This Grand Parade

It’s Sunday afternoon and the stores are all closed
Little Martha don’t care what she just don’t know
It’s raining somewhere out in this world
but not on me
no, not on me

The man on the tv said it’s the end of time
I suppose He gets paid to tell me those lies
What Little Martha knows He just don’t know
She gets for free
gets for free

I’m glad to be here
Glad to be alive
Part of this grand parade
I know there’s no guarantees
I’m just glad to be here one more day

Seems like everybody wants to talk about how they feel
Like who they are has got to be some great big deal
But I just want to take up
the space I fill,
space I fill

I used to want to have everybody call my name
the outrageous slings and arrows of fortune and fame
I guess it all comes down to
maybe I wont
maybe I will

I’m glad to be here
Glad to be alive
Part of this grand parade
I know there’s no garauntees
I’m just glad to be here one more day

Maybe I don’t nothing at all
Maybe it don’t matter anyhow
Maybe the very best we can do
is to be right here, right now

I’m glad to be here
Glad to be alive
Part of this grand parade
I know there’s no guarantees
I’m just glad to be here one more day
