The Lyrics

just not enough songs you can write about "come on eileen" (although most belong in Whatfreaks) this is however, about Tropical storm Arlene
poor wet holiday
said it's comin' on the radio
metter move inland and pronto
our children cried and cried and alone, who'd blame them?
now we're gone, so gone, now I must say more than ever
go dry get dry get dry no more rain
and we can bask in sunshine summers

run from Arlene, she's wet and she's mean,
at this moment, she has everything,
I wear my rain sweats, but now I'll confess
I sweat dirty,
I run from Arlene..

these people down here have a beaten down hatch
sunken eyes, drawn faces
they're now resigned to what their fate is
but not me, no not me,
I'll just fly to better weather
Arlene, I'll miss your winds forever

run from Arlene, she's wet and she's mean,
at this moment, she has everything,
I wear my rain sweats, but now I'll confess
I sweat dirty,
I run from Arlene..


come on, Arlene's packjed with rain,
Arlene, she can cause you pain
now we will know, how her winds blow, oh lets see
she makes me bloe woo-oo
now I hate this nasty weather,
I'm runnin away
I say go dry get dry get dry no more rain
and we can bask in sunshine summers

run from Arlene, she's wet and she's mean,
at this moment, she has everything,
I wear my rain sweats, but now I'll confess
I sweat dirty,
I run from Arlene..

Welcome back Malcolm. I saw this news story and came up with an identical title for it. I can cross this off the list too. 5s. PS- The name of the OS doesn't really need changing for whatfreaks, does it?
