And stratus layers may hang low as a drizzle droplet falls, Or show me puffs of cumulus like soft white cotton balls. (Chorus) The nimbostratus might bring rain as a warm front leaves its trail, And watch with dread as thunderheads bring you lightning storms and hail. (ouch!) Cloud Cover I keep one eye on the sky.
