"Rainy Day Song" is a Sesame Street song about the importance of rain. In the chorus, the singer notes that it's a rainy day and she can't go out and play, and wonders what rain is good for. During the verses, the singer lists all the ways we use water in our daily lives, such as for drinking, doing laundry, and brushing teeth.
