STANDIN' IN THE RAIN

Lyrics:Richard H. Jones
Music:Richard H. Jones & Ralph Hugo

PART 1
Don't take your love, mama
Don't you get on board that train
Don't leave me, mama
Don't you leave me with this pain
Don't take away my sunshine
And leave me standin' in the rain
Standin'in the rain

Now, I ain't perfect, baby
Ain't no 'Sir Galahad'
I done mess up a few times, woman
And I know I made ya mad
But I loves ya, darlin'
Never meant to see you sad

Don't give up on me now, baby
Don't take your sweet love away
I'm sorry if I played the fool
And my pride, my pride got in the way
Please give me one more chance
Won't you turn around and stay

PART 2
She took her bags and left me
She took that late night train
Now I wander through the lonely streets at night
Like a man gone plumb insane
She was my sunshine
Now I'm standin'in the rain
Standin' in the rain

PART 3
Now, if you ever love a woman
Don't you ever cause her pain
You got to protect her and respect her, don't neglect her
Or all your love's in vain
'Coz she'll walk away with that sunshine
And leave ya standin'
Leave ya standin'
Leave ya standin'
Leave ya standin' in the rain
