Rain for breakfast and rain for lunch
Rain for my dinner & for Sunday brunch
Rain on my picnic & on my parade
Feel like this rain trying to wash me away

Rain when it's early & rain when it's late
rain when I finally arrive at your gate
and the note says you're gone because I didn't call
but my phone wasn't working, it was all water-logged

There was a time of no rain at all
the sweet sun would shine, the starlight would fall
and my heart was happy as a flower would be
with sunshine for kisses, like yours were to me

Then the rain came then came some more
We needed that rain but not this much I'm sure
cause now all we've got is mud in our shoes
and a boatload of tears and a truckload of blues

So here I am waiting and waiting some more
til sunshine appears once again out my door
I know that it's coming it simply must be
cause ain't no damn rain make a fool out of me

Rain for breakfast and rain for lunch
Rain for my dinner & for Sunday brunch
Rain on my picnic & on my parade
But no goddamn rain gonna wash me away
I said ain't no damn rain gonna wash me away
