lyrics

Rain, rain on this spring parade
Rain on this carnival day
Wind, blow like a hurricane
Blow through and show your rage

Rain, come down and drench our day
Quench fun that still remains
Wind, a force that can still evade
Trumpets and drums that play

(Silence the trumpets and close the ground
Unspend the tokens and stop the sounds
The bells and the whistles
The shrieking crowd)

They must stay…stay away until…

Wait, for smells that don’t wash away
Onions and drinking games
Rain, tumble down anyway
Like always on carnival day

Rain, rain on this spring parade
Rain on this carnival day
Wait, for smells that don’t wash away
Onions and drinking games

Rain, tumble down anyway

Stay away until…

Next year we’ll march with the marching band
We’ll fight and we’ll bleed and we’ll ring our hands
We’ll meet by the waltzer and we will play
We’ll meet by the waltzer and we will play

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
