About the song
I wrote the lyric in Coventry 1970 when I was 19 and Pete Waterman (whom I was working with at the GEC long before he was famous) put some acoustic music to it. I don't have a copy of Pete's early version but put my own music to it in and made this home recording in Middlesbrough 1980. A different mix appeared on my Gnome label album Songs from the Coventry Underground in 2007. One of the original inspirations for the lyric was hearing Epitaph by King Crimson. It was a starting point at lest!
Lyrics
A LOTTA RAIN IS FALLIN’ - by Trev Teasdel 1970

A lotta rain is fallin’, but the earth has moved aside
There’s a lotta bullets flying but the victim’s found somewhere to hide
There’s a lotta rivers flowin’ but the seas learned how to fly.
There’s a lotta clouds a wondering which rockets knicked the sky
‘cos the roads are moving fast but the cars are standing still
and so much is happening yet nothing’s ever done
Oh we want to see the light but we’re dazzled by the sun.

(Bridge)
And some people’s only sunshine
Are their Cornflakes in the morning time
And the age of instant sunshine
In packets of bright display
I know will be dawning, in some future day.

There’s a lotta tears a fallin’, and more are being cried
There’s a lotta people trampled on as man takes another stride
There’s a lotta smoke a rising but the sky’s learned how to swim
There’s a lotta faces smiling but their hearts are feeling grim
Cos a lotta tension’s forming and the bags about to burst
There’s gotta be an answer cos the world is getting worse.
A lotta help is needed to get that truck back on the road
Cos too many people are pullin’ too heavier a load.
