"Splash! Fall the Raindrops"
 
Splash! Fall the raindrops, Clap hands softly.
To the ground they go; Point to ground with hands.
We need the raindrops, Wiggle fingers down from head to waist.
To help the flowers grow. Make cup of hands for flowers.

"If All the Raindrops"
 
If All the Raindrops  
Were lemondrops and gumdrops,  
Oh, what a rain that would be!  
Standing outside, with my mouth open wide,  
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah! Throw head back and open mouth
If all the raindrops  
Were lemondrops and gumdrops,  
Oh, what a world that would be!
