Here are some nursery rhymes and proverbs about rain...

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Rain, Rain, Go Away - Mama Lisa's House of English Nursery Rhymes, Intro Image


1. Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.

2. Rain, rain, go to Spain,
Never show your face again.

3. Rain, rain, pour down,
But not a drop on our town.

4. Rain on the green grass,
And rain on the tree,
And rain on the housetop,
But not on me.

5. Rain, rain, go away,
Come again on washing day.

6. Rain, rain, go to Germany,
And remain there permanently.

7. Rain, rain, go away,
Come on Martha's wedding day.

8. Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day;
Little Arthur wants to play.

9. Rain, rain go away,
Come again some April day,
Little Johnny wants to play.

10. Rain before seven,
Fine before eleven.

11. Rain on Monday,
Sunshine next Sunday.

12. Rain, rain go away,
Come again on Saturday.
