Text:

Hello misfortune, how’s my old friend Mr. Misery?
I’ve been away so long I bet you think you seen the last of me
I got no bed to rest my head
No doors or walls or window pane
Now all I needed was the rain
Rain, rain, rain, rain

Met a little honey at the Buzzin’ Bumble Bee Cafe
Yes, I did
One drink and all my money and that honeybee had flown away
I’m ’bout as low as I can go
I don’t really mean to complain
Now all I needed was the rain
Rain, rain rain rain

All I needed was this rain
All I needed was the rain, mmm-mmm-mmm
