Marianne Faithfull What Have They Done to the Rain Lyrics


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,
A 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,
A 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 ?
And what have they done to the rain ?
