Parade The Picture Show Lyrics

Last updated: 11/05/2011 11:00:00 AM

FRANKIE: Well hey sunshine!
MARY: Sunshine? Looks like rain to me
FRANKIE: Not in here it don't.
MARY: Why Frankie Epps, quit that, you hear?
FRANKIE: What? I ain't doin' anything!

I'm gonna go to the picture show
There's a movie I've got to see
You know the one, called "The Silver Gun"
Well, I been watchin' since Chapter Three
I can't wait, it's at eight
But I was wonderin' if you're free

MARY:
Go on, go on, go on, go on
You know my mama'd never let me till I turn sixteen
Go on, go on, go on, go on
Besides I only go to pictures that I haven't seen

FRANKIE: Well when do you turn sixteen?
MARY: Two years from next June.
FRANKIE: Too bad about your mama...
MARY: Too bad for you!
FRANKIE:
I know a spot near McConnach's lot
Where you can see the parade real clear
I got a book, you wanna take a look?
It's called "The Theif and the Brigadier"
I got gum, you want some?

MARY:
I haven't chewed gum fer a year!

FRANKIE:
Go on, go on, go on, go on
I bet your mama'd let me take you to the picture show

MARY:
Go on, go on, go on, go on
I guess you weren't really listening when I said "No!"

Why not ask Iola Stover
Her mama lets her do whatever she wants

FRANKIE:
I was hopin' I could go with you

MARY:
Go on ask Iola Stover
Her mama lets her see whoever she wants

FRANKIE:
Well, maybe I will

MARY:
I hope you do

FRANKIE: Hey, Where you goin'?
MARY: To the factory, I didn't get my pay this week
FRANKIE: Okay. I'll see you around.
MARY: At the picture show
FRANKIE: What? I thought your mama wouldn't let you.
MARY: She will with Essie and Betty-Jean. Just not with you.
FRANKIE: Bye sunshine!
De de de de de de de de de de
Go on, go on, go on, go on...

Well, Iola! You goin' to the pictures tonight?
