lyrics

I’m gonna build myself a boat
and take a trip to distant lands
I’ll get low in Nova Scotia
and get high in Amsterdam

And I’ll float away from everything that’s here
I’ll just pack my bags, the band, and all the beer.

We’ll be the pirates of the freeway
setting sail for love and fame
floating high above the rooftops.
So please God don’t stop the rain.

’cause I need me some respite from my routine
so set sail for someplace I have never seen.

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.
All this muddy water’s getting to my brain.
As the flood comes in I’m happy all the same, same, same,
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

My foundation’s under water
so I’ll build a submarine
Ringo Starr could be her captain
she’d be powered by caffeine

Just like me and all the songs I sing today
So say goodbye and watch my troubles float away.

(Chorus)

I wish the sun would go away,
I wish the sun would go away,
I wish the sun would go away,
don’t make me work today.

(Chorus)

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.
All this goddamn water’s getting to my brain.
As the flood comes in I’m happy all the same, same, same,
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

about

Matthew Ebel Boston, Massachusetts

I call myself a piano rocker, but I’m really just kind of a goofball. I’ve been playing the piano since age 5, discovered electronic music at 12, and made this stuff my career in '99. Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
