Rain, rain, go away
come again another day
Little Johnny wants to play
rain, rain, go to Spain

Rain, rain, go away

Teaching idea & activities

Sing on a round and exercise the names of lands which you have already learned:

The teacher sings the first verses

(Rain, rain, go away,
come again another day)

and the children, one after the other, respond singing their names and different places

(little Johnny wants to play,
rain, rain, go to Spain,

or

little Penny wants to play,
rain, rain, go to China,
etc.).

 

Song Info

The lyrics are known at least from the 17th century, included in a collection of proverbs. The text of the song is offered for improvisation or adaption by the children using different names or places where the rain can go.

The form of the song is “repetitive” (see also “Finger Family“, “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, ‘Baby Bumblebee”, “The Wheels on the Bus”, “Old MacDonald had a Farm”)
