I Wish It Would Rain
Gladys Knight & The Pips Lyrics

Sunshine blue skies please go away
The girl has found another and gone away.
With her went my future my life is filled with gloom
So day after day I stay locked up in my room.
I know to you, it might sound strange but I wish it would rain,

'Cause so badly I wanna go outside
But everyone knows that a man ain't supposed to cry
Listen, I gotta cry 'cause crying eases the pain,
Oh yeah, people this hurt I feel inside.
Words could never explain, I just wish it would rain.

Day in day out my tear-stained face
Pressed against the window pain,
My eyes search the skies desperately for rain,
Cause rain-drops will hide my tear -drops
And no one will ever know that I'm crying,
Crying when I go outside.
To the world outside my tears,
I refuse to explain, oh I wish it would rain,
Let it rain, let it rain.
I need rain to disguise the tears in my eyes.
Oh, let it rain.
I'm a man and I got my pride
Til' it rains I'm gonna stay inside and let it rain.

Ooh-ooh-ooh, hah
Sunshine, blue skies
Please go away
My love has found another
And gone away

With him went my future
My life is filled with gloom
So day after day
I stay locked up in my room

I know to you
It might sound strange
But I wish it would rain
(How I wish that it would rain)
Let it rain, rain, rain, rain

So badly, so badly
I want to go outside
(Such a lovely day)
But I can't stop these tears
From fallin' from my eyes

Listen, I gotta cry
'Cause cryin' eases the pain
Oh, yes it does
(Oh, yes it does)
(Oh, yes it does)

I LOVE the Temptations... David Ruffin, geez, how do you say perfect... This version by Gladys Knight is out of the park, out of this world... off the charts! Goes to show, great artistry is timeless.
