If it keeps on rainin'
--If it keeps on rainin'--
If it keeps on rainin'
--If it keeps on rainin'--
The levee's goin' to break
--The people's goin' to break--
The levee's goin' to break
--The people's goin' to break--
If it keeps on rainin'
--If it keeps on rainin'--
The levee's goin' to break
--The people's goin' to break--

When the levee breaks
When the levee breaks
When the levee breaks
We'll have no place to stay

Mean old levee
--Mean old levee--
Mean old levee
--Mean old levee--
Taught me how to weep and moan
--Taught me how to weep and moan--
Taught me how to weep and moan
--Taught me how to weep and moan--
Mean old levee
--Mean old levee--
Taught me how to weep and moan
--Taught me how to weep and moan--

When the levee breaks
When the levee breaks
When the levee breaks
We'll have no place to stay

All last night
--All last night--
All last night
--All last night--
I sat on the levee and moan
--Oh cryin' won't help you--
I sat on the levee and moan
--I sat on the levee and moan--
Prayin' won't do you no good
--I sat on the levee and moan--
All last night
--All last night--
Oh cryin' won't help you
--I sat on the levee and moan--
Prayin' won't do you no good
--I sat on the levee and moan--

When the levee breaks
When the levee breaks
When the levee breaks
We'll have no place to stay
