Rain rain go away song lyrics

Rain, rain, go away, Come again another day.
Little Johnny wants to play; Rain, rain, go to Spain, Never show your face again!

Rain, rain, go away, Come again another day.
Little Johnny wants to play; Rain, rain, go to Spain, Never show your face again!

Rain, rain, go away, Come again another day.
Little Johnny wants to play; Rain, rain, go to Spain, Never show your face again!

(Repeat as many times as you want or even try with different names each time!)

About the Rain rain go away song

Who hasn’t tapped their toes to “Rain, Rain, Go Away” while waiting for the clouds to part? Well, probably most people. But either way, this timeless tune is all about making the best of a drizzly situation. Young or old, we’ve all chanted these magical words to shoo the clouds away and make room for some fun!

So, what’s the story here?

Kids and adults alike join forces to send those rain clouds packing so they can go out and play. With an incredibly simple tune and not too many words, it’s a great start to practice English for really young learners. That’s probably why variations of the song stretch all the way back to ancient Greece and Rome (but they probably didn’t use the English version).

Tips for teaching “Rain, Rain, Go Away”

While singing, why not act it out? Pretend to be rain clouds and then the shining sun. You can also discuss different weather conditions or use this as a launchpad to talk about what activities can be done indoors vs. outdoors.

OR toss in some paper and colors to draw your own sun or rainclouds; the sky is the limit!

Remember, whether it’s raining or shining, any day can be a good day when you make your own sunshine!
