Song lyrics
Can't you see that it's just rainin'
There ain't no need to go outside

But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you
this song It's meant to keep you
From doin' what you're supposed to
Wakin' up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
I'll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it's the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Can't you see that it's just rainin'
There ain't no need to go outside

But just maybe, Hala ka ukulele
Mama made a baby
I really don't mind to practice
'Cause you're my little lady
Lady, lady love me
'Cause I love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains
Pretend like there's no world outside
And we could pretend that all the time

Can't you see that it's just raining
There ain't no need to go outside

Ain't no need, ain't no need
Can't you see, can't you see

Rain all day and I don't mind

The telephone singing, ringing, it's too early
Don't pick it up
We don't need to
We got everything we need right here
And everything we need is enough
It's just so easy
When the whole world fits inside of your arms

Do we really need to pay attention to the alarm
Wake up slow, wake up slow

But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you this song
It's meant to keep you
From doin' what your supposed to
Like wakin' up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
I'll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it's the weekend now
And we could pretend it all the time

Can't you see that it's just rainin'
There ain't no need to go outside

Ain't no need, ain't no need
Rain all day and I really, really, really don't mind
Can't you see, can't you see

We've got to wake up slow

Gosh, I love this guy's voice.
It's amazing, and especially this song just calms me down.
It always cheers me up.

I LOVE THIS SONG

My mum and I, first getting the album, played this song cos of the weird name.
Well guess what?
Now this is my fave song on the album.
All must bow down to the awesomeness of this song

In my opinion this is the best song of the album.. It's really great, but at the same time quite fun.
I like to sleep to the album, but also to wake up hearing it.. It's nice and calm

Jack said hala ka ukulele Mama made a baby
was kinda like the song "Tom and Ana sitting in the tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G in Hawaii and his wife just had a baby...so that's what the lyrics mean.
