HEAVY RAIN, by The Spinners (of Liverpool, UK), is on their album "Best of the Spinners: Maggie May" (1998), and on the various-artists compilations "Folk Legends, Vol. 1" (2001) and "The Folk Box" (2002). According to Allmusic.com, on the last album, it is attributed to "Davis, Groves, Hall, Jones." Those would be the members of The Spinners. (Not to be confused with The Spinners of Philadelphia, USA.)

Here's what I was able to transcribe from a couple of samples:

Me no put no close-a-door,
So me no look when rain a-come-o.

Rain, rain, rain,
What a heavy rain and breeze!
Oh, what a heavy, heavy rain!
What a heavy rain and breezle [or "breeze-o"?]!


[Anybody know what kind of dialect is being represented here?]

CHORUS:
Oh what a heavy, heavy rain, what a heavy rain and breeze-o,
Rain, rain, rain, what a heavy rain and breeze,
Oh what a heavy heavy rain, what a heavy rain and breeze-o,
Rain, rain, rain, what a heavy rain and breeze.

1: Me no put no close-a-door,
So me no look when rain a-come-o,

REPEAT CHORUS

2: Look, the old gal in a cheap frock,
Coulda wash out all the dye-o,

REPEAT CHORUS

3: All the big car them shut down
Only the small one them a run-o,

REPEAT CHORUS
