Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

I always loved this song, Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head. But it was never clear to me where this song came from. I didn’t do any research, of course. Until today. Somehow this song is connected to Singing in the Rain, but it is completely unrelated to this film. It is used in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, a 1969 film. Written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach. Yes. A famous song. Got an Oscar for Best Original Song.

It is that good.

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
Raindrops are falling on my head
And just like the guy whose feet
Are too big for his bed
Nothing seems to fit
Those raindrops
Are falling on my head
They keep falling.

So I just did me some
Talking to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way
He got things done
Sleeping on the job
Those raindrops
Are falling on my head
They keep fallin’

But there’s one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me
Won’t defeat me, it won’t be long
Till happiness
Steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes
Will soon be turning red
Crying’s not for me ’cause,
I’m never gonna stop the rain
By complaining,
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me

It won’t be long
Till happiness
Steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes
Will soon be turning red
Crying’s not for me cause,
I’m never gonna stop the rain
By complaining,
Because I’m free, ’cause nothing’s worrying me
