Caroline, you're angry because you sleep like a spinster and you're twenty-eight
You've been thinking late you couldn't catch a cold
Bend your head double in the goose-down, piling all the pillows high
Heave your fiercest sigh and see if that'll work

And the raincoat that you wore when it rained today
And the raincoat that you wore when it rained today
I think it only made it rain more
I think it only made it rain the more

And if the water's all wicking up your pant-leg, better wear your britches tight
I should teach you right to be so down at heel
Going off half-cocked, not shot full of arrows from the cherubim
Oh, the nerve of them to not draw their bows

And the raincoat that you wore when it rained today
And the raincoat that you wore when it rained today
I think it only made it rain more
I think it only made it rain the more

    General CommentNow, now, children.

    I'm sure we all have our differing opinions over the criteria for Colin's finest. This certainly isn't "Dracula's Daughter," so we'll play it cool here.
