WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO THE RAIN
The Searchers


Just a little rain falling all around

The grass lifts its head to the heavenly sound

Just a little rain, just a little rain

What have they done to the rain


Just a little boy standing in the rain

The gentle rain that falls for years

And the grass is gone, the boy disappears

And rain keeps falling like helpless tears

And what have they done to the rain


Just a little breeze out of the sky

The leaves nod their head as the breeze blows by

Just a little breeze with some smoke in its eye

What have they done to the rain


Just a little boy standing in the rain

The gentle rain that falls for years

And the grass is gone, the boy disappears

And rain keeps falling like helpless tears

And what have they done to the rain

What have they done to the rain
