"Rain Dance" as written by and Kurt Winter Burton Cummings....
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?

Fifi said to Don the baker
"Can ya show me how to bake another bun, Don?"
And I'm still sittin' with my next-door neighbor, saying
"Where'd ya get the gun, John?"

Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?

Christopher was asking the astronomer
"Can your telescope tell me where the sun's gone?"
And I'm still sittin' with my next-door neighbor, saying
"Where'd ya get the gun, John?"

Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?

Changin' just a few things
Laughin' while the bell rings on the door
Changin' just a few things
Shootin' when the bird sings

Changin' just a few things
Laughin' while the bell rings on the door
Changin' just a few things
Shootin' when the bird sings

Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?

Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?
Don't ya want to rain dance with me?

    General CommentI think this song has to do with a neighbor who plans to commit a sucide or homicide. The other parts of it about the baker and the astronomer are stuff that is happening in other people's lives to serve as a comparison. Whatever it means, it is such a fantastic song!!

    General CommentTo me this song is about a changing world. One that is getting much more dark and scary. I think Fifi and Don are having an afair,John is contemplating suicide or homicide (as above) christopher turns to the astronamer for guidence. He wants to know where the "sun" has gone meaning he wants to know when the world went sour and how to get it back.

    General CommentI probably read into this song but I always liked it... I figured Fifi was an insignificant character but he was learning a useful craft; baking buns, while John sat around talking about guns. Sitting around talking about guns could be considered a useless pursuit, and some may consider guns potentially harmful. Christopher (Columbus) asked the astronomer if he could see beyond the visible sea to where the sun has gone; to what was he about to sail into? Two people, Fifi and Christopher, doing/learning something useful, both in a big way and a small way, while John the rain dancer, is doing something useless.
