"Rainy Day In June" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
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

    General CommentRay loves the rain, and he loves walking around after a rainstrorm in his garden, imagning he sees fairies and stuff. Weird man.

    He was born in June, so I suppose he went for a walk around his garden on his birthday and wrote this song or something.

    General CommentThis is one of the standout songs for me on Face to Face... It is, IMO different to most other Kinks songs... I must say it sounds great in mono. The rain/thunder sfx go down a treat. :P
