Rain Rain Go Away


Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.
Rain, rain, go away.
Come again some other day.

Little Johnny wants to play,
In the meadow by the hay.
Rain, rain, go to Spain,
Never show your face again.

Rain, rain, pour down,
But not a drop on our town.
Rain on the green grass,
and rain on the tree,

And rain on the housetop,
but not on me.
Rain, rain, go away,
Come again on washing day.

Rain, rain, go to Germany,
And remain there permanently.
Rain, rain, go away,
Come on Martha's wedding day.






History:

The source and significance of this one is open for dispute, but one theory is it dates to the time of Spanish Armada, and its failure due, in part, to bad weather conditions. It also shares its lines with another popular nursery rhyme, "It's Raining, It's Pouring".
