“When the sun shines, we'll shine together. Told you I'll be here forever. Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end. Now that it's raining more than ever, know that we'll still have each other, You can stand under my umbrella, You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, ehUnder my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh” - Rhianna
