I'm only happy when it rains

"Baby Got Rain" -- an ode to El Niño
(sung to the melody of Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back")

I like rain storms and I can not lie
You other gardeners can't deny
that when clouds roll in over heat-scorched waste
sprayin' rain drops in your face,
seeds get sprung! Wanna push up dirt
cuz they know those clouds are stuffed
heavy with the rain that they’re carrying
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring

El Niño I wanna get with ya
and take your picture
My weatherman tried to warn me
but that rain you got
make me so happy

Ooh, rumbling thundering
You say you wanna get in my beds?
Well then fall, rain, fall,
'Cause you ain't that average squall
Baby got rain!


  1. I'm still giggling over your Weird Al version of "Baby Got Back." Maybe you should rap it and put it on YouTube. :-)

  2. bwwaaahahahahahah!!! oh yeah!

  3. EXCELLENT! -- I'll show my son, who really enjoys singing the original song. I like your lyrics much better, so maybe he'll learn yours instead!
