1. Oh! the night was dark and dreary,
The air was full of sleet,
The old mad stood out in the storm,
his shoes were full of feet

Oh! it ain't gonna rain no ,o' no mo',
it ain't gonna rain no mo',
But how in the world can the old folks tell,
It ain't gonna rain no mo'.

2. Oh! Mosquito he fly high,
Mosquito he fly low,
If old man 'Skeeta light on me,
he ain't gonna fly no mo'.
