It's Raining, It's Pouring

Song Video


It's raining; it's pouring.
The old man is snoring.
He went to bed and bumped his head,
And he couldn't get up in the morning.

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

The order of events are a bit different here

It's raining, it's pouring
The old man is snoring
Bumped his head and went to bed
And couldn't get up in the morning.

This 1 is a little bit longer

It's raining, it's pouring;
The old man is snoring.
Bumped his head
And he went to bed
And he couldn't get up in the morning.
Rain, rain, go away;
Come again another day;
Little Johnny wants to play.

Old Man Sunshine is what you're singing about. He is a fictional character made up by a singer.

I think he had a traumatic brain injury with a subdural hematoma and was in a coma.

I am slightly offended because I am pretty sure the song was alluding to the old man dying
