IT NEVER RAINS

(Mark Knopfler)

I hear the Seven Deadly Sins

And the Terrible Twins come to call on you

The bigger they are babe

The harder they fall on you

And you you're always the same you persevere

On the same old pleasure ground

Oh and it never rains around here

It just comes pouring down

You had no more volunteers

So you got profiteers for to help you out

With friends like that babe

Good friends you had to do without

And now they've taken the chains and the gears

From off your merry-go-round

Oh and it never rains around here

It just comes pouring down

And your new Romeo

Was just a gigolo when he let you down

See the faster they are babe

The faster they get out of town

Leaving make up stains and the tears of a clown

Yes and it never rains around here

It just comes pouring down

Oh you were just a roller coaster memory

I don't know why I was even passing through

I saw you making a date with Destiny

When he came around here asking after you

In the shadow of the Wheel Of Fortune

You're busy trying to clear your name

You say 'I may be guilty yeah that may be true

But I'd be lying if I said I was to blame

See we could have been major contenders

We never got no money no breaks'

You've got a list of all the major offenders

You got a list of all their major mistakes

And he's just standing in the shadows

Yes and you smile that come-on smile

Oh I can still hear you say as clear as the day

'I'd like to make it worth your while'

Ah but it's a sad reminder

When your organ grinder has to come to you for rent

And all you've got to give him

Is the use of your side-show tent

Yes and that's all that remains of the years

Spent doing the rounds

And it never rains around here

Well it just comes pouring down

Now you know what they say about beggars

You can't complain about the rules'

You know what they say about beggars

You know who's the first to blame his tools

You never gave a damn about who you pick up

And leave laying bleeding on the ground

You screw people over on the way up

Because you thought that you were never coming down

And he takes you out in Vaudeville Valley

With his hand up smothering your screams

And he screws you down in Tin Pan Alley

In the city of a billion dreams
