This jazzy, silly tune is from member Sarah Gardner.
I wrote It’s Raining Cats & Dogs after seeing a little girl’s confusion when her grandma said that “it was raining cats & dogs”. The little girl knew I loved frogs and asked if the frogs minded cats and dogs falling on them. We decided that they would be very upset and try to do something about it. The reason I use it a lot in performance is because the kids love yelling out the frogs are mad and making mad frog faces. Its a way to express grumpiness/anger without negative consequences. In the video the frogs work together to come up with a solution and be happy. I’d like to make it into a kids book at some point so that the story doesn’t go by quite as fast as the dixieland song.
