Rain by Shel Silversteen

I opened my eyesAnd looked up at the rain,And it dripped in my headAnd flowed into my brain,And all that I hear as I lie in my bedIs the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,I walk very slow,I can’t do a handstand—I might overflow,So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said—I’m just not the same since there’s rain in my head.

Rain by Shel Silversteen
I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.
I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can’t do a handstand—
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said—
I’m just not the same since there’s rain in my head.
