There's a woman on the outside Looking inside, does she see me No she does not really see me 'Cause she sees her own reflection And I'm trying not to notice That she's hitching up her skirt And while she's straightening her stockings Her hair has gotten wet Do do do do... Oh, this rain, it will continue Through the morning as I'm listening To the bells of the cathedral I am thinking of your voice Do do do do...
