Down Memory Lane; CAN YOU STAND THE RAIN???

So its a Fabulous Friday (albeit wet).

How do you do? I am doing great, just chilling because of the rain. I have also been strolling down memory lane; with pictures and songs. #Soliloquy Oh, for the days of Steve Urkel glasses again and ... Never mind, some other time.

Anyway, I came across my personal favourite of all the rainy day songs; Can you stand the rain? It was originally recorded by New Edition in 1988 for their 5th studio album, Heartbreak. Later, an almost equally popular cover was done by Boyz II men for their 'Evolution' album in 1997.

On a perfect day
I know that I can count on you
When that's not possible
Tell me can you weather the storm
Cause I need somebody who will stand by me
Through the good times and bad times
She will always, always be right there

[Chorus:]
Sunny days, everybody loves them
Tell me
Can you stand the rain
Storms will come
This we know for sure (this we know for sure)
Can you stand the rain

Love unconditional
I'm not asking this of you
Girl to make it last
I'll do whatever needs to be done
Cause I need somebody who will stand by me
When it's tough she won't run
She will always, always be right there for me

[Chorus:]
Sunny days, everybody loves them
Tell me
Can you stand the rain (can you stand it? whoa whoa)
Storms will come
This we know for sure (this we know for sure) (tell me can you stand it)
Can you stand the rain (can you stand the rain)

Can you stand the rain (can you stand the rain)
No pressure, no pressure from me baby (can you stand the rain)
Cause I want you (can you stand the rain)
And I need you
And I love you girl (tell me baby) (can u stand the rain)
Will you be there for me (come on girl lets go get wet)

Can you stand the rain (can you stand, this we know for sure)
Can you stand the rain (will you be there, this we know for sure)
Can you stand the rain (storms will come, this we know for sure)
Can you stand the rain (rain rain rain)
Can you stand the rain (it's kinda cold but I know I know I'll be right there yeah)
Can you stand the rain (yeah)


Cheers!!!!!
