On a Rainy Night


//On a rainy night I will arrive chilly and cold//

//If your mama senses something tell her it is the dog.//

//Wake me up and send me home when the speckled rooster crows//

//And Monday morning when you meet me ask me for a little bread//

//If your brothers should get angry please just look at them with laughter//

//When the priest calls you just tell him the same thing//

//And when the nine months are up go hide deep in the forest.//

//I will be loving you from here intensely.//
