Atmospheric River      
Words: F the Ineffable
Tune: Fascinating Rhythm, copyright 1924, Jacob Collier.

F the Ineffable sings:

Got a little river, an atmospheric river,
That pitter-pats through my brain
So darn persistent, the day isn't distant
When it'll drive me insane.

Comes in the morning without any warning
Hangs around Mendo all day
I'll have to sneak up to it
Someday, and speak up to it
I hope it listens when I say:

        Atmospheric river
        You've got me on the go
        Atmospheric river
        I'm all a-quiver.

        What a mess you're making
        The neighbors want to know
        Why my house is shaking
        Like chopped liver.

Each morning I try to see the sun
And find at night no work has been done
And it doesn’t seem to matter
So I go back to bed when rain starts to patter
I’m so well-rested

Atmospheric river
Why don't you take a day off
And make me happy?

Take your wind and rain
Somewhere far away off
And make it snappy

Oh, how I long to see
The sun that once shone on me
Atmospheric river
Won’t you stop picking on me

All sing:
                        Atmospheric river
                        We don’t wanna make a fuss
                        But stop messing with us!
                        Please stop raining now!
