lyrics

The rain in Spain
Refrain from touching
My things and I will
Do the same to yours
Be in bed by eight
Perform all your chores

The rain in Spain
Abstain from red meat
Cute in the lobby
Of Ellis Hall
The Sound and the Fury
Boy's read it all

And he said...

I can give you what you want
And I can give you what you need
(Summer, fall)
And I can cook you meals and give
Suggestions on what to read
(Winter, spring)

The rain in Spain
Is a tad dread-
Full of the slight and
Rife with slip
A bird in the hand
Ain't worth the trip

The rain in Spain
Remain friends, though
The journey's a wild one
And one can't predict
The passage of time
A union derelict

And he said...

I can give you what you want
And I can give you what you need
(Summer, fall)
And I can cook you meals and give
Suggestions on what to read
(Winter, spring)
