The Rain Song JIM
You really mean that you can bring rain?

LIZZIE
He talks too fast—he can’t bring anything!

JIM
I asked him. How would you bring it, Starbuck?

STARBUCK
How?

Sodium chloride, pitch it up high!
Pitch it up high, right up to the clouds!
Electrify the cold front!
Neutralize the warm front!
Magnetize occlusions in the sky!

LIZZIE
In other words, bunk!

STARBUCK
Lady, you’re right! Do you know why it sounds like bunk? Because it is bunk!
Bunk and hokey-pokey. And I tell you, I’d be ashamed to use any of those methods!

LIZZIE
Oh, well, what methods would you use?

STARBUCK
My method’s like my name.
It’s all my very own.

You wanna hear my deal?
You only need a hundred dollars in advance,
In twenty-four hours, you’ll have rain.

JIM
You mean it? Real rain?

STARBUCK
Real rain!

Rain is rain, brother.
It comes from the sky.
A wetness known as water.
Aqua pura!

Mammals drink from it.
Fish swim around in it.
Little boys wade in it.
Birds flap their wings
And sing a song like sunrise!
Water!
I recommend it!

Cumulo!
Cumulo nimbo!

Ahaaa!

Now, you ask me the way I do it.
Well, I do it the way I please.
I got forty-‘leven different methods,
But I might use one of these.

I might take this stick, this hickory stick
And then I pick it up and pitch it up high!

JIM
Hot damn!

STARBUCK
And then I shout like hell till I scare the hail
Right down from outta the sky!

Then the rain comes!
Then the rain comes!
Then the rain comes!

It’s gonna rain all through the mornin’.
It’s gonna rain all through the night.
It’s gonna rain all day tomorrow,
And Lord God-A-mighty,
Now won’t that be a sight!

There’s cotton out there that’ll grow!
There’s rivers that’ll overflow!
There’s dyin’ cattle that’ll rise right up and live!

It’s gonna rain a month of Sundays!
And a hundred dollars is all
That you gotta give!

There’s a big rain a-comin’!
There’s a big rain a-comin’!
Ohhh!

JIM & SNOOKIE
There’s a big rain a-comin’!
There’s a big rain a-comin’!
Rain!

STARBUCK
Well I’m talkin’ about a good Old Testament, Wade-in-the-Water and Shoutin’ Glory Rain!

TOWNSPEOPLE
There’s a big rain a-comin’!
There’s a big rain a-comin’!
Rain…

STARBUCK
Well, I’m talkin’ about a Take Your Clothes Off, Jump-in-the-Cowtank,
Floatin’ like a Rowboat Rain!

TOWNSPEOPLE
There’s a big rain a-comin’!

TOWNSPEOPLE
There’s a big rain a-comin’! Rain!

STARBUCK
Well, I’m talkin’ about a Catch that Catfish, Have a little Fish-Fry, Plenty of Chow-Chow Rain!

TOWNSPEOPLE
There’s a big rain a-comin’!
There’s a big rain a-comin’!
Rain!

STARBUCK
Well, I’m talkin’ about a Once-in-a-Lifetime, Tell-Your-Children, Write-it-in-the-Bible—

TOWNSPEOPLE
Big rain!

STARBUCK
Never forget it—Making-up-Stories—Singin’-and-Dancin’—Friends and Neighbors!

TOWNSPEOPLE
A big rain!

STARBUCK
Gimme your hand, Sister! Gimme your hand, Brother!

TOWNSPEOPLE
Big rain!

And Lord God A-mighty
Now won’t that be a sight!

TOWNSPEOPLE & STARBUCK
It’s gonna rain
A month of Sundays!

TOWNSPEOPLE (& STARBUCK)
