Standin' On The Corner (Siochána)

I'm standin' on the corner and the rain comes down,
Standin' on the corner, ain't nobody around,
Waitin' for my baby, takin' a bus from uptown.
I'm standin' on the corner and she ain't here yet,
Standin' in the rain, gettin' soaking wet,
Standin' on the corner and the rain keeps pouring down.

Well, I was sittin' at home on a rainy ol' day,
Watchin' TV, passin' time away,
And my baby calls, she wanna come on by.
It's kinda boring, ain't much to do;
If you wanna come by that's up to you.
"Meet me at the bus on the corner at a quarter to five."

I'm standin' on the corner and the rain comes down,
Standin' on the corner, ain't nobody around,
Waitin' for my baby, takin' a bus from uptown.
I'm standin' on the corner and she ain't here yet,
Standin' in the rain, gettin' soaking wet,
Standin' on the corner and the rain keeps pouring down.

Well, I got to the corner at a quarter to five,
And that downtown bus had just arrived,
To my surprise just passed on by.
I thought to myself it musta been the wrong one.
Just wait here and another will come.
Standin' on the corner now, it's a quarter to nine.

I'm standin' on the corner and the rain comes down,
Standin' on the corner, ain't nobody around,
Waitin' for my baby, takin' a bus from uptown.
Well, I'm standin' on the corner and she ain't here yet,
Standin' in the rain, gettin' soaking wet,
Standin' on the corner and the rain keeps pouring down.

Well, I crawled back home about half past ten.
Took off my clothes, I was soaked to the skin.
And the phone rang, it was my baby on the line.
She nagged at me and asked me where I was to.
I was at the bus stop waitin' for you.
"I'm not comin' by now, I've changed my mind."

I'm standin' on the corner and the rain comes down,
Standin' on the corner, ain't nobody around,
Waitin' for my baby, takin' a bus from uptown.
I'm standin' on the corner and she ain't here yet,
Standin' in the rain, gettin' soaking wet,
Standin' on the corner and the rain keeps pouring down.
I'm standin' on the corner and the rain keeps pouring down.
