(American folk song)

1. It rained a mist, it rained a mist,
It rained all over the town, town, town,
It rained all over the town.

2. And all the kids went out to play
A-tossing their ball around, round, round,
A-tossing their ball around.

3. At first they tossed their ball too low,
And then they tossed it too high, high, high,
And then they tossed it too high.

4. They tossed it into a lady’s garden
Where roses and lilies lie, lie, lie,
Where roses and lilies lie.
