Colin Hay — Children On Parade lyrics

All the girls and boys are gone away
Never really had much to say
They took all their clothes and their shoes
Politely asked to be excused
They're the children on parade
They have secrets that they share
They're the children on parade
And nobody knows
Nobody knows

All the broken toys lie on the floor
There's no more laughter from down the hall
Mirror mirror mirror on the wall
Whatever could have happened to them all

To the children on parade
And all the secrets that they share
They're the children on parade
And nobody knows
Nobody knows

All across the world, just yesterday
All the girls and boys just went away
They took off all their clothes and their shoes
I'd love to someday hear all the news

About the children on parade
And about all the secrets that they share
They're the children on parade
And nobody knows
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
