The Lyrics

Raining on me today? Coincidence? I think not.
Never seem to know about the rain to come
Yes, the weather service never knows
And I wonder why I ever wash my car
When I do the thunderstorm just grows

Precipitation, precipitation
Is getting me wet
I find it upsetting

So they told me that I wouldn't need an umbrella
And tonight the skies would be so clear
Now I am standing in a huge downpour
And I wish those weathermen were standing here with me

Precipitation, precipitation
Is getting me wet
I find it upsetting

And tomorrow I won't curse the weather
I'll be coughing, in my bed I will stay
And I'll try not to stuff up and die right then
I'll be right here, cause these are the bad cold days

Since you live in LA, and I live in Vegas, precipitation is an event in itself. Great job!

555. I don't know the orginal song, but your poetry is good. You reflect my sentiments - I hate the dampness.

Yep - I agree - the 2 week long LA 'rain event' is getting tiresome....

Actually Tim, I live in San Jose, but I used to live in thet hell-hole. And I really don't mind the rain, but writing happy a song about it has been done to death.

For the rain song, we all vote Rick some fives, 'cause he'll enrich our lives, for the rain song, for the rain song.
