I Think It's Going to Rain Today

Album: Randy Newman (1968)
  • Broken windows and empty hallways
    A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
    Human kindness is overflowing
    And I think it's going to rain today

    Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
    With frozen smiles to chase love away
    Human kindness is overflowing
    And I think it's going to rain today

    Lonely, lonely
    Tin can at my feet
    Think I'll kick it down the street
    That's the way to treat a friend

    Bright before me the signs implore me
    To help the needy and show them the way
    Human kindness is overflowing
    And I think it's going to rain today Writer/s: Randy Newman
