HALLOWEEN PARADE                                 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 get 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 teeshirt 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
