It's raining, it's pouring,
The Old Man is snoring,
He went to bed with a cold in his head,
And he didn't get up in the morning.
Rain, rain, go away,

Jessica went to visit her grandfather.
He lived by himself and sometimes he got lonely.
When she got there, her grandfather was sitting on the back step holding a bowl of milk.
