Lyrics:
All you possum-belly queens, get outta here
Gypsy's out for blood tonight
She's got “love” and “hate” tattooed on her fist
She's drunk and she's ready to fight

She used to run a little shot and beer joint
Now she's a jockey on the Astro ride
She took me for a whirl one night
Man, it messed me up inside

[Chorus]
Ai-yi-yi, ah the rain, how long can this rain go on?
There's nothin' sadder than the carnival, on the road to Bayamon

[Verse 2]
In a parking lot down in old San Juan
Out on the road to Bayamon
We set up tents and the alibi joints
And the freak show from Leon

We had French Canadian racketeers
And rednecks from down south
And the Puerto Rican pistol boys
With boa constrictor mouths

[Chorus]
Ai-yi-yi, ah the rain, how long can this rain go on?
There's nothin' sadder than the carnival, on the road to Bayamon

[Verse 3]
Then the wire walker started drinkin' hard
The payrole check never came
And someone stole the little two-headed calf
And the midway drowned in the rain

Yeah it rained through the month of April
And the first two weaks of May
And all across the island
I could hear the children sing

[Chorus]
Ai-yi-yi, ah the rain, how long can this rain go on?
There's nothin' sadder than the carnival, on the road to Bayamon
