one man parade lyrics – james taylor

do believe i’m gonna clap my hands
think i might tap my feet
put together a one man band
take a walk on down the street
have a one man parade
n*body needs to know
’cause i’m right good of holding on to secrets
and don’t believe they show

all i want is a little dog
to be walking at my right hand
taking a breeze just as free as you please
maybe checking out occasional garbage cans
talking bout a one dog, y’all
n*body’s friend but mine
hey now, you can say he’s looking kind of funky
but i do believe it suits me just fine

we were off road again
a was wondering what to do
ah, but honalei,
it was pouring down rain
baby she had the low down blues

hey now, i was looking for my walking cane
tying on my highway shoes
thinking ’bout a one man parade, y’all
n*body, n*body, n*body, n*body

i’m right good at holding on, holding on, holding on

honalei, it’s raining
honalei, (sure ‘nuf) it’s raining (listen here)
honalei (it’s rainin’)
honalei (muddy waters)

talking ’bout a one man parade, y’all
n*body, n*body, n*body, n*body
i’m right good at holding on, holding on, holding on
la, la, la
