lyrics

1. It’s grey when it rains
In the backstreets and lanes
Of Swalwell

Red brick shining wet
As I try to forget
That I’m falling

‘low dull chimney stack
A mood hued black
Is calling

It’s grey when it rains
In the backstreets and lanes
Of Swalwell

When the rain comes down, and you’re workward bound, and you're stalling
It’s easy to be, lost in melancholy, in Swalwell

2. It’s blue when it rains
O’er fences and chains
In Gateshead

Nowt but regret
And a drink and a bet
Getting wasted

Ambition, it fails
And colour, it pales
Bitter tasted

It’s blue when it rains
O’er fences and chains
In Gateshead

The rain’s wet haze, and sad lost days, are hastened
It’s easy to be, lost in melancholy, in Gateshead

M8. I pray that Tuesday morning will end soon
In my heart it’s forever Friday afternoon
Lost in the toon
End this day soon
Please soon

3. It’s black when it pours
On the windows and doors
Of England

The Manchester rain
Sweet lonely pain
Is demanded

Longing by night
And longing by light
Never ended

It’s black when it pours
On the windows and doors
Of England

When thunder crashes, and the downpour lashes, can’t stand it
It’s easy to be, lost in melancholy, in England
