You wore your Sunday best
I wore my summer dress
At the Easter bank holiday parade

You said: 'It seems like a still
From some Nineteen Sixties foreign film"
I said: " I hope I always feel this way"
Easter parade
Easter parade

The ferry boat came into land
As we lay there upon the sand
And the carnival crowd wandered away

The afternoon began to fade
My make up smudged across your face
You said: "I wish that I could stay"
Easter parade
Easter parade

-Time passes-

At the station I came to wait
We said good-bye, you caught the train
I walked back home along the bay

I remember that summer dress
Though these days I wear something less
Provincial at the
Easter parade
Easter parade

I had this song stuck in my head yesterday, actually, which was appropriate.

Happy Easter!

Are you coming to NYC again anytime this year? I couldn't make it to Joe's Pub last year. :/

Thanks again and much love.

Hello Clenkerwell Kid,
I've just discovered your blog, although I'm a big fan of your Real Tuesday Weld since a long time ago. How come I didn´t know your blog I don´t know... It's never too late.
The fact is that I'm enjoying it a lot.
In this particular entry I like the Banksy picture. I strongly recommend to everyone who doesn´t know his work to visit his webpage:

Greetings from Spain
