RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY.
Copyright, 1893, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by George F. Marion. Music by Andrew Mack.

Gazing from my window casement at a group of children play,
All absorbed in childish romping, sporting 'neath the sun's bright ray;
Suddenly the heavens clouded, threat'ning but a summer's ruin;
Anxious mothers seek their darlings, now their joys give way to pain.
Pouting lips and saddened faces, naughty rain their joys disperse;
From their little hearts the wail comes, nature's pathos in this verse:

Chorus.
Rain, rain, go away, come another washing day,
For the children want to play; don't stay any longer, rain.
Rain, rain, go away, come another washing day,
For the children want to play-'tis life's story over again.

See the husband and the father, on financial tempest tossed,
Bankrupt, ruined, stagger homeward-" Heaven help us, all Is lost."
Quick that angel-heaven bless her-by our side in care and strife,
Soothing all the ills that greet us, man's best friend-a loving wife.
Baby's arms are thrown around him, "Daddy must not cry that way;
Mamma, papa's eyes are raining, sing, and it may go away."

Chorus.
Rain, rain, go away, come another washing day,
For the children want to play; don't stay any longer, rain.
Love dries his tear-dimmed eye, fortune once again he'll try,
Determined now to do or die-'tis life's story over again.
