HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE RAIN?


3A heard this song in several versions and they much preferred the original by Creedence Clearwater Revival . And here, they sing it. We had a bit of a class debate because the singer has a strong American accent and we had to agree on one way to pronounce words like "water", "ever" and "want to / wanna". The final result falls to the English-from-England side.



Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm,
I know
It's been comin for some time.

When it's over, so they say,
It'll rain a sunny day,
I know
Shinin down like water.

[Chorus]
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin down on a sunny day

Yesterday, and days before,
Sun is cold and rain is hard,
I know
Been that way for all my time.

'Til forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow,
I know
It can't stop, I wonder.

Chorus

Yeah!
