I'm just a tiny drop of water floating in the air.
You've probably never noticed me, you'd scarcely know I'm there.
So you might be surprised to know the places where I've been,
The things that I have done and what I hope to do again.

I started in the ocean in the crashing swelling waves.
I've flowed in raging rivers carving canyons, cliffs and caves.
You've seen me in the summer raindrops soaking fields of corn,
And wiped me from your window pane upon a frosty morn.

I am just a tiny drop of water, yes it's true,
But though I may be tiny, you just watch what I can do.

I've fallen with the snowflakes keeping schoolkids home from class.
They've rolled me in their snowmen and I've heard their screams and laughs.
You've spied me splashing colors in a rainbow way up high,
And watched me join with others forming cloud-shapes in the sky.

I am just a tiny drop of water, yes it's true,
But though I may be tiny, you just watch what I can do.

I've glistened in the morning dew on fragile spider webs
And drenched the earth in thunderstorms that woke men from their beds.

I floated there with Noah's ark as rain poured down for weeks;
I've moved in gleaming glaciers as they molded mountain peaks.
And once I was a teardrop in a brand new father's eye
The very first time that he heard his baby daughter cry.

I am just a tiny drop of water, yes it's true,
But though I may be tiny, you just watch what I can do.
