Maybe you don’t know?
“When It Rains It Really Pours” is a song written by William Robert “Billy” Emerson and originally recorded by him in 1954. It was later recorded by Elvis Presley in 1957, but not released until 1965 on the album Elvis for Everyone.
The song is a bluesy shuffle about a man who is having a bad day. Everything seems to be going wrong, and he can’t catch a break. The chorus, “When it rains it really pours,” expresses the feeling of being overwhelmed by misfortune.
Presley’s version of the song is a classic example of his early rockabilly style. The driving rhythm and Presley’s energetic vocals give the song a sense of urgency and excitement. The song was a hit for Presley, reaching number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Here are the lyrics of the song: “When It Rains, It Really Pours”
You’ve got it, baby.
You are the only one I chose.
Don’t leave me here with all these heartaches,
Only you and heaven knows
About my troubles troubles troubles.When it rains, it really pours…You shouldn’t have took away my loving
You know you thrill me from head to toe.
I got a feeling for you baby
And you’re the only one who knows
About my troubles, troubles, troubles.
When it rains, it really pours…
You know what you did to make me love you
You really opened up my nose.
You got what you wanted, now you left me.
That’s the way the story goes.
Well, I got troubles, troubles, troubles.
When it rains, it really pours.
