Halloween Parade (LP Version) - Lou Reed

There's a down town fairy singing out Proud Mary

As she cruises Christopher Street

And some Southern Queen is acting loud and mean

Where the docks and the Badlands meet

 

This Halloween is something to be sure

 

Especially to be here without you

 

There's a Greta Garbo and an Alfred Hitchcock

And some black Jamaican stud

 

There's five Cinderellas and some leather drags

I almost fell into my mug

 

There's a Crawford Davis and a tacky Cary Grant

 

And some homeboys lookin' for trouble down here from the Bronx

 

But there ain't no Hairy and no Virgin Mary

You won't hear those voices again

And Johnny Rio and Rotten Rita

You'll never see those faces again

 

This Halloween is something to be sure

 

Especially to be here without you

 

There's the Born Again Losers and the Lavender Boozers

And some crack team from Washington Heights

 

The boys from Avenue B and the girls from Avenue D

A Tinkerbell in tights

 

This celebration somehow gets me down

 

Especially when I see you're not around

 

There's no Peter Pedantic saying things romantic

In Latin Greek or Spic

 

There's no Three bananas or Brandy Alexander

Dishing all their tricks

 

It's a different feeling that I have today

 

Especially when I know you've gone away

 

There's a girl from Soho with a T-shirt saying I blow

She's with the 'Jive five 2 plus 3'

And the girls for pay dates are giving cut rates

Or else doing it for free

The past keeps knock knock knocking on my door

 

And I don't want to hear it anymore

No consolations please for feelin' funky

I got to get my head above my knees

 

But it makes me mad and mad makes me sad

And then I start to freeze

 

In the back of my mind I was afraid it might be true

 

In the back of my mind I was afraid that they meant you

 

The Halloween Parade

 

At the Halloween Parade

 

At the Halloween Parade

 

See you next year at the Halloween Parade

 

Halloween Parade
