GUEST,keberoxu Lyr Req: vocalese: Cloudburst (Jon Hendricks) (10) RE: Lyr Req: vocalese: Cloudburst (Jon Hendricks) 27 Jun 20

This lengthy text may be best captured
in pieces.

The music itself breaks down into
the Chorus, which opens the whole song,
and then those solos, which become vocal verses.

So here's the part that is easiest to understand:

I'm using the lyrics sung by the Pointer Sisters,
which accounts for any gender reversal:
women singing about finding the man of their dreams.


Jon Hendricks, words

I was blue
And I was always
Wearing a frown,

Because my man
Had turned me down;

Then we met,
And you can bet
I knew from the first,

You were my love,
'Cause that's when the old gray -- cloud burst!

My heart
Really flew
The day you caught my eye;

I hope
That we two
Will never say goodbye!

Clouds of gray
Have silver linings
When they're reversed;

I found your love,
And that's when the old gray -- cloud burst!
