It Might As Well Rain Until September

This song is by Carole King and appears on the album Natural Woman: The Very Best of Carole King (2001).

What shall I write?
What can I say?
How can I tell you how much I miss you?

The weather here has been as nice as it can be
Although it doesn't really matter much to me
For all the fun I'll have while you're so far away
It might as well rain until September

I don't need sunny skies for thing I like to do
'Cause I stay home the whole day long and think of you
As far as I'm concerned each day's a rainy day
So It might as well rain until September

My friends look forward to their picnics on the beach
Yes everybody loves the summertime
But you know darling while your arms are out of reach
The summer isn't any friend of mine

It doesn't matter whether skies are grey or blue
It's raining in my heart 'cause I can't be with you
I'm only living for the day you're home to stay
So It might as well rain until September
September, September, oh
It might as well rain until September

Song Info

Written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King.
This 1962 hit was actually the demo recording by Carole King, intended as a song for Bobby Vee. The recording was so casual that to this day the master of it does not exist and any CD versions of it have poor quality. Carole King then went close to 9 years before her next hit, although all those residuals from all those great early 60's songs she wrote kept her out of the poor house.
