Peter, Paul And Mary - It's Raining Lyrics




It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

"Hey I got an idea ... we could all play hide and go seek inside,
now everybody hide and I'll be it!"

Star light, star bright,
first star I see tonight,
wish I may, wish I might,
have the wish I wish tonight.

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

Five Ten Fifteen Twenty.
Twenty-five Thirty. Thirty-Five Forty.

Lady Bug, Lady Bug, fly away home.
Your house is on fire, and your children,
they will burn, They will burn.

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

Forty-Five Fifty. Fifty-five Sixty.
Sixty-five Seventy. Seventy-five eighty.

Won't be my father's Jack,
no I won't be my mother's Jill,
I'll be a fiddler's wife and fiddle when I will.

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

Eighty-Five, Ninety. Ninety-five, a Hundred.

Anyone round my base is it! Ready or not, here I come!
Allee Allee In Free!

    REEEEE AWAY SATAN AWAY AHHHHH

  3. Ope,

    I love this song so much, I'm very thankful that my nana introduced me to their music!

  4. flungingpictures

    This song should be the anthem for Metro Vancouver on the wet coast of Canada

  5. michavandam

    This song was written by Pete Seeger.

    Another songwriter using the nursery rhyme "It's Raining, It's Pouring" in his song, was Roger Hodgson. The children at the end of Supertramp's song "It's Raining Again" sing it.

  6. Oils With G

    This song is eerie to me but I love it for some reason...

    +Nageshwara Prasad yes

  9. Ron Delby

    This version is a bit slow. The concert and live versions are much prettier. PP&M live is more polished. The tempo was a bit faster too which made it better.

  10. Gen

    My mother used to put on this tape for me in the car when I was a kid. The bit about the house on fire and the children burning always seemed so morbid and out of place to me and it still does!

    Escape From NY

    Ring around the rosie was morbid too, but that has nothing to do with PP&M.

    MayRose Saenz

    It always freaked me out too

    MayRose Saenz

    But then again they are singing about a man who bumped his head and died

    Natalie Harshman

    If you think about it a whole lot of traditional nursery rhymes are really depressing and violent...

    Thanks :)

  12. xiphocostal

    "And your children, they will burn." That line sent shivers down my spine as a kid. Much as I loved this song.

    Bogey Patel

    The morbid lyrics come from a nursery rhyme -- figure that one out! Maybe the message is be grateful for what you've got!

  13. Nathan A Boyd

    Wonderful harmonies!
