So here’s what I realised a few days ago.
I was listening to random music and the song Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head by BJ Thomas came on. I was absentmindedly humming along to the lyrics when this caught my attention:
So I just did me some talkin’ to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done
Sleepin’ on the job
Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallin’
But a bit after, he sings:
Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Cryin’s not for me
‘Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothin’s worryin’ me
How is telling the Sun that you don’t like the way he’s got things done NOT complaining? In fact, one presumes that he got the rain to stop BECAUSE he complained to the Sun! I mean, come on!
I still like the song, don’t worry.
