You gone lost in the crowd
The waves of people in Chinatown
Can't get behind this mystery
Do you believe everything you see?

Just a shadow in the streetlight
Just a shadow on the wall
A silhouette face in the darkness
I've been waiting for your call

We'll go marching in the night parade
We'll be marching in the night parade

I combed the streets like cloak and dagger
I put the word out on the waterfront
We were living hard, living fast
Outrunning ghosts from the past

Just a shadow in the moonlight
Just a shadow, shadow on the wall
A silhouette, the kiss of death
Did somebody take the fall?

We'll go marching in the night parade
We'll be marching in the night parade

Oh Mary, Mary, Mary
I'm knocking on your door
Mary, Mary sanctuary can't see you no more
From out of the past a stranger came
And carried you away
I stood on the corner the scene of the crime
And I could hear her say

We'll be marching in the night parade
We'll be marching, marching in the night parade

We'll go marching, marching on the, in the night parade
We'll go marching, marching in the night parade
In the night parade

Are we all living in a street opera?
Are we just living in a street opera?

Oh we'll be marching, oh oh in the night parade
Oh Lord, we'll be marching, marching out in the night parade
In the night parade

Walking the night beat the rhythm of the street
Moving to the heartbeat of the city, the city
Walking the night beat the rhythm of the street
Moving to the heartbeat of the city, the city
Way downtown
Moving to the heartbeat of the city

We'll be marching in the night parade
We'll be marching in the night parade
We'll be marching in the night parade
