Acid Rain

The rain came down,
I heard the sound of yesterday's tv.
Rain came down,
Burning down the highway.
Rain keeps falling;
Raindrops keep on fooling me.
Rain keeps falling,
Raindrops keep on getting in my eyes.

[hear the cough? 0:56]

The rain fell down,
I heard the sound of yesterday's tv.
Rain fell down,
I heard the sound upon the trees.
The words keep failing;
Words that keep on fooling me.
Raindrops falling,
Falling in my eyes.

Every time it rains, I turn the tv on.
Every time it rains, I run away and hide.
Every time it rains, I run on home alone.
Every time it rains - acid rain,
Acid stupid rain.
Heard the rain,
I said rain, I said stupid.

Rain keeps falling, falling on us everyone;
Rain keeps falling, burning in our eyes.

Every time it rains, I run away and hide.
Every time it rains, I cover up my head.
Every time it rains, I run into my house.

{Elephant talk guitar solo by Barry Reynolds}

Every time it rains, burning in my eyes.
Every time it rains, I run on down the night.
Every time it rains, I cover up my eyes
Every time it rains, I run on home to my house.
Every time it rains, I've got to call the children home.
Every time it rains, I cover up my head.
Every time it rains, I cover up my garden.
Every time it rains, dripping in my eyes.

Every time it rains, acid rain.
You can't fool me, it's not water at all;
Just acid rain, dripping from the skies.
Acid rain, just burning in my eyes.

Environmental song, sort of an upswing towards contributing to the Turning The Tide project by professor David Bellamy, in 1986.
