Hey, the roof is leakin’ and the rain’s fallin’ on my head, it won’t stop
The roof is leakin’ and the rain’s fallin’ on my head, I need a mop
I cried so hard, teardrops on my bed, drippity-drop (yes)

She packed up her bags and she moved out on the midnight train (drip drip) she’s
got no brain (drippity-drop)
She packed up her bag and she moved out on the midnight train, (drip drip) the
girl’s insane (drippity-drop)
She took my heart, tears rollin’ down my drain, (drip drip) just like rain (drippity-
drop)

My buddy come to see me to give me a tip, tip, tip
I said “now listen here friend, I tell ya I’m hip, hip, hip”
“Why don’t ya mind your own business, shut your lip, lip, lip”
“I know when my girl’s gimme me the slip, slip, slip”

I said the roof is leakin’, rain’s fallin’ on my head, (drip drip) oh yeah (drippity-drop)
I cried so hard, teardrops on my bed, on the floor (drippity-drop) that’s what I said

Well, my buddy come to see me to give me a tip, tip, tip
I said “now listen here friend, I tell ya I’m hip, hip, hip”
“Why don’t ya mind your own business, close your lip, lip, lip”
“I know when my girl’s gimme me the slip, slip, slip”

I said the roof is leakin’, rain’s fallin’ on my head (drip-drip) drippity drop (drip-drip)
Well, I cried so hard, tears flowin’ on my bed (drip-drip)
On the floor (drippity drop) on the rug, and on the wall yeah
