Poor Professor Higgins!
Poor Professor Higgins!
Night and day
He slaves away!
Oh, poor Professor Higgins!
All day long
On his feet;
Up and down until he's numb;
Doesn't rest;
Doesn't eat;
Doesn't touch a crumb!
Poor Professor Higgins!
Poor Professor Higgins!
On he plods
Against all odds;
Oh, poor Professor Higgins!
Nine p.m.
Ten p.m.
On through midnight ev'ry night.
One a.m.
Two a.m.
Three...!
Quit, Professor Higgins!
Quit, Professor Higgins!
Hear our plea
Or payday we
Will quit, Professor Higgins!
Ay not I,
O not Ow,
Pounding pounding in our brain.
Ay not I,
O not Ow,
Don't say "Rine," say "Rain"

The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!

By George, she's got it!
By George, she's got it!
Now, once again where does it rain?

On the plain! On the plain!

And where's that soggy plain?

In Spain! In Spain!

The three
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!

In Hartford, Hereford, and Hampshire...?

Hurricanes hardly happen.
How kind of you to let me come!

Now once again, where does it rain?

On the plain! On the plain!

And where's that blasted plain?

In Spain! In Spain!

The three
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
