Big Parade Lyrics

Big Parade - The Lumineers

Lovely girl won't you stay won't you stay stay with me

 

All my life I was blind I was blind now I see

 

Lovely girl won't you stay won't you stay stay with me

 

All my life I was blind I was blind now I see

 

Fleet of black fleet of black limousines

 

All tinted machines here comes cavalcade

 

With the armored cars armored cars like berettas

 

Flags on antennas designed to keep me safe keep me safe

 

And oh my my oh hey hey

 

Here he comes the candidate

 

Blue eyed boy united states

Vote for him the candidate

 

Diamonds cut diamonds cut for the carrots

 

Plaster of paris the floats fill up the street

 

And the beauty queens beauty queens with the white gloves

 

All sick from the night clubs

 

They wave with pageantry pageantry

 

And oh my my oh hey hey

Here it comes the big parade

 

Marching bands and barricades

Make way for the big parade

 

Oh oh oh

 

Canvas covered canvas covered in resin

 

The violent men who dance the blood ballet

 

And the bookies say bookies say it's the 3rd round

 

Oh when louie will go down if he don't

There's hell to pay and hell to raise

 

And oh my my oh hey hey

 

Here he comes the welterweight

 

Take a dive for goodness sake

Or say goodbye to the welterweight

 

Catholic priest catholic priest in a crisis

 

Torn between romance and jesus who will win the civil war

 

And he says I'm in love I'm in love with a woman

 

Yeah this is my confession

I'm leaving I can't be a priest anymore anymore

 

Oh my my oh hey hey

There he goes the man of faith

 

Left the church for a fiance

 

Let him love the man of faith

 

Oh oh oh

 

American bandstand electric guitars

 

And he's singing songs singing songs for the lonely

 

All the girls with the room keys

 

They know all his words by heart

 

By heart

 

Lovely girl won't you stay won't you stay stay with me

 

All my life I was blind I was blind now I see

 

Lovely girl won't you stay won't you stay stay with me

 

All my life I was blind I was blind now I see

 

Lovely girl won't you stay oh oh oh oh

Oh my my oh hey hey

Here she comes by saving grace

 

Burn the car and save the plates

She's arrived my saving grace
