Don't tell me not to fly
I've simply got to
If someone takes a spill 
It's me and not you
Don't bring around the cloud to rain on my parade 

Don't tell me not to leave 
Just sit and putter 
Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter 
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade 

I'll march my band out
I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir
I guess I didn't make it

But whether I'm the rose of sheer perfection
A freckle on the nose of life's complexion 
A Cinderella or a shine apple of an eye
I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, life is juicy  Juicy and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir

Get ready for me love
'Cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march 
My heart's a drummer 
Don't bring around the cloud to rain on my parade 

Yes, sir
No, sir
I'm gonna live and live now
Get what I want, I know how
All that the law will allow 
One roll for the whole shebang
One throw that bell will go clang  Though I'm alone I'm a gang
Eye on the target and wham
One shot, one gun shot and bam

Hey, world, here I am
Get ready for me life, 'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer 
Nobody, no, nobody, is gonna rain on my parade!
