What's the use in trying
She'll never compromise
She's putting out the fire
Heart's as cold as ice
I know she's out there running
With another man
That woman never learns
She'll never understand

I can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain from falling down

She's got me in a trance
A mojo's in the work
A pitted little soul
I ain't nothin' but a jerk
I fell for her compassion
It hit me like a bomb
And now I'm counting pennies
I ain't nothin' but a bum

But I can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain from falling down
Can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain from falling down
Never stop the rain

So here I sit up crying
Ain't nothin' but the blues
Rememberin' sweet little nothings
She made me so amused

I can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain from falling down
I can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain from falling down
Can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain

Dr. John meets ZZ Top during an annoying David Byrne-wannabe phase. 






Gack. 
I thought maybe this was Dr. John.  But it's not quite good enough.
Trying to process that I first heard these guys 47 years ago.
Came here to comment "Hey, I've never heard this ZZ Top song before"
Now thats PhonKayyy
Hah Colossal Head.  HOw many songs have you heard of that album?
From what I read about sales back then, America missed the boat on this entire record ... it's outstanding! Highly musical and it rocks. Thanks, Bill!
Nice track by the LL boyz, starts off real strong (like a 9!) though I'm settling on an 8 for this groviness (and flute!!) ….Long Live RP!!

I would never have guessed Los Lobos; excellent.

Funky! I like it! :nodhead:
Sounds more like Sniff n' the Tears (Hey Saint Peter)
"Just put on a pair of cheap sunglasses...oh yeah!" Give the Lobos credit for one thing...they're never afraid to sound different. Even when that "different" ain't so good.
