Lyrics

You?re still waving that ten-foot pole
Ten more reasons I should just stay home
I wouldn?t miss this for anything
I love to watch you swing that ten-foot pole

There?s a photograph in everybody?s heart
and it?s of home
There?s a parade and banners with your name
across the road

The marching band?s majorette
as pretty as you can get
Shines a smile cross your face
and never, ever loses pace

but you can?t see that
you can?t see that

You?re still waving that ten-foot pole
Ten more reasons I should just stay home
I wouldn?t miss this for anything
I love to watch you swing that ten-foot pole

There?s a someone who memorized your face
long ago
Every feature, every line
Every time you said, ?Hello.?

I?ve left it going for too long
what should be a speech is only a song
Your prayers are now just all yawns
what should be so near is now so far gone

but you don?t see that
you can?t see that

Don?t wait
The days are getting short
Don?t rely on lies meant to support
Some idea that you don?t even count for anything

You?re still waving that ten-foot pole
Ten more reasons I should just stay home
I wouldn?t miss this for anything
I love to watch you swing that ten-foot pole
