The Rain -Oran «Juice» Jones

(Rain falling, thunder rolling)

I saw you (and him) walking in the rain.
You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.

Tossing and turning, another sleepless night.
The rain crashes against my window pane.
Jumped into my car, didn’t drive too far.
That moment I knew I would never be the same.

I saw you (and him) walking in the rain.
You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.
I saw you (and him) walking in the rain.
You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.

Now here you are begging to me
To give our love another try.
Girl, I love you and I’ll always will,
But darling, right now, I’ve got to say goodbye.

I saw you (and him) walking in the rain.
You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.
I saw you (and him) walking in the rain.
You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.

(I saw you walking in the rain.)
Hey! Hey, baby, how you doin’? Come on in here.
Got some hot chocolate on the stove waiting for you.
Listen, first things first, let me hang up your coat.
(You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.)
Yeah, how was your day today? Did you miss me? You did?
Yeah, I missed you too. I missed you so much I followed you today.
(I saw you walking in the rain.)
That’s right. Now close your mouth ’cause you cold busted.
Now just sit down here, just sit down here.
I’m so upset I don’t know what to do.
(You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.)
You know my first impulse was to run up on you and do a Rambo.
I was about to jam you up and flat blast both of you,
(I saw you walking in the rain.)
But I didn’t wanna mess up my $3700 lynx coat.
So instead, I chilled. That’s right, chilled.
(You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.)
I called up the bank and took out every dime.
Then I cancelled all your credit cards.
Yeah, all your charge accounts.
(I saw you (and him) walking in the rain.)
I stuck you up for every piece of jewelry I ever bought you.
That’s right, everything. (Laughing) Yeah.
(You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.)
Did fool out with me.
No, don’t go looking into that closet, ’cause everything you came here with is packed up and waiting for you in the guestroom!
(I saw you walking in the rain.)
What were you thinking? Huh? What you trying to prove?
You don’t mess with the Juice!
I gave you silk suits, blue diamonds, and Gucci handbags.
(You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.)
I gave you things you couldn’t even pronounce.
But now I can’t give you nothing but advice.
(I saw you walking in the rain.)
I hope you learned a valuable lesson from all this ’cause you’re young.
Yeah, you’re still young, and you’re gonna find somebody like me one of these days.
Until then, you know what you gotta do?
(You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.)
You gotta get on outta here with that alley cat coat-wearing, punch bucket shoe-wearing crumbcake I saw you with, ’cause you’re dismissed!
(I saw you walking in the rain.)
That’s right, silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, you know.
You without me is like corn flakes without the milk.
It’s my world, you’re just a squirrel trying to get a nut!
(You were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.)
Now get on outta here, scat! Don’t touch that coat!
