I've always loved lying in bed listening to the rain on the roof. It makes me feel snug and secure. This song came from that feeling.
Murray Cook, writer of this song from the Let's Wiggle book


"I Love It When It Rains" is a song first sung in Here Comes a Song.


Song Lyrics

I love it when it rains
And I lie in bed at night
I listen to it patter
On the roof soft and light
But then a storm may come
And the thunder starts to crash
The rain beats on the window
And I see the lightning flash

I hold on teddy tight
And sink down in my bed
I close my eyes so tight
And pull the covers over my head
I feel so snug and warm
I know that everything's alright
I love when it rains
As I lie in bed at night
