RAINBOW IN DE SKY.

Written and Composed by Harry Dacre.
Pretty little gal in a bran'-new suit, see de rain a-fallin';
One foot bare and de odder in a boot, see de lubly rain;
It's been so dry fo' a month or two, poor Victoria Jane.
Will anybody lend her a great big shoe, to paddle in de golden rain
Oh! dat rainbow I see dat rainbow! twenty million miles up in de sky so high!
Golden rain am fallin', fallin', fallin' from the rainbow in de sky!
Come along o' me in a big balloon, heap o' rain a-fallin';
We'll sail up to de coon up in tie moon, t'ro' de golden rain;
We'll sit cross-legged on de big rainbow, me and lubly June:
Will anybody lend a balloon, to go right up into de golden rain?-Refrain.
Possum up a tree, an' it's all wet froo, froo de rain a-fallin';
Shoo fly, Jane, go an' get anodder shoe; look, what lubly rain;
De sky-blue stripe in your bran'-new frock's all washed out and plain;
Just listen to de voice ob de bantam cocks a-crowin' at de golden rain.-Refrain.
