Rain Dogs

Album: Rain Dogs (1985)
  • Inside a broken clock
    Splashing the wine
    With all the Rain Dogs
    Taxi, we'd rather walk
    Huddle a doorway with the Rain Dogs
    For I am a Rain Dog, too

    Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
    For it was all ripe for dreaming
    Oh, how we danced away all of the lights
    We've always been out of our minds

    The Rum pours strong and thin
    Beat out the dustman
    With the Rain Dogs
    Aboard a shipwreck train
    Give my umbrella to the Rain Dogs
    For I am a Rain Dog, too

    Oh, how we danced with the Rose of Tralee
    Her long hair black as a raven
    Oh, how we danced and you whispered to me
    You'll never be going back home

    Oh, how we danced with the Rose of Tralee
    Her long hair black as a raven
    Oh, how we danced and you whispered to me
    You'll never be going back home, aah Writer/s: THOMAS ALAN WAITS
