Funny How the Rain Gets In

We bought a house in the old part of town
Leaked every time it rained
So we caulked the cracks around the windows
Replaced the shingles and drain
Tarred the roof, did the waterproofing
Subterranean
Got someone to put up siding
It's funny still the rain gets in

Went to a family reunion
Talk about quality time
The ghosts of the ancestors
They were walking in their prime
Well the young folk were toking, the old folk were joking
As we watched the sun roll in With a joyful heart, it was a brand new start
But it's funny how the rain gets in

You can walk the straight and narrow
Never throw your passions to the wind
Somewhere, sometime, you'll be feeling just fine
Then the rain gets in
Ain't it funny how the rain gets in

Now every once in a blue moon I get my ticket to cry
Sometimes I think I'm a lucky man
Sometimes I know it's a lie
Yes and every time I get that way I know I just can't win
For weeks in a daze, I'm lost in a maze
Wonderin' how the rain gets in
Ain't it funny how the rain gets in

Now I never walked the straight and narrow
I sailed my passions with the wind
But somewhere, sometime I'll be feeling just fine
Then the rain gets in
Ain't it funny how the rain gets in
