Hear the tap, tap, tapping
Of the raindrops dropping
On the window, asking “Let us in;”
And I know these showers
Aare lovers of the flowers,
In the vale where you and I have been.

With a soft, soft patter,
And a sweet, sweet clatter
On the hilltop, meadow and away on the plain,
’Tis a free, glad pleasure
When the heart keeps measure
To the falling of the summer rain.

Hear the tap, tap, tapping
Of the raindrops dropping
On the roof when all is hushed to rest;
It is music sweet
As the voice of those we meet,
Those whose love and friendship we love best.
