The Rain Is Failing

Language: English after the English

The rain is falling all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.

The rain is falling all around,
On each and every hill,
It rains on all the houses here,
On every Jack and Jill.

Rain falls around us,
On all thirsty lands.
Rain drops on mountains,
And on sea-side sands.

The rain is falling all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.
It rains on you and me.
