Everybody's gonna catch their death
In the pouring rain
Everybody better hold their breath
In the pouring rain
Everybody's gonna walk on by
Everbody hide away
Everbody's gonna pull their blinds
And stay inside and pass these days
I know I've seen a lot
Lord knows sometimes I've cried
But I know we can't sit like this
And shake our fists
While lovers kiss and die
In the pouring rain

I was hungry and I'm hungry still
And now it's pouring rain
I look o.k. but I've been feeling ill
And now it's pouring rain
Well hush now baby, don't you cry
Tears won't wipe away the pain
There's a storm been blowing through the night
That's washed us down with lethal rain
Sometime's this world's too big
Sometime's we feel too small
Sometimes you'll have to pick me up
When I grow tired
Stumble, trip and fall
In the pouring rain

I'm gonna walk on by
Don't wanna see you cry
I'm gonna walk on by
In the pouring rain
