Who'll stop the rain?????

Long as I remember, the rain been comin' down. Clouds of mystery pourin' confusion on the ground. Good men through the ages tryin' to find the sun. And I wonder (still I wonder) who'll stop the rain?

There's talk on the street; it sounds so familiar. Great expectations, everybody's watching you...

..... People you meet, they all seem to know you; Even your old friends treat you like you're something new. Johnny come lately, the new kid in town. Everybody loves you, so don't let them down. There's talk on the street, it's there to Remind you, that it doesn't really matter which side you're on. You're walking away and they're talking behind you. They will never forget you 'til somebody new comes along.

Random fact:

In the '70s when I was in grade school, I was pretty good at math. It wasn't until I got in to high school and began taking the advanced courses that I started to fail miserably.
