Thread Name: Girl Scout songs - from the fading ditto sheets...
Subject: LYR ADD: If all the raindrops were gum drops...

IF ALL OF THE RAINDROPS WERE LEMON DROPS AND GUM DROPS

If all of the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops
Oh what a rain it would be
I'd sit outside with my mouth open wide and
Ah ah ah ah ah ah aaaah

(the way I learned it from the five year olds in 1983, Denver)

If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops
Oh what a rain it would be
I wouldn't mind if the sun never shined
I'd keep on hoping for raindrops all the time.
If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,
Oh what a rain it would be
I'd stand outside with my mouth open wide
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
If all the rain drops were lemon drops and gum drops
Oh what a rain it would be.

(As given in ditto sheets from girl scout camp, Colorado, 1977. I just don't remember singing it!)
