Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Well, there was a crooked man and he had a crooked smile
Had a crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile

(Reverse)
Had a crooked cat and he had a crooked mouse
And they all lived together

Four ladies chain across (ah ha)
Don't let the rain come down
You chain 'em back (oh no)
And promenade on around (ah ha)
Don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well this crooked little man and his crooked little smile
Took his crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile

(Reverse)
Bought some crooked nails and a crooked little bat
And he tried to fix his roof

Four ladies chain
Rat-a-tat-tat (ah ha)

*Now this crooked little man and his crooked cat and mouse
They all lived together in the crooked little house

(Reverse)
Has a crooked door with a crooked little latch
Has a crooked roof

Four ladies chain across the set (ah ha)


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands 'round and roll it inside of the set
When you meet the sides, you make a right hand star, you bet
One time around and then, the heads star left inside you go
All the way to the corner lady, touch 1/4 there you know, scoot back
Make it two times, my friend (ah ha)
Swing and promenade around the land (oh no)
Don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and might drown


TAG

My roof's got a hole in it, my roof's got a hole in it
My roof's got a hole in it, and I might drown (ah ha)

Don't Let The Rain Come Down (Crooked Little Man)
 
 

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

There was a crooked man and he had a crooked smile
Had a crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Had a crooked cat and he had a crooked mouse
They all lived together in a crooked little house

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

Well, this crooked little man and his crooked little smile
Took his crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Bought some crooked nails and a crooked little bat
Tried to fix his roof with a rat-tat-tat-tat-tat

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

Now this crooked little man and his crooked cat and mouse
They all live together in a crooked little house
Has a crooked door with a crooked little latch
Has a crooked roof with a crooked little patch

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it (my roof's got a hole in it)
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

Lyrics by Ersel Hickey and Ed E. Miller.
Recorded by The Serendipity Singers.
