Orange and lemon raincoats
Roll and tumble together
Just liked fruit tipped from a tray

Pineapple wet heads
Watch new hairdos crumble
As scenery, sunlight shifts away

Ballet for a rainy day
Silent film of melting miracle play

Apples and cherries
Are varnished in water
Despite striped awnings bright dismay

I push my paintbrush
To conjure a new world
While this one is slowly washed away

Ballet for a rainy day
Silent film of melting miracle play
Dancing out there through my window
To the backdrop of a slow descending gray

When it rains, it rains
All the colors in my paintbox
When it rains, it rains
Tickets for the front row seats
Up on the rooftops

Orange and lemon raincoats
Roll and tumble together
Dropped in diamond disarray

Ballet for a rainy day
Silent film of melting miracle play
Dancing out there through my window
Behind the curtain silver falling

Ballet for a rainy day
Silent film of melting miracle play
Dancing out there through my window
To the backdrop of a slow descending gray
