Song Lyrics:
There are at least three version of the song played. Here are different lyrics:

From 4/21/1985

The night was dark and dreary, and the air was full of sleet
Well the old man stood out in the storm and his shoes were full of feet.

chorus

Well the butterfly flits on wings of gold, the June Bug wings of flame.
The bedbug has no wings at all but he gets there just the same

chorus

Oh, mosquiti he fly high, oh, mosquiti he fly low
If ol’ misaquito light on me, he ain’t a gonna fly no mo.’

chorus

Well, a bull frog sittin’ on a lily pad, looking up at the sky
Oh, the lily pad broke and the frog fell in, got water all in his eyes

chorus

Well, here’s a verse about a man and a trombone. Well, the words to it are few.
He blew, he blew, he blew, he blew; he blew, he blew, he blew.

chorus

Well, a man lay down by a sewer Hum-hum, and by the sewer he died, he died.
At the coroner’s inquest, they called it sewer-side.

chorus

A little black and white animal out in the woods. I says ain’t that little cat pretty, hum hum.
I went right over to pick it up, but it wasn’t that kind of a kitty.

chorus



From 2/01/1981, 5/23/1983 & 8/03/2003 shows. On the 8/03/2003 show Dr. Demento called it a million record seller from 1924. On the 5/23/1983 show he called it a song from 1923.

Oh, the butterfly flits on wings of gold, the June Bug wings of flame.
The bedbug has no wings at all but he gets there just the same

Chorus
Oh, it ain’t gonna rain no mo’ no mo, it ain’t gonna rain no mo’
How in the world can the old folks tell, it ain’t gonna rain no more

Well, a bull frog sittin’ on a lily pad, looking up at the sky
The ol’ Lily pad broke and the frog fell in, water all in his eye

chorus

Oh, mosquiti he fly high, oh, mosquiti he fly low
If ol’ misaquito light on me, he ain’t a gonna fly no mo.’

chorus

Say, I saw a sign in a hardware store, boy wanted sixteen years
Now, that’s too long to wait for a boy, it brings eyes to my tears

chorus

Well, I went to call on Suzie, and she met me at the door,
Shoes and stocking in her hands and her feet all over the floor.

chorus

Well, a man lay down by the sewer, hum hum, and by the sewer he died. Yes
Now at the coroner’s request, hum hum, they called it sewer-side.

chorus

Well, little black and white animal out in the woods, says ain’t that little cat pretty.
I went right over to pick it up, but it wasn’t that kind of a kitty.

chorus



On the 8/04/1991 show was played the 2nd installment of the song, with new verses:

The shades of night were falling fast, when for a kiss he asked her.
She must have answered yes because the shades came down still faster.

chorus

Well, Mary had a brand new Ford, she liked it very well.
She drove it in to a telephone pole and now it looks like . . . rain

chorus

A golf ball sailing through the air went by a man a humming.
He heard the caddy holler, 'fore', and thought three more were comin'.

chorus

On mules, we find two legs behind and two we find before.
We stand behind before we find what the two behind be for.

chorus

Well, Sally had a little mule, she called him gentle Able.
One day she tried to pull his tail and he kicked her in the stable.

chorus
It ain't gonna rain no mo' no mo', It ain't gonna rain no mo'.
But how in the heck can you wash your neck if it ain't gonna rain no mo'.

The night was dark and stormy; the air was full of sleet;
A barefoot boy with shoes on; sat standing in the street.


The night was dark and stormy; no streetcar was in sight;
I stepped into a cigar store and asked them for a light.

The version on our old Victrola record says -
Peanut sittin on a railroad track
It's heart was all a flutter...
The train came roarin' round the bend
WOO WOO peanut butter

and the last verse is kind of a self-promoting cliche:

This song is almost over
We're goin for a ride
If ya want to hear us sing some more
just play the other side!

As this song is traditional, there's also:

Rich man rides in a taxi, poor man rides on a train,
A hobo he just walks the tracks, but he gets there just the same

chorus

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood,
if you put a saw in his tiny paw a ton of wood he could

chorus

A peanut sittin' on a railroad track, his heart was all a-flutter
along came engine number ten, toot-toot peanut butter

chorus

It isn't going to rain anymore, anymore, it isn't going to rain anymore,
the grammer's good but the songs a bore, so we'll sing it like before
