If the rain comes they run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If the rain comes,
If the rain comes.

When the sun shines, they sleep in the shade
And sip their lemonade
When the sun shines,
When the sun shines.

Rain, I don’t mind,
Shine, the weather’s fine.

I can show you that when it starts to rain
Everything’s the same
When the rain comes down,
I can show you,
I can show you.

Rain, I don’t mind,
Shine, the weather’s fine.

Can you hear me that when to rains
And shines it’s just a state of  mind
Can you hear me,
Can you hear me?
