Rain Rain Go Away (Play With It) Lyrics and Actions

♫ Rain, rain, [Move your fingers down like falling rain.]
go away. [Push your hands out, as if you were pushing the rain away.]
Come again another day. [Make a "come here" motion with your hands.]
DADDY wants to play. [Hold up your hand showing all five fingers and point to your thumb.]
Rain, rain, go away. [Move your fingers down and then push away the rain.]

Rain, rain,
go away.
Come again another day.
MOMMY wants to play. [Hold up your hand showing all five fingers and point to your index finger.]
Rain, rain, go away.

Rain, rain,
go away.
Come again another day.
BROTHER wants to play. [Hold up your hand showing all five fingers and point to your middle finger.]
Rain, rain, go away.

Rain, rain,
go away.
Come again another day.
SISTER wants to play. [Hold up your hand showing all five fingers and point to your ring finger.]
Rain, rain, go away.

Rain, rain,
go away.
Come again another day.
BABY wants to play. [Hold up your hand showing all five fingers and point to your pinky finger.]
Rain, rain, go away.

Rain, rain,
go away.
Come again another day.
ALL THE FAMILY wants to play. [Hold up your hand and wiggle all five fingers.]
Rain, rain, go away. ♫
