Better get the children inside
Better close the windows tight
They’re saying on the radio
There’s gonna be a thunderstorm tonight

It’s been too dry too long now
The grass has all turned brown
See that cumulonimbus forming
Gonna wash some life into this town

You can almost hear the garden saying ‘Thank you’
You can almost feel relief beneath the ground
Hear the rock’n'roll men hummin’
That the thunderstorm is comin’
I been so dry, I wish that I could drown
Wish that I could drown

Everybody’s made of water
Everybody smells the rain
Listen for the sound of thunder
Make us feel like animals again

Better than the sweetest music
Better than a mandolin
Better get the big umbrella
Look at all the goosebumps on my skin

You can almost see the flowers doing warmups
You can almost see the trees stretch out their limbs
Doesn’t matter what you’re doin’
You know the storm is brewin’
You can feel it in the whistle of the wind
Whistle of the wind

You say you wanna go outside
Say you wanna take a ride
Well be advised the skies are looking gray
You don’t wanna be exposed
When this kind of weather shows
But I might just go dancing on the lawn today

Are you ready for the rain now?
Are you ready for the rain now?

Better get the children inside
Better close the windows tight
They’re saying on the radio
They’re gonna wash the gullies out tonight
There’s gonna be a storm

And you can almost hear the garden saying ‘Thank you’
You can almost feel relief beneath the ground
Doesn’t matter what you’re doin’
You know the storm is brewin’
I been so dry, I wish that I could drown

So bring it down now
