Billy said this town is dying,
He was fighting everything in sight,
I used to meet him down at his cafe,
And the other on the writing on the wall.
'cause we weren't really scared,
And all he'd say was rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain,
We gotta leave this town.
And glover was a dancer,
In the corner of the room
Barry 'n me, we used to escape, playing i go ape
Hey babe, come over here, let me buy you a beer, what's your name,
You ain't what i want, you ain't what i need,
?? you're ugly.
Rain, rain, rain,
Rain, rain, rain.

Somewhere in the dark i got scared 'cause i knew i was gonna loose.
You're going nuts.
There was billy and glover and pacer and taylor and valerie and barry
He said "i went to london once, came back,
And it was still pouring down,
Rain, rain, rain,
Rain, rain, rain."
Never coming back again.
Boy, you really messed up my brain.
All of that rain rain rain,
Rain rain rain

Take your washing off the line.
Take the washing off the line.
It's gonna rain.
