The Sun And The Rain
Madness Lyrics


It's raining again
I'm hearing its pitter patter down
It's wet in the street
Reflecting the lights and splashing feet

Nowhere to go
And nothing I have to do, have to do

It's raining again
I follow the Christmas lights down town
I'm leaving the flow
Of people walking all around, round and round

I hear the sound of rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears
I can feel my troubles running down
Disappear into the silent sound

Just walking along
My clothes are soaked right through to the skin
I haven't a doubt that this is what life is all about
The sun and the rain

Scraps of brain washing down the drain
I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown

It's raining again
A crack in the clouds reveals blue skies
I've been feeling so low
(Low)
But now everything is on my side, the sun and the rain

Walk with me fill my heart again
I hear the rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears
I can feel my troubles running down
Disappear into the silent sound

I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown

It's raining again,
I'm hearing its pitter patter down.
It's wet in the street
Reflecting the lights and splashing feet,
Nowhere to go,
And nothing I have to do, have to do.

It's raining again,
I follow the Christmas lights down town.
I'm leaving the flow
Of people walking all around,
Round and round,

I hear the sound of rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.

Just walking along,
My clothes are soaked right through to the skin,
I haven't a doubt, that this is what life is all about,
The sun and the rain.
Scraps of brain washing down the drain.

I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.

It's raining again
A crack in the clouds reveals blue skies
I've been feeling so low(low)
But now everything is on my side
The sun and the rain.
Walk with me fill my heart again

I hear the rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.

I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.

Do de do do de do do do

This song - its tune, melody and atmosphere - makes me picture picture a classic football match deep into November between Newcastle United and Sheffield Wednesday (back in the day when both were really good football teams), with lots of rain - that's almost sleet - pouring down on a very cold November evening. And there's Alan Shearer for Newcastle as one of the main attacking threat against Wednesday, while Andy Booth for Wednesday as one of the main attacking threat against Newcastle.

The match itself turns into a sloppy affair with loads of tackles and fouls committed on a wet, muddy pitch, then half-time comes. Shearer decides to have some of his Secret Weapon - ice-cold orange juice (which suits Newcastle's yellow away kit) - in Newcastle's dressing-room, while Booth decides to have some of his own Secret Weapon - ice-cold blueberry juice while chewing a white ice spearmint (which suits Wednesday's blue-and-white home kit) in Wednesday's dressing room.

Both players, now rejuvenated, help to motivate their respective team-mates and come up with a plan. In the 2nd half, both teams give their all in lots of thrilling end-to-end attacking play, and both Shearer and Booth manage to score a hat-trick for their respective teams. The match seems destined to end 3-3, but then Shearer manages to win a corner for Newcastle and also suddenly remembers one other Secret Weapon he has - a tiny piece of tuna with mayo on bread from a tuna mayo sandwich he had eaten prior to the match, tucked away deep inside one of his shorts pockets. He quickly eats it with his back turned - so that no-one can catch him in the act except his nearby fans, who are on his side anyway lol - and then turns around to take the corner from the side that favours his right foot. Inspired by the taste of the tuna mayo, he kicks a one-in-a-million cross with amazing power, height, depth, swerve, and spin, and the ball miraculously evades everyone and drops into the right-hand top corner of the net. Incredible! At first, no-one can believe what's just happened, and then all of Newcastle's players and fans erupt with sheer jubilation, amazement and wonder.

Take nothing away from Wednesday though - they took Newcastle right down to the wire with superb play of their own. Then, as Shearer feels a wee bit sorry for Wednesday, he offers Booth his condolences, but then Booth - himself a fan of Madness and remembering some lyrics word-for-word - says to Shearer "Don't worry about me mate. I had the best time of my life out there. I could feel the rain falling on my face, I could say there is no better place. Standing up and then falling down, in so much that I could almost drown. I was so immersed in all of that that I clean forgot to use my own final Secret Weapon lol. I have an idea what yours was mate ;-)"

So, what could be better than that - Booth seeing the positive side of all the rain, and Shearer winning the match for Newcastle and yet showing such good camaraderie to Booth? I could quite imagine Madness enjoying seeing these very same sorts of qualities in a match between Arsenal and Spurs - seeing as Madness come from the North end of London after all :-) ;-)

It's raining again,
I'm hearing its pitter patter down.
It's wet in the street
Reflecting the lights and splashing feet,
Nowhere to go,
And nothing I have to do, have to do.
It's raining again,
I follow the Christmas lights down town.
I'm leaving the flow
Of people walking all around,
Round and round,
I hear the sound of rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.
Just walking along,
My clothes are soaked right through to the skin,
I haven't a doubt, that this is what life is all about,
The sun and the rain.
Scraps of paper(???) washing down the drain.
I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.
It's raining again
A crack in the clouds reveals blue skies
I've been feeling so low(low)
But now everything is on my side
The sun and the rain.
Walk with me fill my heart again
I hear the rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.
I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.
Do de do do de do do do
Do de do de do de do do do

Because they were always pissing about, I don't think people realised how good Madness were as songwriters. This is an absolute classic!

Andrew JS

@Raphael Mann Thanks for replying.

Raphael Mann

@Andrew JS All seven of them had a hand in the song-writing. Some more consistently than others, but they all chipped in.

Raphael Mann

I think you're right @walleyrange - It's true that they were well loved at the time, and the nuttiness helped them to succeed; but they never get talked about nowadays with the respect they deserve - they're not really part of the 'canon' of great pop music, along with The Beatles & The Kinks & Motown and so on, and they should be because they were that good. They were head and shoulders above most through the 80s, as a singles band.

Always and forever, thank you to Great Britain and the British people whose creativity, since the 1960s, has given the rest of the World hundreds of unique bands such as the Madness and music of unparalleled beauty, quirkiness and atmosphere. What would our lives have been without British bands? Thank you from Sicily.
