Another variation[edit]

..."He bumped his head at the foot of the bed"...

This is how I was taught it as a child. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.8.119.183 (talk) 23:45, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Variation[edit]

"Its raining, its pouring, the old man is snoring He fell out of bed and bumped his head And couldn't get up in the mornin'" Is the way I have always heard it sung until recently when I heard "He bumped his head, and went to bed" in one of my daughter's children's songs cds.

Third variation[edit]

It's raining, it's pouring
The old man is snoring
He bumped his head and broke his bed
And couldn't get up in the morning

Fourth "macabre" variation[edit]

It's raining, it's pouring
The old man is snoring
He bumped his head; now he's dead
And won't get up in the morning — Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.98.201.240 (talk) 14:51, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

I used to think this was how it always went until I heard the one in the article. Shouldn't we list this one as a variation? I don't want to do it myself because Wikipedia is crazy about citations XD. JustPotteringAround (talk) 00:12, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Fifth variation[edit]

It's raining, it's pouring
The old man is snoring
He bumped his head and peed the bed
And couldn't get up in the morning
