What do we HAVE to know about you to really know you?

"I curse the sun in the summer; burns me up 'til I'm blind,

I curse the cold in the winter, but I don't really mind,

If they asked any money, I would give any money to the sun, and the wind, and the rain to be kind.

Prayed the rain to keep up, but it kept coming down,

Washed my hands of it all, but it's all over town,

I would give any money to see the sky again sunny, but I'll let it rain, really pour,

Salt my tears, let me drown.

 Can the dirt in the ground sprout a seed all alone?

Can the dirt in my heart go away on it's own?

If you asked me for money, I would give you the money to make the rain wash the stain, take my shame and go home, yeah.

 Rain on, (come-a, come-a, come down on me)

Rain on, (come-a, come-a, come down on me)

Rain on, (come-a, come-a, come down on me)

Rain on, (come down on me)

Ooh, the rain kept falling in love, oh, in love."  The 77s
