If All The Raindrops

If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,
Oh what a rain it would be.
Standing outside with my mouth open wide,
Ah, ah, ah ,ah. - ah, ah, ah - ah, ah, ah.
If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,
Oh what a rain it would be!
(Let the kids fill in two of their own foods.)
