Ominous Clouds in Hemet

Ominous Clouds in Hemet

When the storm clouds gather
Over Mann Lane
Thereís a darn good possibility
Itís gonna rain.

Even though ominous
Thereís beauty to behold
In those puffy cloud formations
So gray and cold.

You can almost touch them
Lying so close to our thoroughfare
Barely above our rooftops
Gloomy everywhere

I used to love the rain and mud
Back when I was a little shaver
Stomping through the puddles of water
Even though my Momís disfavor.

So Iíll stay in my home
Where itís warm and dry
Grab a good book
With Hot coffee close by

Wait for tomorrow
Itíll be a better time
Those clouds will disappear
And the sun again will shine.
