A song about a typical British Summer

Lyrics

I got holes in my rain coat, my umbrella is inside out
I got rain pouring on me like from out a teapot spout
My shoes are full of water and I squelch as I go by
I'm tired of all this water from the sky.

I got drips all around me and one's going down my neck
I can feel its coldness as it's running down my back
My shirt is soaking wet and my pants are far from dry
I'm tired of all this water from the sky

Oh my hair is standing upright as the lightning flashes round
And the thunder crashes make me jump right off the ground
I have to wear this helmet 'cause the hail's like meteorites
Oh please somebody help me outta my plight

I'm tired, I'm tired. I'm tired of trying to find some place that's dry
I'm tired, Yes I'm tired, I'm cold and soaking wet I wanna cry

I am sick o' sitting here it feels like it's been hours
I was walking by the river in what I thought was a shower
The river burst its banks I had to climb into this tree
I'm tired of all this water falling on me

The river is still rising, it's now up to my chin
At least with all this water my pants will be quite clean
So I won't be embarrassed when they find me when I'm dead
'Cos now the water's finally over my head

I had holes in my rain coat my umbrella was inside out
I had rain pouring on me like from out a teapot spout
My shoes were full of water and I squelched as I went by [sigh]
I died of all this water from the sky
