Didn't it rain children?
Talk about rain, oh my Lord!
Didn't it fall, didn't it fall?
Didn't it fall, my Lord didn't it rain?

Oh, it rained forty days
And it rained forty nights
There was no land no where in sight.
God send the angel to spread the news
He haste his wings and away he flew
To the East, to the West
To the North, to the South
All day all night how it rained, how it rained.

Didn't it rain children?
Talk about rain, oh my Lord!
Didn't it fall, didn't it fall?
Didn't it fall, my Lord didn't it rain?

Some at the window, some at the door
Some said, "Noah can't you take a little more?"
"No, no" said Noah, "no, no my friends
The nature got to keep, you can't get in
I told you, I told you a long time ago
You wouldn't hear me, you disobey me
Lord send the angel a warning to you
It began to rain and now you are through."

Well, it rained forty days
Forty nights without stopping.
Noah was glad
When the rain stopped dropping.
Knock at the window, knock at the door
"Come on, brother Noah
Can't you take little more?"
"No, no, my brothers you are full of sin,
God has the key, you can't get in
Would you listen how it rained."

Didn't it rain children?
Talk about rain, oh my Lord!
Didn't it fall, didn't it fall?
Didn't it fall, my Lord didn't it rain?
