lyrics

Hard on the heels of the flood comes the rain
Just when you got the wheels out of the rut again
Take a tip from Sisyphus, he knows that life’s in vain
Hard on the heels of the flood comes the rain
When I was just a young boy my papa told me son
Time is the enemy one day your race is run
When you get to my age think of this song i sung
But don’t be looking back on all the stupid things you’ve done
When I was just a young man I saw things on TV
I did not think were possible in 1983
People dying of hunger we could have fed easily
You think the sea wall’s safe because you have not seen the sea
Hard on the heels of the flood comes the rain
Just when you got your head out of the sand again
Don’t stand there with Tantalus no gravy on the train
Hard on the heels of the flood comes the rain
Buy a cheap umbrella and it will not last the day
Damn the yellow river and wash lots of things away
Go out enjoy the sunshine in the merry month of may
But I just spoke to Noah and you know what’s on the way
Hard on the heels of the flood comes the rain
Just when you got your name out of the mud again
Don’t dine with Phinaeus find your own ball your own chain
Hard on the heels of the flood comes the rain
Creepy crawly weird things slither cross the ocean floor
Got no long term memory but they’ve all been here before
No use trying to stop them, no recourse to the law
All waiting for the day when the heavens start to pour
