Track from Tamla 54234 (7" vinyl)

Marvin Gaye - Let's Get It On
I Wish It Would Rain


Sunshine, blue skies, please go away
My girl has found another and gone away
With her went my future, my life is filled with gloom
So day after day, I stayed locked up in my room
I know to you it might sound strange

But I wish it would rain
(How I wish that it would rain)
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Because so badly I want to go outside (Such a lovely day)
But everyone knows that a man ain’t suppose to cry, listen
I got to cry because crying eases the pain, oh yeah
People this hurt I feel inside, words can never explain

Day in, day out, my tear stained face
Pressed against the window pane
My eyes search the skies, desperately for rain
Because raindrops will hide my teardrops
And no one will ever know
That I’m crying, crying when I go outside
To the world outside my tears, I refuse to explain

Let it rain, let it rain
I need rain to disguise the tears in my eyes
Oh, let it rain
Oh, yeah, yeah listen
I’m a man and I got my pride
Give me rain or I’m going to stay inside
Let it rain

(Let it (rain) (rain) (rain) rain, rain)
