Marching in the Wrong Parade Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
Hundred Days the Musical - Marching in the Wrong Parade Lyrics


JO:
We were marching in the wrong parade
I was marching right behind you
They told us Jesus was in the drums
And god would tell us what to do
So we kept marching in the wrong parade

And I'd be your bother before the day was through
I'd be your brother and your sister too
And when you got down off the cross
I gave you my best pair of shoes
Cause I was marching right behind you

Oh, you can be a city boy
City boy
He can be a city boy now
Oh you can be a city boy
City boy
Oh don't forget me when you can't see me
1 - 2 - 3 - 4

REGGIE:
Ooooooh

JO:
The old days are written in the good book
Between the prophets and the dirty looks
The notes we passed and dirty drawings
In the margins of our books
Oh our bibles took worse beatings
Than our bodies took

But then Jesus didn't know your name
He didn't recognize your face
You go to sign on the line
But it's the lines on MY face
That tell the story of the old days

Oh, you can be a city boy
City boy
You can be a city boy now
Oh you can be a city boy
City boy
You don't have to believe
Just don't forget me, just don't for get me!

REGGIE:
Ooooooh

JO:
Jesus taught us how to sell our goods
And how to go out walking in the nightwoods
He said "don't expect to see me and don't expect to rest"
Turns out faith is just a long request

JO, SHAUN:
Oh Ohhh Oh Ohhh
Oh Ohhh Oh Ohhh

JO, SHAUN, REGGIE:
Oh Ohhh Oh Ohhh
Oh Ohhh Oh Ohhh

JO:
My friend don't forget me
When you can't see me
