I've always loved lying in bed listening to the rain on the roof. It makes me feel snug and secure. This song came from that feeling.
Murray Cook, writer of this song

"I Love it When it Rains" is a song first sung in Here Comes A Song.

Song Lyrics

I love it when it rains and I lie in bed at night

I listen to it patter on the roof soft and light

But then a storm may come and the thunder starts to crash

The rain beats on the window and I see the lightning flash.

I hold on teddy tight and sink down in my bed

I close my eyes so tight and pull the covers over my head

I feel so snug and warm; I know that everything's alright

I love when it rains as I lie in bed at night.
