lyrics

It's raining, it's pouring
Your old man is snoring
So why don't you come out and play
With me?

He's not dreaming of you.
I bet he doesn't love you.
So why don't you come out and play
With me?

Come play with me.
Play with fire.
With the warm fluorescent passion of desire.
Oh I can see your secret smile
'Cause he has paid attention
In a long, long while.

He loves you, then leaves you.
I know how that grieves you
So why don't you come out and play
With me?
Why don't you come out and play
With me?

If you're happy and you know it,
Clap your hands.
But the sound of one hand clapping
Is too much for you to stand.
If you're happy and you know it,
Think again.
'Cause I can't stand seeing girls like you
With those kinds of men.

It's raining, it's pouring
Your old man is boring.
So why don't you come out and play
With me?
Why don't you come out and play
With me?
Why don't you come out and play
With me?
