Capo on 3rd fret

G Cm

G        Cm                      Em
Fools on parade cavort and carry on
            Bm
For waiting eyes
               Am                       Bm
Ones you would rather be beside than in front of
          Am                        Bm
But she's never been the kind to be hollowed by the stares

Em Bm G D   x4

    Em       Bm     G         D
She swam out of tonight's phantasm
Em         Bm         G           D      Em      Bm
Grabbed my hand and made it very clear
        G             D           Em      Bm G D
There's absolutely nothing for us here
       Em           Bm
It's a magnolia celebration
      G                       D
To be attended on a Wednesday night
     Em                        Bm
It's better that than get a reputation
     G                D
As a miserable little tyke
    Em                  Bm
At least that's the conclusion
     G              D    Em    Bm  G
She came to in this overture

Em G Bm

Bm                     Em
The secret door swings behind us
             Am
She's saying nothing
           G        Bm
She's just giggling along

    Em        Bm      G       D
Her arms were folded most indignant
     Em     Bm   G       D        Em      Bm
Not looking like she was soon to leave
  G      D                  Em     Bm G D
I had to squint in order to believe
         Em                               Bm
And then like a butler pushing on a bookshelf
    G                  D
And unveiling the unexpected
        
  Em                Bm          G                        D            
I who was earlier reluctant was suddenly embarrassed and corrected.
Em               Bm        G                D   Em   Bm  G
How could such a creature survive in such a habitat?

Em G Bm

Bm                       Em
The secret door swings behind us
             Am
She's saying nothing
           Em 
She's just giggling along

Em  G  Bm 

Bm                       Em
And even if they were to find us
           Am          Bm             D
I wouldn't notice, I'm completely occupied
               
           G        Cm
At all the fools on parade
           Em                   Bm
Cavort and carry on for waiting eyes
               Am                       Bm
Ones you would rather be beside than in front of
          Am                
But she's never been the kind
      D
To be hollowed by the stares
G        Cm                Em
Fools on parade frolic and fuck about
          Bm              Am                     Bm                      
To make a gaze turn to a scribble on a page by a picture
               Am            
That holds her absence
                   D
But you're daft to think she'd care
G          Cm      Em  Bm
Fools on parade
Am         Bm      Am   D
Fools on parade
G          Cm       
Fools on parade
           Em          Bm  Am Bm Am D
Conduct a sing-along
