Letter R Song Lyrics

R is for rain – it falls from the sky
R is for roof – it keeps you nice and dry

R is for rainbow – its colors are so bright
R is for rice – we’re eating it tonight!

R is for road – a place to drive your car
R is for railway – it can take you near or far

R is for red – the color of a rose
R is for rabbit – look how fast it goes!

R is for ring – so beautiful and round
R is for rattle – it makes a funny sound

R is for rat – it is quick and it is cunning
R is for race. Ready? Let’s start running!
