IT DON’T DO NOTHING BUT RAIN (Phil Cook) As recorded by: Harry Hudson’s Melody Men V. Harry Hudson Also recorded by: Lew Childre Milly Mayerl Al Starita / Piccadilly Players Billy West (Billy Jones) & Bob Thomas (Ernest Hare) I get all dressed in the Sunday best And it don’t do nothing but rain Me pants all pressed, with me coat and vest But it don’t do nothing but rain It’s hard to smile when the clouds are black And the rain keeps trickling down your back Guess I was born with a raincoat on ‘Cos it don’t do nothing but rain Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection As recorded by: Lew Childre Weather man, weather man, Can’t you hear me pine Weather man change your plan And make that old sun shine I keep hearing folks crooning about It ain’t gonna rain no more But when I get ready to step out It starts right in to pour Now I get all dressed in my Sunday best And it don’t do nothing but rain Ma pants all pressed with ma coat and vest And it don’t do nothing but rain It’s hard to smile when them clouds look black And the rain comes trickling down your back I oughta been born with a bathing suit on ‘Cos it don’t do nothing but rain I can’t make love ‘neath the stars above When it don’t do nothing but rain There’s no spark in a public park When it don’t do nothing but rain It cramps my style, I can’t do my stuff When the rain comes oozing out of my cuff I can’t pet her when the bench is wet And it don’t do nothing but rain I take my sweet out for a walking treat It don’t do nothing but rain We cross the street and she got wet feet ‘Cos it didn’t do nothing but rain Now you all know what Sir Raleigh did He said to the Queen, “oh, step on it, Kid” I’m gonna trade my coat for a ferry boat ‘Cos it don’t do nothing but rain Well I had me a date at the garden gate It didn’t do nothing but rain My shoes all shined, I’m looking mighty fine And it don’t do nothing but rain Well the ducks are glad when the rain drop flows But I ain’t got no webbing between my toes Musta got my blood from the Johnstown flood ‘Cos it don’t do nothing but rain I take my gal outside for an auto ride It don’t do nothing but rain We couldn’t go far in an open car ‘Cos it didn’t do nothing but rain Well I parked the car and I talked and talked Well I knew she couldn’t get out and walk But the sweet young thing, she carried water wings When it didn’t do nothing but rain I mean, it don’t do nothing but rain (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - September 2013)
