Subject: Arrangement of It's Raining...
From: GUEST,Susan-Marie
Date: 17 Aug 02 - 11:42 PM

Does anyone know a sung version of "It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring.." where that rhyme serves as the chorus and other nursery rhymes are the verses? I can only remember two verses:

Won't be my father's Jack
No I won't be my mother's Jill
I'll be a fiddlers wife
And fiddle when I will

Ladybug, lady bug
Fly away home
Your house is on fire
ANd your children they will burn

Does anyone know where I would have heard this, and if there are other verses?

Peter, Paul and Mary's "It's Raining." (From HERE)

IT'S RAINING
Stookey/Chandler © 1962 Pepamer Music Corp.
renewed 1990 Neworld Media Music Publishers -ASCAP

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

(Spoken)
"Hey I got an idea ... we could all play hide and go seek inside,
now everybody hide and I'll be it!"

Star light, star bright,
first star I see tonight,
wish I may, wish I might,
have the wish I wish tonight.

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

Five Ten Fifteen Twenty.
Twenty-five Thirty. Thirty-Five Forty.

Lady Bug, Lady Bug, fly away home.
Your house is on fire, and your children,
they will burn, They will burn.

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

Forty-Five Fifty. Fifty-five Sixty.
Sixty-five Seventy. Seventy-five eighty.

Won't be my father's Jack,
no I won't be my mother's Jill,
I'll be a fiddler's wife and fiddle when I will.

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.

Eighty-Five, Ninety. Ninety-five, a Hundred.

(Spoken) Anyone round my base is it! Ready or not, here I come!

(Spoken) Allee Allee In Free!

~Masato

I would imagine it's the specific arrangement and melodies they used that is copyrighted, not the nursery rhymes.
