Such a long time, 1968,
When I thought I had the world by the tail.
Never thinking it could simmer.
Who'd of thought the style was to fail?

The drought is over, yes it's over for me.
The drought is over, it's plain to see.
Graced with love now, where before I was poor.
I see beauty where there was none before.
The drought is over, yes it is.
The drought is over, yeah.

Mm... Mm,

It's been a struggle, but I made it through
And the rain is falling sweetly on me.
Like a flower I am growing and it's feeling so good to me.
The drought is over, yes it's over for me.
The drought is over, it's plain to see.
When the sunshines, it's so wonderful I know.
But without rain drops the pretty flowers won't grow.
The drought is over, yeah.
The drought is over, yeah.

The drought is over, yes it's over for me.
The drought is over, it's plain to see.
The drought is over, yeah that was the end.
The drought is over, Barry Gordy's my friend.
The drought is over, yay.
The drought is over, yeah.

The drought is over, Mmm it's plain to see.
The drought is over, it's all over for me.
We've been struggling for awhile, but I still want to smile.
Yeah, hay oh yeah, yeah, hay
The drought is over, it's over for me.
The drought is over, Lord, it's plain to see.
The drought is over, that was the end...
The drought is over, Barry Gordy's my friend.

Whoah Barry, Whoah Barry,
Make things merry, Whoah don't you know.
Yeah, hey, yeah, hey,
Yeah, hey
Thank God (That it's over!)
