Rainy Day in June

Ray Davies, released on Face to Face, © Davray/Carlin Music Corp. 1966

.

A misty shadow spread its wings

And covered all the ground

And even though the sun was out

The rain came pouring down

.

And all the light had disappeared

And faded in the gloom

There was no hope, no reasoning

This rainy day in June

.

The eagle spread its mighty wings

And pounced upon its pray

And all the skies, so brilliant blue

Turned suddenly to grey

.

The cherished things are perishing

And buried in their tomb

There is no hope, no reasoning

This rainy day in June

.

And everybody felt the rain

Everybody felt the rain

Everybody felt the rain

Everybody felt the rain

.

The demon stretched its crinkled hand

And snatched a butterfly

The elves and gnomes were hunched in fear

Too terrified to cry

.

The reckoning was beckoning

They're living to their doom

There was no hope, no reasoning

This rainy day in June

.

And everybody felt the rain

Everybody felt the rain

Everybody felt the rain

Everybody felt the rain

.
