Andalucía Flood

Andalucía Flood

 
with thanks to Larry Davis

 
It’s flooding down in Andalucía
all the telephone lines are down
the orange warnings have been posted
people fear they’re gonna drown

Last year was the worst year
it was the first year
for as far back as records go
rain, rain, rain and in the mountains snow

It’s flooding down in Andalucía
all the telephone lines are down
the orange warnings have been posted
people fear they’re gonna drown

Three months of non-stop downpour
mopping the leaks flooding the floor
we started to feel it would never end
and now it’s started again

It’s flooding down in Andalucía
all the telephone lines are down
the orange warnings have been posted
people fear they’re gonna drown

The streets are awash with water
we fear for sons and daughter
we fear for the aged more
as the water floods through the door

It’s flooding down in Andalucía
all the telephone lines are down
the orange warnings have been posted
people fear they’re gonna drown

Another year like the last one
would not be much like fun
our houses aren’t built for rain
flat roofs cannot stand the strain

It’s flooding down in Andalucía
all the telephone lines are down
the orange warnings have been posted
people fear they’re gonna drown
