Songs My Father Sang to Me

  It Ain't Gonna Rain No More 


Oh, it ain't gonna rain no more, no more
It ain't gonna rain no more
How in the heck can I wash around my neck
if it ain't gonna rain no more


Rabbi sittin' on the railroad track
Readin' his Bruchus
Along came the nine oh five and
Hit him in the tuchas
- Chorus

Dog walkin' on the railroad track
Didn't hear the whistle
Toot! Toot!
Hot dogs in a shisl!

A bum sittin' by the sewer
And by the sewer he died
So  at the coroners inquest
They called it 'sewer side'
- Chorus

A peanut sat on the railroad track
It's heart was all a-flutter
Along came the 4:15
Toot toot, peanut butter
- Chorus

My father is a butcher
My mother is a cook
And I'm the little hot-dog
With the candy that I took
- Chorus

My father built a chimney
He built it up so high
He had to take it down each night
To let the moon go by.
- Chorus

My daddy is a doctor,
My mommy is a nurse,
And I'm the little needle
That gets you where it hurts.
- Chorus

Mary had a little lamb
She kept it in a closet
And every time she took it out
It had left a small deposit
- Chorus

Mary had a little lamb,
Her father shot it dead
Oh, she still takes it off to school
But on a slice of bread.
- Chorus

Mary had a steamboat
The steamboat had a bell.
Mary went to heaven.
The steamboat went to TOOT-TOOT!
- Chorus

My uncle was a chemist.
A chemist he is no more.
For what he thought was H-2-O
Was H-2-S-O-4
- Chorus

Peter was a rabbit
A rabbit he is no more
For what he thought was a rabbit hole
Was a hole in the outhouse floor
- Chorus
