lyrics

Noah got his instructions though the holyland mail
He picked up that hammer started pounding those nails
My roof is leaking I'm lining up pails
I lost a day to the rain

I lost a day to the rain again
Retraced my steps over where i'd been
Searched high and low but to no end
I lost a day to the rain

Ben Franklin air lifted up a big old kite
With a small gold key on a stormy night
I'll strike up a candle when I need a light
I lost a day to the rain

I lost a day to the rain again
Retraced my steps over where i'd been
Searched high and low but to no end
I lost a day to the rain

Gene Kelly turned on his heel so gracefully
Wet and wild drove the ladies all crazy
I got two left feet and I'm a little bit lazy
I lost a day to the rain

I lost a day to the rain again
Retraced my steps over where i'd been
Searched high and low but to no end
I lost a day to the rain

I lost a day to the rain again
Retraced my steps over where i'd been
Searched high and low but to no end
I lost a day to the rain
