Young lovers huddled on te back seats,
Just rtying to catch a moment of peace,
We sat with hte Rat Pack up on the screen.

They were romancing some moviestar beauty queen,
That we'd never even dreamed,
And they rode in the slickest cars we'd ever seen.

This life was one we'd never been told,
And we were sold before they kicked us out in the cold,
We took our shelter on the backstreets.
From the black rain falling,
The black rain falling.

Those barefoot petticoat girls that used to sit and talk all day,
Sipping their icy drinks in that soft summer way,
Leaning against the bonnets and bars that would let them have their say,
Well now those barefoot petticoat girls have gone away.

I found them just the other day,
Silent and growing old they, they waste away,
They took their shelter on the backstreets,
From the black rain falling,
The black rain falling.

Well, on those streets they're drowning, shooting curses at the sky,
Now they just lie down and take it, lie down and wait to die,
And they're hiding in their thousands, damning all the lies,
When it's the truth that's stealing everything - they give them selves a price...

The train for the lost souls and thieves and fallen kings and queens,
And all other broken majesties and tragedies,
Keeps on coming up behing me, but I'm running out of steam,
I'd keep on going but I'm soaked form my head to my feet,
In black rain falling,
In black rain falling,
Black rain falling,
Black rain falling.
