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 Wiggles song first sung in Here Comes a Song.


Song Lyrics

Here Comes A Song

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

Me Encanta Que Llueva

Me encanta ver llover, cuando en camas ya estoy
escucho salpicando en el techo suave cae
Sí tormenta llega a ser y los truenos fuertes son
Golpeando en mi ventana, lluvia y rallos veo caer

A mi osito abrazo me meto en mi cama
cierro los ojos y me cubro la cabeza yo
calientito y rico estoy se que todo estará bien
Me encanta ver llover, cuando en cama ya estoy
