Knight, Gladys - I Wish It Would Rain Lyrics




Oooh, sunshine, blue skies
Please go away
My love has found another
And gone away

With him went my future
My life is filled with gloom
So day after day
I stay locked up in my room

I know to you
It might sound strange
But I wish it would rain
(How I wish that it would rain)
Let it rain, rain, rain, rain

So badly, so badly
I want to go outside
(Such a lovely day)
But I can't stop these tears
From fallin' from my eyes

Listen, I gotta cry
'Cause cryin' eases the pain
Oh, yes it does
Oh, yes it does
Oh, yes it does

People, this hurt I feel inside
Words could never explain
I wish it would rain
(Oh, how I wish that it would rain)
Let it rain, rain, rain, rain
(Oh, how I wish that it would rain)
Let it rain, rain, rain, rain
Ohhhh, and rain, rain
Let it rain

Day in, day out
My tear stained face
Pressed against the window pane
My eyes search the skies
Desperately for rain
'Cause raindrops will hide my teardrops
And no one will ever know
That I'm cryin', cryin', cryin'
When I go outside

To the world outside
My tears, I refuse to explain
I wish it would rain.
(Oh how I wish that it would rain)
Let it rain, let it rain.

Ohhhh

I'm a girl and I got my pride
Till it rains, I'm gonna stay inside
Let it rain, let it rain
I wanna say it one more time

I'm a girl and I got my pride
Till it rains, I'm gonna stay inside
Let it rain, let it rain

Ohh ohh ohhh, let it rain, let it rain

    Glady's always been my favorite still today

  2. Danny Arias

    Ooh-ooh-ooh, hah
    Sunshine, blue skies
    Please go away
    My love has found another
    And gone away

    With him went my future
    My life is filled with gloom
    So day after day
    I stay locked up in my room

    I know to you
    It might sound strange
    But I wish it would rain
    (How I wish that it would rain)
    Let it rain, rain, rain, rain

    So badly, so badly
    I want to go outside
    (Such a lovely day)
    But I can't stop these tears
    From fallin' from my eyes

    Listen, I gotta cry
    'Cause cryin' eases the pain
    Oh, yes it does
    (Oh, yes it does)
    (Oh, yes it does)

    GLADYS KNIGHT 💖 The Queen of soul !

    Jan Möllersen

  4. John Miller

    Motown magic

  5. male3339

    Oh how I wish it would rain let it rain God Bless Gladys I love the Temptations to why shoot I just love good music

  6. tony teo

    Johnny Adams version is the best hands down.

  7. Frieda Sinay

    never mind i like both versions and i enjoy it

  8. jessica

    nah i loveee gladys night but nobody n i mean nobody can sing this better then david ruffin

    monica bella

    Both almost equal. Glady's is much deeper and soulful.

  9. Marshala Stovall

    This version is good, but, it's a song that needs to be sung by a man.

  10. Modelt5000

    I don't know, maybe I'm being a lil' prejudice but this song belongs to David Ruffin. His anguish overrides her soul. The guy that wrote this song wife was cheating on him and he committed suicide, a man's voice just seemed more believable. Gladys sung it but David stepped on it!! Beautiful song!!!

    J Denese

    Modelt5000 I love both versions. I understand your sentiments too. Ooo but Gladys sound so GOOD on this. When there are versions of songs that I like, they each become a different song to me and I don't compare in that case.

  11. K Moore

    RIP William Guest! We recently lost him in December!

  12. kelamo

    I don't know. But this version seems so much more soulful!

  13. Marc Noack

    Wonderful.... love the strings.

  14. Syd Hawdon

    you just believe every word she says x

  15. Karl von Bruh

    love it

  16. Sam VanMusic

    1:25 best part

  17. JoeyJoelBand

    I LOVE the Temptations... David Ruffin, geez, how do you say perfect... This version by Gladys Knight is out of the park, out of this world... off the charts! Goes to show, great artistry is timeless.

    monica bella

    EXACTLY

  18. SoulSir

    I like this rendition.

  19. oofooh

    @TonygMus2
    AGREED.

  20. Jamila Sylvester

    its raining outside ... perfect time to sing this song

  21. gonkerooney

    this version has got to be sex orientated: ie: males liker this version best.
    and the temptations: females like best! am i right?

    monica bella

    Wrong! I prefer Gladys, although David did it great.

  22. God hand Mishima

    Man i really love all the covers of this song, but The Temptations version is the best. This song was made for David's voice.

  23. Angelo.C.

    This woman is better than aretha franklin seriously !

    monica bella

    You're a highly musical person 🌻 Gladys Knight is the Queen of soul and not screaming Mrs. Franklin!

  24. B1 3

    Well pls don't hate me but the original version by Temptations is way better in my opinion

  25. Supa Kent

    @epredbone32 AMENNNNNNNN! Don't get me wrong, I love the The Tempts version but this version is off the chain!

  26. TheAithWONDER

    This track is so funky its make your face Ugly from listening PLEASURE!

  27. epredbone32

    this version over the Temptations any day!

  28. David Harewood

    I didn't even know they'd recorded a bersion of this till a few days ago! I actually like it better than the Temps' version. (I know, I know: BLASPHEMY!!)

  29. frankie hunter

    Interesting fact for those who don't know. I checked the Billboard charts, and they say, this record was issued in 1968, seven month after the Temptations original. The Temts reached Nr. 4 and Gladys only Nr. 41. I think it was released too soon, after the original's success.
    Both versions are great.

  30. blanka

    honestly I like this version so much better.
