about

You've seen it before and it's made you sad. Kids with no chance because they have terrible parents yelling at them and abusing them verbally and physically every single day. If you were one of those kids and you made it into adulthood, we hope the fact that you bought this song means you came out as well adjusted as possible.

lyrics

This is your life out on display
there on the front porch
every night and every day
you never know if he's gone away to stay
is today the day?
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
Mama's got a shotgun
Daddy's got a knife
baby got a beating
'cause she wasn't "acting right"
she got in the way
she'll have to pay
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
Billy and Billy junior had a plan to strike it rich
selling dope out of the house
this will go off without a hitch
until the day they took him away
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
Mama's got a shotgun
Daddy's got a knife
baby got a beating
'cause she wasn't "acting right"
she got in the way
she'll have to pay
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
One car leaves, One car arrives
Mama screams, baby cries
day after day
all hope fades away
I hate to say
Horn honks and the rooster crows
dog barks and the thunder rolls
every day is the same
you know it's gonna rain
on The Sad Parade
I see it every day
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
