Rain

In the country
In the town
Raindrops falling
All around

Watching from my windowsill
I hear thunder on the hill
I see lightning in the sky
I see storm clouds passing by

I see sunbeams shining through
I see gray skies turning blue
I see rainbows overhead
I see yellow green and red

I make a wish and close my eyes
I hear thunder in the skies
I see dark clouds moving in
I see trees blow in the wind

In the country
In the town
Raindrops falling
All around

I like sleeping when it rains
Softly on my windowpanes
And when the evening rain is through
I make wishes that come true

So nice. So summer. I like sleeping when it rains
Softly on my windowpanes
And I also like listening to thunder while under a blanket--it's less scary!
