Dogfight the musical - Hometown Hero's Ticker Tape Parade Lyrics


BIRDLACE
No-name schoolboy, awful green
Trained, ordained as a mean marine
Now they can’t fuck with the tough young buck’
Cradlin’ an m-fourteen
Da dat da da
Teach a gook to hold a gun
Serve your year and then you’re done
Homeward bound and the boy gets crowned
As cleveland’s enw fav’rite son

At the hometown hero’s ticker tape parade
Cotton candy and lemonade
THREE BEES
It’s a hometown hero’s ticker tape parade

BIRDLACE
Can’t get that at the penny arcade
Da dat da da
Dat da da dat da da da
THREE BEES
Da dat da da
Dat da da da da da
BIRDLACE
Main street blocked all afternoon
BERNSTEIN
A band on hand with a marchin’ tune
BOLLAND
Your name is wailed
BIRDLACE
The blimp’s unveiled
BERNSTEIN
Your face on a big balloon
THREE NEES
Da dat da da
BOLAND                                 BERNSTEIN/BIRDLACE
Watchin’ busty
Blondes compete                     Ain’t that sweet
Drawin claws
Like cats in heat                      Ooh yeah
BERNSTEIN
Let em’ fight to spend the night
BOLAND                                  BERNSTEIN/BIRDLACE
And stain up
That nice white sheet               Yeah
THREE BEES
At the hometown hero’s ticker tape parade
BIRDLACE
Tellin’ tales of a brave brigade
THREE BEES
A hometown hero’s ticker tape parade
BERNSTEIN
It’s your time to shine
BIRDLACE/BOLAND
Time to get laid
THREE BEES
Da dat da da
Dat da da
Dat da da da
Da dat da da
Dat da da
Da da da
BOLAND                                   FECTOR/GIBBS/STEVENS
A hero don’t get soft                 Dat da da
A hero don’t retreat                  Dat da da
He’s gonna get his way             Dat da da
‘Cause he won’t accept defeat
Dat da da
Guys like me and you                Oh
We’re heroes through and through
ALL
Semper fi
Do or die
BOLAND
You’re a goddam hero
FECTOR/GIBBS/STEVENS
Can’t you hear it boys
Comin’ comin’
Comin’ comin’
BERNSTEIN
I’m a goddamn hero!
ALL MARINES (BUT BIRDLACE)
Comin’ comin’ comin’
At the hometown hero’s ticker tape parade
No confetti for the boys who stayed
Hometown hero’s ticker tape parade

You win a war
You pick a wife
You get respect
Your whole damn life

You’re a hometown hero
Who gets a motherfuckin’
Ticker tape parade
Da dat da da
Dat da da da da da
