Rain Rain Go Away

“Rain Rain Go Away” is an English nursery rhyme that probably dates back to the 17th century.

It is a very popular rhyme as it is very easy to remember by children of any age.

The first version of the song was mentioned by writer and historian James Howell and it also contained only two verses:

Raine raine goe to Spain:
Faire weather come againe

The song was also covered or mentioned by many other popular artists like Foo Fighters or Nine Inch Nails, and it was also the theme of the Australian children’s TV show “Round me Twist”.
