Live! - November, 1986, 1987  (Vinyl 7")  NR 17038


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 slip into 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.
I can show you, I can show you
Rain, I don't mind.
Shine, the weather's fine.

Can you hear me that when it rains and shines
It's just a state of mind.
Can you hear me, can you hear me?
