The sun above, with fiery glow
Has warmed this land that lies below
In summer time, all baked in heat
The ground it burns beneath our feet
A land of green fades slow to brown
As scorching heat comes beating down
Too hot to rest, or sleep at night
From heat that never gives respite

But when above there forms a cloud
It spreads around its cooling shroud
The air is moist, and drips appears
The sky has brought its welcome tears

For comes the rains to cleanse our lands
And wash the dryness from our hands
To cool your brow, and chill your feet
The summer rains that taste so sweet

The gardens gleam in rainbow hues
The flowers feed on silver dew
And meadows sparkle, diamond lights
For spots of rain all twinkle bright

Now jump in puddles with a splash
Or slide about on slippery grass
Just feel the drizzle in your hair
And run about without a care

Oh, summer rain, come fall on me
To quench the heat and make us free
To lose ourselves in summer showers
Come let the rain drops fall for hours

Refresh yourself with tender spray
Enjoy the summer's rainy days
Each little drop of rain that falls
In summertime, gives life to all
