Soon It's Gonna Rain


“Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that
no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external
can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating
the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower,
but any foolish child can pull it to pieces
.”

- Og Mandino
(12 Dec 1923 - 03 Sept 1996)

    Soon It's Gonna Rain

    From the 1960 musical comedy, The Fantasticks

    Lyrics by Tom Jones (b. 1928); Music by Harvey Schmidt (b.12 Sept 1929)


    Hear how the wind begins to whisper.
    See how the leaves go streaming by.
    Smell how the velvet rain is falling,
    Out where the fields are warm and dry.
    Now is the time to run inside and stay.
    Now is the time to find a hideaway
    Where we can stay.

    Soon it's gonna rain.
    I can see it.
    Soon it's gonna rain.
    I can tell.
    Soon it's gonna rain.
    What are we gonna do?

    Soon it's gonna rain.
    I can feel it.
    Soon it's gonna rain.
    I can tell.
    Soon it's gonna rain.
    What'll we do with you?

    We'll find four limbs of a tree.
    We'll build four walls and a floor.
    We'll bind it over with leaves,
    And run inside to stay.

    Then we'll let it rain.
    We'll not fell it.
    Then we'll let it rain,
    Rain pell-mell.

    And we'll not complain
    If it never stops at all.
    We'll live and love
    Within our own four walls.

    We'll find four limbs of a tree.
    We'll build four walls and a floor.
    We'll bind it over with leaves,
    And run inside to stay.

    Soon it's gonna rain.
    Come run inside to stay!
    Soon it's gonna rain.
    For soon it's gonna rain.
    I can see it.
    I can feel it.
    Run inside and...

    Then we'll let it rain.
    We'll not feel it.
    Then we'll let it rain.
    Ran pell-mell.

    And we'll not complain
    - Happy ending...
    If it never stops at all.
    Then we'll let it rain.
    Why complain?

    We'll live and love within our walls.
    Happily we'll live and love,
    No cares at all.
    Happily we'll live and love
    Within our castle walls.
