About Rain, Rain (Don’t Go Away)


Rain, rain, don’t go away
Rain all night and rain all day
Rain, oh rain, stay with me
Keep my tears company

Rain, I’m all alone
Silent room and silent phone
Gentle rain, quiet rain
Soothe my heart, ease my pain

Feelin’ a way that I do
A sunny day would be in vain
When I’m feelin’ so low and so blue
There’s nothing as right as the rain

So rain, rain, don’t go away
Keep on rainin’ soft and gray
Keep my tears company
‘Til my baby comes back to me
