Why Donít It Rain?

(Bob Nolan)

 

Recite with Wayne Austin

 

I donít ask very much of life. Iím satisfied it seems

To work and slave each long day thru

And spend each night in dreams.

Thereís one thing I canít understand

And it donít seem quite fair

For days the plains have needed rain

Is something wrong up there?

 

Blaziní sunshine every day, open ranges seem to say

Soon weíll wither and decay our life away

Why donít it rain?

See that little creature hurry to the shade.

He donít know. I see him there,

Tiny feet all blistered, but he donít seem afraid.

Guess I better tell him to beware

Thereís a vulture in the sky, and he knows the reason why

Everything will surely die, and so will I.

 

(Read by Wayne Austin.)
