Everybody knows when it rains it pours
Over both my house and yours
The clouds got a silver side of course
I’ll lead you to the water on my deadbeat horse

Get the ball rolling when it’s in your court
Got a second wind right before the storm
A little bit brighter than the darkest dawn
To make a real long story short

Let’s not and we’ll say we did
Gimme’ the doubt of the benefit
It ain’t over ‘til we taste our own medicine
But we can burn that bridge when we come to it

Rainin’ cats and dogs on your parade
To have to hold to let them all eat cake
Apples and oranges keep the doctor away
Devil’s advocate wins the race

Let’s not and we’ll say we did
Gimme’ the doubt of the benefit
It ain’t over ‘til we taste our own medicine
But we can burn that bridge when we come to it

Cut the mustard with the straw that breaks
A camel light when the ship has sailed
Sticks and stones going down in flames
The early bird saves the day
