LyricsEdit

Switched on the radio this morning
And heard about the local savings and loan
How they went under
Took with them everything I own
That's alright
It doesn't make me nervous
But I can see the clouds gathering in the distance

And every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Yeah every time it rains, I'm a rich man
Yeah every time it rains, I'm indescribably wealthy
Yeah every time it rains, gold coins spill from the heavens straight into my hands
Many have said the devil was coming
I looked down at the sidewalk through the window
Three inches of water running

I looked up at the clouds and everything looked great
The Financial News Network talked about the prime lending rate
That's alright
I'm safe and warm
Just over there you know, near South Ontario
I can see the signals of a tropical storm

And every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Yeah every time it rains, I'm a rich man
Yeah every time it rains, I'm indescribably wealthy
Every time it rains, black checks fall from the heavens straight into my hands
Many have said that the devil was coming
I looked down at the sidewalk through the window 
Three inches of water running
