It’s raining, it’s pouring.

The old man is snoring.

He bumped his head and went to bed

And he couldn’t get up in the morning.

It’s raining, it’s pouring.

The old woman is snoring.

He bumped his head and went to bed

And he couldn’t get up in the morning.

It’s raining, it’s pouring.

All the children are snoring.

They went to bed and bumped their heads.

And they couldn’t get up in the morning.
