What makes rain? What makes rain?
You want to find out what makes rainfall,
Find out what makes rain.
(repeat)

Air can be so cold, air can be so warm,
When both combine together rainy skies are born.
(You want to find out what makes rainfall,
Find out what makes rain.)
Colder air will sink, warmer air will rise,
Taking water vapor up into the skies,
(You want to find out what makes rainfall,
You want to find out what makes rain.)

The vapor cools, and clouds become the rule,
The droplets freeze to ice and snow, precipitation's fuel.

CHORUS:
What makes rain? What makes rain?
You want to find out what makes rainfall,
Find out what makes rain.

Have you ever heard? Did you ever know?
Most every little drop of rain starts out as snow.
(You want to find out what makes rainfall,
Find out what makes rain.)
You want to hear some more but you think you've heard it all.
The flakes of snow grow heavy and they start to fall.
(You want to find out what makes rainfall,
Find out what makes rain.)
The snow falls down, but before it hits the ground,
Warmer air will melt it back to raindrops all around.

(chorus)

Evaporation, condensation, precipitation.
