When It's Raining by Rob Oxford

The world’s a different place when it’s raining
Can you tell from outer space that it’s raining?
Sometimes a race is "called" because it’s raining
But some games can still be played when it’s raining
(Like Checkers and Chess)

Worms will stick their necks out when it's raining
But then birds have them for lunch when it's raining
Puddles can be jumped in when it's raining
That’s why Moms get a bit cross when it's raining

Squirrels will run across your yard when it's raining
But have trouble dodging cars when it’s raining
You can stay dry but it's hard when it's raining
It just depends on where you are when it’s raining

The rain makes funny sounds when it's raining
It kind of ricochets off the ground when it’s raining
For 40 Days and 40 Nights it kept on raining
But in the rain, Marines still train when it’s raining

My Dad said the fish like to bite when it’s raining
But when they don’t, let me tell you it gets boring
It’s hard to fly a kite when it’s raining
Because you can’t look up into the sky when it’s raining

There are big drops, there are small drops 
And a rainbow when the rain stops
But I like the rain

And I like what it brings 
Because I know that it brings

New life to things
