  • I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window
    Bringing back sweet memories
    Hey windowpane, do you remember?
    How sweet it used to be

    When we was together
    Everything was so grand
    Now that we've parted
    There's just one sound that I just can't stand

    I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window
    Bringing back sweet memories
    I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window
    'Cause he's not here with me

    Alone with the pillow
    Where his head used to lay
    I know you've got some sweet memories
    But like a window you ain't got nothin' to say

    I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window
    Bringing back sweet memories
    I can't stand the rain
    Against my window
    Just keeps on haunting me
    Hey rain, get off my window
    Because he's not here my me Writer/s: Ann Peebles, Bernard Miller, Don Bryant
