*** My Tears Come Falling Down Like Rain ***

Desmond is a big man, he is six foot one
He brought home an organ, just to have some fun
Pressure got too much, stardom take it's toll
Woh, his life is just one big black hole

Woh, Desmond you should've held your head up high
Not be dispirited when your feeling gets you down
As I sat there watching Desmond acting like a clown
My tears come falling down like rain
My tears come falling down like rain

Alton was a hard man yes we all agree
Him sacrifice life for his family
Policeman come, put him in a jail
You should've heard old Alton wail

Oh Alton, you should've held your head up high
Not be dispirited when your feeling gets you down
Now they come and tell me he's lying dead in a cell
My tears come falling down like rain
My tears come falling down like rain

Come from Jamaica, I was eight years old
I didn't want, I had to do what I was told
Stepmother brought me up, she taught me right from wrong
Every night, she used to sing this little song

Woh, children you've got to hold your head up high
Not be dispirited when your feeling gets you down
When I think about my family the joy just makes me cry
My tears come falling down like rain
My tears come falling down like rain
My tears come falling down like rain, rain, rain yeah
My tears come falling down like rain
My tears come falling down like rain
My tears come falling down like rain
My tears come falling down like rain, rain, rain yeah
My tears come falling down like rain
