"It's Raining Again" as written by Richard Davies and Roger Hodgson....
It's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end
Oh no, it's raining again
And you know it's hard to pretend
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend
Oh no, it's raining again
Oh, will my heart ever mend

You're old enough some people say
To read the signs and walk away
It's only time that heals the pain
And makes the sun come out again

It's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend

La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Come on, you little fighter
No need to get up-tighter
Come on, you little fighter
And get back up again

It's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend, oh

La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Come on, you little fighter
No need to get up-tighter
Come on, you little fighter
And get back up again
Oh, get back up again
Oh, fill your heart again

    General CommentI like the lyric about the Little Fighter, getting back up again. All you can really do sometimes, is get back to your feet and go on, or try again.

    General CommentI love the way this song mixes an inherently unhappy subject with such a playful timbre. On one hand we have sombre lyrics like:

    - "It's raining again"
    - "My love's at an end"
    - "I'm losing a friend"
    - "It's only time that heals the pain"

    But this is contrasted with a childlike sense of naivity:

    - The upbeat tempo
    - The playful saxophone and xylophone throughout
    - Childlike lyrics, like "And makes the sun come out again" and "C'mon, you little fighter"
    - The teasing melody at the end of the accordian's solo
    - The background vocals at the end, reciting the nursery rhyme "It's raining, It's pouring, The old man's snoring..."

    This song reminds me of my placement with Year 1s (age 5-6) during my teacher training.
