About the Song

My friend died last year and the night before his funeral I knew I had a recording of him and myself singing a Beatles song in my parent’s house way back in the 70s. I found the cassette and was curious to see what else was on the tape. I found a song idea which I must have started and just put aside for nearly 40 years and thought I’ll finish that one – so I did!
The idea being a little bit of fun and nothing serious
Update Jan 21st 2017 - Much to my embarrassment that recording of mine from the 70s wasn't me working on one of my songs but me trying to learn a Darts song of the same name written by Ian Collier. Not knowing this 37 years later I've re-written most of it thinking it was an original song of mine much to utter embarrassment - I've contacted PRS etc and changing the writing ownership.
About the Recording

I asked the wonderful Amy Chalmers to sing this as well – as well as being an amazing Violin player she has a wonderful voice and boy can she harmonise.

Lyrics

It’s Raining

It’s raining – raining down on me
But I don’t care coz I’m in love you see

I’ve been waiting for you for so long
And now that you finally come
And all of this rain won’t spoil my day

It’s raining – raining down on me
But I’m happy – happy as can be

I’ve been waiting for you for so long
And now that you finally come
And this down pouring of rain
Is washing those sad feelings away
So let it rain

So real - So fine
Your kiss - Divine
Please say I do
So I can spend the rest of my life with you


I’ve been waiting for you for so long
And now that you finally come
And nothing can get in my way to darken my day

So let it rain –
