PASSION PARADE

 

People say she's lonely

others say she's wild

Friends say she's moving on

some say she's mine

Doesn't pay to be down and out 

for too long a while

'Cause Hindley street only feels like heaven 

for a little while

You drove south to Adelaide

found feet on the passion parade

Country girl

I never would have stopped you babe

what's new to love if people don't change

Country girl

Runaway

Chasing cheap replacements

swapping gin for vodka

While neon bars sparkle

in black leather brogues

In the those sugary few hours

you forget everything

and you know it don't fix nothing

but you just wanna get high

You drove south to Adelaide

found feet on the passion parade

Country girl

I never would have stopped you babe

what's new to love if people don't change

People say she's lonely

others say she's wild

Friends say she's moving on

some say she's mine

Doesn't pay to be down and out 

for too long a while

'Cause Hindley street only feels like heaven 

for a little while

and people in this town they talk

at the feet of colonel light
