Does Anyone Know a Song about the Rain with the Line, “On each foot, I put a boot”?

Lynn Carr wrote asking for help with a childhood song….

Dear Mama Lisa,

My mother recalls us singing a song in our childhood that we learned in school. She would love to find the tune, but we cannot find the song anywhere on the Internet.

All she can recall of the lyrics are the following:

On each foot, I put a boot…
…bumbershoot…
And go outside and pitter patter…

I realize it’s sketchy, but I sure would love to find the rest of the lyrics and tune for her 85th birthday approaching.

With thanks,

Lynn Carr​

If anyone can help with this song, please let us know in the comments below…

Thanks! Mama Lisa

    Pitter Pat Pitter Pat
    It’s a rainy day
    Pitter Pat Pitter Pat
    I’ll go outside to play
    I’ll grab my coat and bumbershoot
    On each foot I’ll put a boot
    Grab my coat and grab my hat
    And go out in the pitter pat

    Thanks for the song lyrics Nancy! Would you know where it comes from?

  3. Nancy Says:

    We sang this in elementary school. I seem to remember that it was in a song book, but since that was over 60 years ago I don’t remember anything about the book. I guess the song has just been lurking around in my head for awhile.
    I do remember the tune and could perhaps work out the notes.

    That would be great! Thanks Nancy!

    Nancy, thank you so much for filling in the blanks on the lyrics and for taking the time to post!

    “Bumbershoot?” I think that’s a Pittsburgh term. Where was this song? I vaguely remember a song like this in Ohio.
