What Have They Done to the Rain - Malvina Reynolds/The Searchers/The Seekers/Joan Baez/Marianne Faithfull/Esther and Abi Ofarim

  
  
  
What Have They Done to the Rain
Just a little rain falling all around 
The grass lifts its head to the heavenly sound 
Just a little rain, just a little rain 
What have they done to the rain 

Just a little boy standing in the rain 
The gentle rain that falls for years 
And the grass is gone, the boy disappears 
And rain keeps falling like helpless tears 
And what have they done to the rain 

Just a little breeze out of the sky 
The leaves nod their head as the breeze blows by 
Just a little breeze with some smoke in its eye 
What have they done to the rain 

Just a little boy standing in the rain 
The gentle rain that falls for years 
And the grass is gone, the boy disappears 
And rain keeps falling like helpless tears 
And what have they done to the rain 
What have they done to the rain
