I think it's going to rain today, Nina Simone

I think it's going to rain today

Nina Simone




Lyrics

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's gonna rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen faces to keep love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's gonna rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
I think I'll kick it down the street
Tin can at my feet
I think I'll kick it down the street
Why not?
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
Help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's gonna rain today

I hope it's gonna rain today, yeah
I hope it's gonna rain today, yeah
I think it's gonna rain today, yeah
I think it's gonna rain today

Writer: Randy Newman
