Lyrics

*It’s raining, it’s pouring,
the old man is snoring.
He went to bed and he bumped his head
and he couldn’t get up in the morning.

# Oh, oh! Oh no don’t let the rain come down.
Oh, oh! Oh no don’t let the rain come down.
Oh, oh! Oh no don’t let the rain come down.
My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown.
I said “My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown”.

When it’s pouring rain, I love to play outside.
I wear my special coat, it keeps me really dry.
My feet tucked in gumboots, love to jump in puddles.
Until my Mummy calls me back inside for tea and cuddles.

# Repeat

Rain, rain, go away.
Come again some other day.
Little Johnny wants to play.
So come again some other day.

One little raindrop riding on a cloud,
riding on a cloud, riding on a cloud.
One little raindrop riding on a cloud.
one little drop of rain.

I hear thunder, I hear thunder,
hark don’t you, hark don’t you?
Pitter, patter rain drops.
Pitter, patter rain drops.
I’m wet through
So are you!

Repeat*

Music

  • Look at the White Dove Music Activity and then the You Can Squeeze an Orange Activity.
  • Children need to make a pile of the bits of their paper and place in front of them - ask children to stand up. Explain that once the music starts children can pick up their pile and throw the bits of paper or pretend raindrops over themselves, in time to the music. Children continue to pick up the raindrops and throw the raindrops over themselves.
    When you hear the lyrics: ‘When it's Pouring Rain’ ask the children to jump onto the bits of paper and pretend the raindrops are puddles.
    Resume back to collecting raindrops and throwing the raindrops over themselves.
    When you hear the lyrics: ‘One Little Raindrop’ ask the children to pick up one rain drop and throw the raindrop up high just over themselves.
    Resume back to collecting raindrops and throwing the raindrops over themselves.
    For the last song Oh, Oh, Oh No don’t Let the Rain Come Down ask children to gather lots of raindrops, stand close in a huddle, you the teacher count down 4,3,2,1 and everyone throws the raindrops up high at the same time. Repeat until the end of the song.
  • Green, Green the Grass is Green song. Place a bin or large bag in the middle of the children. Explain how once the music starts the children can collect all the raindrops and place them in the bin. The aim is to gather all the raindrops before the song has finished. Children need to be aware of their own space when collecting the raindrops and to be careful of bumping into other children. If all the raindrops are gathered before the end of the song, children can form a circle, hold hands and dance around in a clock wise direction.
    At the end of the song the children can bow and give themselves a big clap.
