The blossoms have all been gathered Rich purples, pinks, reds and yellows With leaves of rich, rich green. The floral floats pass right on by My window looking down from high. Flanked by marching bands and tractor-vans Tanks and trucks and cars with chrome Parents ride bikes, their tots on trikes. You'll see lots of dogs and horses Perhaps even a cow or two! Girls with twirling batons and hula hoops, Veterans and students making one giant loop As gawkers wave Hello! Goodbye! Their children standing by.
