Lyrics: Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo...

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin',
Singin' in the rain

Dancin' in the rain
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
I'm happy again!
I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain!

I'm dancin' and singin' in the rain...

Random facts: This is Kurt Browning's most famous program, performed in his special
"You Must Remember This." Kurt's repeatedly cited this as one of the
highlights of his career, skating through simulated rainfall on a set
specially constructed to resemble the actual movie scene. The "rain"
was warm so as not to freeze Kurt, but quickly melted the ice, so that
filming had to be stopped every 30 seconds to squeegee all the excess
water off the ice. Kurt's suit also quickly became waterlogged and
heavy, making it more difficult to skate in. However, Sandra Bezic
has said that Kurt had the time of his life throughout the 10 hour
shoot.

In 2012, Kurt decided to revive this program as a live show program, a
longtime dream of his, and debuted it at the Medal Winners Open
competition in Japan, winning 2nd place and a standing ovation. This
also happened to be his first competition in six years. On the Stars
on Ice tour, he also managed to make it rain on the ice in the final
portions of the program.
