Rain is Falling II - Lightning


Rain, rain, feeling their game getting boring,
Rain, rain, together they form a new ring,
Rain, rain, hand in hand they sing,
Rain, rain, their claps bring forth lightning.
Rain, rain, their fun covers the Spring…

I can see rain racing down the lane,
So I ran,
Trying to catch the rain.

I can see lightning chasing after rain,
So I ran,
Trying to escape from lightning.

Rain and Lightning, an odd pair,
Lightning and rain, they mess up your hair,

Even though their game wets the terrain,
I know, there is always more to rain……

Far south the lift,
