THE CLOUD BURSTS



(Clark)





Strange flashes in the darkening sky

High above the trees a flock of birds takes flight

Rats running to a hole in the ground

Way off in the distance there's a rumbling sound


Getting close to the hour

When the storm enshrouds us

Won’t be long before the cloud bursts

Down upon the earth

Time’s coming when the cloud bursts

Down upon upon the earth


Ill wind’s whipping up a typhoon

Thunder clouds massing in the gathering gloom

All heading for a watery grave

Storm surge rising in a tidal wave


Fools still counting their coins and notes

Better get started on building that boat

All that gold’s getting swept away

People say it’s gonna rain for 40 days


Getting close to the hour

When the storm enshrouds us

Won’t be long before the cloud bursts

Down upon the earth

Time’s coming when the cloud bursts

Down upon upon the earth


Storm rising on the horizon

Storm rising on the horizon


Getting close to the hour

When the storm enshrouds us

Won’t be long before the cloud bursts

Down upon the earth

Time’s coming when the cloud bursts

Down upon upon the earth
