lyrics

Every time I walk outside, umbrella in my hand, I will curse your clouds for crying on my shoes.
Couldn’t find a better way to spend a sunny day than to drop on by and rain on my parade?

Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day.
Come around when I’m no longer near.
Rain, rain, go away, there isn’t time for us to play.
Leave me now and come another year.

It’s plain to see you make a tree from soil and a seed,
but it’s I who digs the hole and pulls the weeds.
So I will plant and you will pour, but leave without delay.
I despise your dreary skies of early May.

Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day.
Come around when I’m no longer near.
Rain, rain, go away, there isn’t time for us to play.
Leave me now and come another year.

I lived my life so high and dry,
a high-and-mighty mind without a weathervane.
But how the winds can change. The rainy skies I now embrace,
as I waken in the night to an old familiar place.

A chapel chimes two lonely times,
the light from on the street streaming down the sleepy window pane in beads.
Breathing soft and breathing slow in silent reverie
lies the love of mine, so peaceful, next to me.

Rain, rain, oh I prayed the rainy night would make her stay,
fall in love and lie with me this evening.
Rain, rain, come and play. Never mind those things I say...
