Feel the Rain

November 11, 1986

Feel the rain
drop down upon you.
Don't think.
Have fun,
dear child, have fun!
Walk the road of life

The sweet rain,
It's pouring down,
it tastes so good.
Don't run through it.
Walk slowly and feel it.
Walk the road of life.

Smile child.
Do your dance.
It's past your bedtime.
Live it up.
Give yourself the chance to be a child.
Don't rush these precious years.
Walk the road of life.

Sing your song sweet child.
You have something to say.
Say it.
Speak loudly
and share your ideas with the world.
Let them know you feel.
Don't be afraid,
Walk the road of life.

Smile through the rain, child.
This is your life.
Always remember that, little one.
Experience life.
Learn from it.
Walk the road of life.

Rejoice, child.
See the rainbow in the sky?
You're alive, child.
Live it, child.
Live it.
Walk the road of life.
