Lyrics: Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and doesn't know where to find them. Leave them alone and they'll come home wagging their tails behind them. Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day.
Comments: Brand new arrangement that I wrote, so I haven't heard anyone sing it yet. I was inspired by a video of nursery rhymes that my daughter likes to watch, and I thought this melody (in the tenor line throughout) would produce some interesting harmonies. Hopefully someone will upload a video or multitrack of this later? The Rain, Rain part is strictly an add-on that I thought fit well, but can also be sung on its own. Also, like most 5 parters, this tag also works with just the top 4 alone. However if you try it that way, I recommend that the bass sings a middle B on "their" (octave higher than written) and the same middle B on the first pitch of "tails" (same as the 5th part) for a much tighter and amusing voicing. Hope you enjoy it!
