Lyrics

Listen to the pouring rain
Listen to it pour,
And with every drop of rain
You know I love you more

Let it rain all night long,
Let my love for you go strong,
As long as we’re together
Who cares about the weather?

Listen to the falling rain,
Listen to it fall,
And with every drop of rain,
I can hear you call,
Call my name right out loud,
I can here above the clouds
And I’m here among the puddles,
You and I together huddle.

Listen to the falling rain,
Listen to the rain…

It’s raining,
It’s pouring,
The old man is snoring,
Went to bed
And bumped his head,
He couldn’t get up in the morning,

Listen to the falling rain,
Listen to the rain.
