Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat, fall the tiny raindrops,
Plashing oh so lightly on the window pane.
Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat, hear their voices calling,
'Tis a summer shower, 'tis the falling rain.
Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat, drip, drip, drop,
Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat, drip, drip, drop.

Ev'ry leaf, ev'ry flower, bids the raindrops welcome,
While the thirsty earth with gladness drinks her fill,
Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat, washing ev'ry petal,
Filling ev'ry brook and ev'ry tiny rill.
Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat, drip, drip, drop,
Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat, drip, drip, drop,

This song was in a section of the book called "Songs of Universal Elements - The Water"
It is written in the key of F Major, but begins on a D minor tonality. B will be flatted throughout the song.
The notes in the first measure and the last four measures should be played staccato (stuh KAH toe),
striking the keys quickly and releasing them to simulate the sound of raindrops.
