  • Well she's kinda pretty
    Drives a big car too
    And when I hold her in my arms
    I never know what to do
    She's got everything she needs
    What does she need me for
    Just a crazy fool comin' back for more
    And I know she's no good
    Can't blame her but I know I should
    Everybody says-a watch out boy
    She'll break your heart like it was a toy

    You better save it for a rainy day
    You better save it for a rainy day

    Well I'd leave in a minute if I only could
    But when she touches me
    It makes me feel so good
    My heart's in her hand this is sure a mess
    There's no way I say "no"
    When she says "yes, yes, yes!"

    Take me, shake me and tell me this ain't a dream
    Everybody says-a watch out boy
    She'll break your heart like it was a toy

    You better save it for a rainy day
    You better save it for a rainy day

    Save it for a rainy day
    You better save it for a rainy day
    You better (save it) save it for a rainy day
    You better (save it) save it for a rainy day
    (Oh, I'm talking to you)
    You better (save it) save it for a rainy day
    (Ah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
    You better (save it) save it for a rainy day
    (Ah-ah, yeah yeah I'm talking to you) Writer/s: STEPHEN BISHOP

  • Brent from Denair, CaStephen Bishop: the man playing his guitar in the middle of the stairway in Animal House. He starts singing The Riddle Song and Belushi smashes his guitar! Classic scene in a classic movie!
  • Ted from Phoenix, AzOut of his four top 40 singles, this one is my personal favorite. Amidst the acoustic guitars, I never recognized Chaka Khan's voice as doing the wailing. With its well-engineered bass and treble, this song still sounds great on the radio today.
