It’s Raining

I wanted to make up a song about rain to sing with the kids at school when it’s raining and they have to miss recess. It doesn’t rain much in California, so i don’t play it that often. I didn’t know what instrument to use for the solo, so I added a thunderclap instead. I hope it didn’t scare anybody…

It’s raining, it’s raining
It’s gonna rain all day
I wish it would stop raining
Rain, rain, go away
It’s raining, it’s raining
A storm is in the air
There’s thunder and lightning
And water everywhere

Oh, when the sun starts shining
I’ll be smiling too
Oh, now I wait by my window
That rainbow is overdue

It’s raining, it’s raining
Umbrellas in a row
Empty handed people
Drenched from head to toe
It’s raining, it’s raining
Rain is pouring down
It’s like the sky is crying
Teardrops on the ground

It’s raining, it’s raining
It’s windy and it’s wet
Every cloud is bursting
And it’s not over yet
It’s raining, it’s raining
Raining cats and dogs
Filling up the rivers
For the fish and frogs

Oh, when the sun starts shining
I’ll be smiling too
Oh, now I wait by my window
That rainbow is overdue

It’s raining, it’s raining
Flooding all around
Precipitation falling
Soaking this whole town
It’s raining, it’s raining
It’s gonna rain all day
I wish it would stop raining
Rain, rain, go away
Rain, rain, go away
I want to go and play
