The song is "The Ballad of Me and Shirley MacLaine" by Danny Wilson. For those who don't know, they are basically an 80's one-hit-wonder mostly known for the song "Mary's Prayer" which was in the movie "Something About Mary" among other places.
The song is obscure enough that I couldn't find lyrics on the web so I'm going off memory here:
Shirley MacLaine and me
Got lost in the rain
It was December in May
We had to sleep on the hay
And as we counted the stars
She really turned me around, turned me around, turned me around...
The key phrases for my design being "lost in the rain" and "turned me around" (the one drop heading the other direction).
