George Benson - Let It Rain Lyrics




I can be so selfish, sad and moody
I can hear my mama talking to me
She said, 'Girl, you need to change your attitude'
I come home tired and I'm rude to you

And I've got a little problem with 'I'm sorry'
I say go to hell and in a hurry
And if that hurts, I get a little mad at you
The truth we know I'm a little jealous too

Well, if tears like rain have magic powers
Here they come again, them midnight showers

Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
When I pray tonight, gonna say how much I want her
Start it again
[Incomprehensible]
And take it way back when

Do you remember those sweet talks early morning?
Looking and I turn into the dawning
If this works I'll thank the Lord with gratitude
I tell you I'd do all I got to do

But if tears like rain have magic powers
Here they come again, them midnight showers

Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
Gonna pray tonight, gonna say how much I want her
Start it again, baby baby ooh I wanna start again
Take it way back when, well, well, yeah, yeah, come on

Let it rain, water wait I'm walkin'
Wash me up and wash me down
Gonna be good for me, oh let it rain
No more turning, no more tossing
Just like Christmas in the morning for you and me

Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
When I pray tonight, gonna say how much I want her
Start it again
Take it way back when

Let it rain, tell water to wait I'm walkin'
Wash me up and wash me down, be good for me
Let it rain, no more turning and tossing
Just like Christmas in the morning for you and me

Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
When I pray tonight

  53. Dica Jr.

    hoje tudo é igual e sem criatividade peculiar aos grandes artistas que estão morrendo e perderam espaço na mídia; portanto o que vemos hoje é Imagens e clichés chaníssimos.
    As cantoras todas com os cabelo pranchados,figurinos iguais e a musica é o que menos conta. Lamentavelmente eu sou saudosista ....Co a morte do Michael o Pop suicidou-se literalmente. Dica Guimarães Jr,Salvador,Bahia-Brasil.- Sim, não existe mais musicas boas?Não é isso,sabemos que não...A espetacularização da chatisse.

  54. Carmelita Mitchell

    No more turning, no more tossing
    Just like Christmas in the morning for you and me
    Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
    When I pray tonight, gonna say how much I want to
    Start it again Take it way back when
    Let it rain, it's water to wade and walk in
    Wash me up and wash me down, be good for me
    Let it rain, no more turning and tossing
    Just like Christmas in the morning for you and me
    Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
    When I pray tonight (Fade)

  55. Carmelita Mitchell

    But if tears like rain have magic powers
    Oops Here they come again, them midnight showers
    Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
    Gonna pray tonight, gonna say how much I want to
    Start it again, baby baby ooh I wanna start again
    Take it way back when, well, well, yeah, yeah, come on
    Let it rain, water to wade and walk in
    Wash me up and wash me down
    Gonna be good for me,
    oh let it rain

  56. Carmelita Mitchell

    Let it rain tonight, purify like holy water
    When I pray tonight, gonna say how much I want to
    Start it again hoochie coochie girl
    And take it way back when

    Do you remember those sweet talks early morning?
    Hugging and a talking' till the dawning
    If this works I'll thank the Lord with gratitude
    I tell you I'd do all I got to do

  57. Carmelita Mitchell

    I can be so selfish, sad and moody
    I can hear my mama talking to me
    She said, 'Girl, you need to change your attitude'
    I come home tired and I'm rude to you

    And I've got a little problem with 'I'm sorry'
    I say go to hell and in a hurry
    And if that hurts, I get a little mad at you
    The truth be known I'm a little jealous too
    Well, if tears like rain have magic powers
    Oops, Here they come again, them midnight showers
