Rain, rain, go away

The Covington News - - Sports - BRYAN FAZIO

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.

Don’t you know there is football to play? /

We want to go to Sharp to watch our stars play /

Come again some other day.

Rain, rain, go away, let us see a daz­zling ath­letic dis­play /

I’ve never seen an East­side-New­ton ri­valry /

But I’ve heard the Rams and Ea­gles show­down is one to see /

It’s even been ranked a top 10 by the AJC /

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.

Games in the rain and the slop may be en­ter­tain­ing /

But how can Ki­mani make his throws if it’s rain­ing? /

It’s An­to­nious Sims’ speed you’ll be drain­ing /

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.

It’s the tal­ent, not the weather we’re com­ing to see /

We’ve been wait­ing for this for what seems like an eter­nity /

It’s more than a game, it’s a sense of community /

Rain, rain, go away come again some other day.

For the week, a hur­ri­cane has brought you here /

But you’ve come at a time held so dear /

Let us sit in the stands with skies that are clear /

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.

Football is here in just a day, let us have it our own way /

Fazio, 2B
