about

A mackerel sky is a sort of cloud formation that looks almost like scales across the sky with the blue sky peeking through behind it. "Never long wet and never long dry" is a folk saying about those kinds of clouds

lyrics

When blue sky peeks through lacy shrouds
Of Altocumulus rippling clouds
That’s a warm front planning to pass on by
Change is coming with a mackerel sky!

Mackerel sky, mackerel sky
Never long wet and never long dry with a mackerel sky!

Trout are jumping, let us all take note
Dress in layers and a waterproof coat
It’s a pretty morning and hopes run high
Change is coming with a mackerel sky

Mackerel sky, mackerel sky
Never long wet and never long dry with a mackerel sky!

My heart is full; it’s like to burst
With a need that feels like a powerful thirst
Way too long it’s been way too dry
Change is coming with a mackerel sky!

Mackerel sky, mackerel sky
Never long wet and never long dry with a
Mackerel sky, mackerel sky
Never long wet and never long dry with a mackerel sky!
