If you want a longer version this is the one

Oh the night was dark and stormy,
and the ole goat was half blind.
backed up to the barbed wire fence,
and scratched his never you mind.

It ain't gonna rain no more no more
It ain't gonna rain no more
How in the heck can I wash my neck
(If) it ain't gonna rain no more.

Oh the night was dark and stormy,
and the wind was full of sleet,
ole man stood out on the back porch,
and his shoes were full of feet.

It ain't gonna rain no more no more
It ain't gonna rain no more
How in the heck can I wash my neck
(If) it ain't gonna rain no more.

A bum sat by the sewer,
and by the sewer he died.
and at the coronors inquest,
they called it sewer side.

It ain't gonna rain no more no more
It ain't gonna rain no more
How in the heck can I wash my neck
(If) it ain't gonna rain no more.

There are 3 verses to this version

It ain't gonna rain no more, no more
It ain't gonna rain no more.
How in the heck can I wash my neck
If it ain't gonna rain no more?

I woke up in the morning
I looked upon the wall
The bedbugs and the beetles
Were having a game of ball.
The score was six to nothing
The bedbugs were ahead
A beetle hit a homer
And knocked me out of bed!

Oh, it ain't gonna rain no more, no more
It ain't gonna rain no more.
How in the heck can I wash my neck
If it ain't gonna rain no more?

Older version popular in the 60s

Aint gonna rain no more no more
Aint gonna rain no more no more
How in the heck can you wash your neck if it aint gonna rain no more.

Bullfrog sittin on a lillypad lookin at the sky
Lillypad broke frog went croak
Got water in his eye.

Aint gonna rain no more no more
Aint gonna rain no more no more
How in the heck can you wash your neck if it aint gonna rain no more.

Possum in a simon tree racoon on the ground
Said the racoon to the possum
Throw them simons down.

Aint gonna rain no more no more
Aint gonna rain no more no more
How in the heck can you wash your neck if it aint gonna rain no more.

Saw a kitty sittin side of the road
Wasnt that kitty pretty
Walked right over to pick him up
But he wasnt that kind of kitty.

Aint gonna rain no more no more
Aint gonna rain no more no more
How in the heck can you wash your neck if it aint gonna rain no more.

My dad used to sing the following verses: Oh, the rich man rides on the street car, the poor man rides on the train but the hobo rides in the box car and they get there all the same! Oh the fox's tail is bushy, the elephant's tale is bare but the rabbit has no tail at all it's just a bunch of hair!

The rich man uses cold cream, the poor man uses soap, the hobo uses axle grease, but he gets clean just the same!

Oh, the butterfly has golden wings, The firefly's wings of flame The bedbug has no wings at all, But he gets there just the same. I went to see my Susie, She met me at the door, Her eyes and nose all over her face And her feet all over the floor.

A bear sleeps in his bear skin, quite comfortably I guess, but when I slept in my bare skin, I nearly froze to death.

Mary had a liitle lamb, she fed him caster oil and every time he'd jump the fence, he'd fertilize the soil! Old Mother Hubbord went to the cupbord to get her poor daughter a dress, but when she got there the cupbord was bare, and so was her daughter, I guess. **FINAL VERSE** Every time we sing this song, it never ever comes true, 'cuse every time we sing this song, we get a heavy dew!

A rich man drives his own car A poor man rides a bus A bum walks along the roadside And he gets there without a fuss
