Looking through the window
To see which way the wind blows
It seems as though a hurricane is due today
Sunny on the outside
Stormy on the inside
Stormy weather's always best for making hay

Here come Everlasting
Looks like he's been fasting
With his friends in the den where directors roll
Like a bandarillo
With his cigarillo
Robs the rich, robs the rest, brings it all back home

Please don't get us wrong man
This is just a song man
No matter what we say
This is the season, stormy weather's on the way
This is the season, stormy weather's on the way
You'd better start worrying, witchcraft's here to stay

In blows Snow White
The dwarves are kinda off-white
Division's his decision, so they're out of luck
Associates are reeling
The wall paper is peeling
He doesn't see the paper work has come unstuck

In comes Saville
Had his fill of travel
Had a bite on the flight, just touched down today
Lookin' drawn and haggard
Through the door he staggered
With a sound that he found over Frisco way

Please don't get us wrong man
This is just a song man
No matter what we say
This is the season, stormy weather's on the way
This is the season, stormy weather's on the way
You'd better start worrying, witchcraft's here to stay

    General CommentNot characteristic of Fairport Convention tunes and that's a shame! This blues/rock romp is one of my very favourite songs of all time, aided by Richard Thompson's delicious licks thrown between chorus phrases (the first lick on the second chorus should be regarded as one of the greatest ever!) Plus his soloing and the great lyrics seen above (not to mention the singing and all other band member contributions)... Well, let's just say that I LOVE THIS TUNE!!
