( Soccer song lyrics )
OF COURSE, IT HAD TO RAIN
Copyright 2000 - MickTerry.com

The weather called for sunshine
throughout this busy day.
But when the downpour started,
I put the hose away.
It rained without relenting
right through the soccer game.
And there's no point in pretending
the barbecue won't be the same.

The weather called for warming,
but temperatures just fell.
The kids were soaked and freezing,
and catching colds as well.
We'd planned to have the families
of all the soccer team
to come join us for a cookout,
cele|brate our victories.

    OF COURSE, IT HAD TO RAIN today:
    didn't I just wash the car?
    OF COURSE, IT HAD TO RAIN today:
    wasn't I going to mow the yard?
    The best laid plans of men & mice
    are foiled by heavenly schemes.
    OF COURSE, IT HAD TO RAIN tonight:
    'cause we'd planned an outdoor scene.

The weather called for clearing,
by now you've guessed the rest.
The rain just kept on coming,
a drizzling rain at best.
But we crammed everybody,
like sixty-eight in all,
all in|side this fun-filled cook-in:
a fine time was had by all.

        And Murphy was an optimist,
        or so the saying goes.
        Whatever might upset your wish
        will be the first to show
        if you're not really willing
        to do whatever it takes
        to have the things you really want.
        The best is what you make.

Instead of being outside,
we filled up every room.
It got real warm and cozy
with not much elbow-room.
The food was oven-broiled.
Nobody could complain.
What with all our fun and laughter,
we sure drowned out all the rain.

    CHORUS
