wham--
One shot, one gun shot, and bam--
Hey, Mister Arnstein, here I am!
Verse 7
I'll march my band out,
I'll beat my drum,
And if I'm fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir,
At least I didn't fake it
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it
Get ready for me, love,
'Cause I'm a "comer,"
I simply gotta march,
My heart's a drummer
Nobody, no, nobody
Is gonna rain on my parade!
