​When It Rains It Snows

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the compilation album Miscellaneous T (1991) and on the compilation album Then: The Earlier Years (1997).

There's a knock at the door that I adore
There's a face at the window, a smiling yellow face
There's a knock at the door
And if I were at home they'd find me there

There's a note on the door that I would see
And the furniture's barely been moved from where it was
There's a note on the door
And the note would say when it rains it snows

When it rains it snows, I wonder why
And now I know that when it rains it snows

There's a nut with a shotgun bang bang bang
There's a doctor, a waitress, a fireman with a hat
There's a nut with a gun
There's enough so they'll never know which one

When it rains it snows, I wonder why
And now I know that when it rains it snows
