It's Raining Up In Harlem

Harlem is a beautiful place, but it can be like the end of the world. When it rains, it can clear the air or it can seem like heaven is crying. Can you capture that in a song?

 
It's raining up in Harlem
And I'm just trying to make a call
It's raining up in Harlem
And I'm just trying to make a call
But that phone just keeps on ringing
There ain't no response at all

I said I'd call at seven
Now I'm standing in the rain
I said I'd call at seven
Now I'm standing in the rain
If I can't reach my baby
The sun won't never shine again

I'm going to leave this cold, cold city
And I'm going home to stay
I'm going to leave this cold, cold city
And I'm going home to stay
I've just got to tell my baby
My baby don't know that I
Changed my evil ways
