Drip Drop - The Drifters

Drip Drop

The Drifters

(Jerry Leiber - Mike Stoller, ATLANTIC 1187, 1958)

(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
Well, the roof is leaking
And the rain's falling on my head
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
Well, the roof is leaking
And the rain's falling on my head
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
I cried so hard. teardrops on my bed
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
Well, she packed up her clothes
And she moved out on the midnight train
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
Well, she packed up her clothes
And she moved out on the midnight train
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
You know this empty room is driving me insane
(flip, flip, flippety flop)
Well, I'm sitting here drinking
Thinking what I'm gonna do
(Sip, sip, sippety sop)
Well, I'm sitting here drinking
Thinking what I'm gonna do
(Sip, sip, sippety sop)
You know the roof is leaking
And the rain is falling through
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)

Well, I ran into my buddy
He gave me a tip, tip, tip
He said, your woman's gone and left
I said I'm a-hip, hip, hip
I said, just mind your own affairs
And button your lip, lip, lip
I don't need you to tell me
She gave me the slip, slip, slip
Because the roof is leaking
And the rain's falling on my head
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
I cried so hard, teardrops on my bed
(Drip, drip, drippety drop)
Oh-oh (drip, drip) oh-oh (drippety drop)
Oh-oh (drip, drip) oh-oh (drippety drop)
