Sam Harris performs "Don't Rain On My Parade" from the Barbra Streisand movie musical, Funny Girl.

"Don't Rain On My Parade" is a popular song from the 1964 musical Funny Girl. It was also featured in the 1968 movie version of the musical. The song was written by Bob Merrill and Jule Styne. Both the movie and stage versions feature Barbra Streisand performing the song. It has since become one of her signature tunes. Streisand has sung this song live on many occasions, including during her highly successful comeback tour Barbra Streisand: The Concert Tour (1993-1994), Timeless Live In Concert Tour (1999-2000) and the recent Streisand: The Tour (2006-2007). The instrumental of this song can be heard during the Overture of the stage show, the film and on Streisand's 2006-2007 Tour.

There is a reprise version of this song with alternate lyrics which served as the finale for the stage show. This number was cut from the film. Streisand sang this version live for the first time since her run in the original Broadway production as an encore during her [[Streisand: The Tour 2006/07 Tour. The song was also featured on an episode of Glee in season 1.

The song was covered by many artists, among the notable ones are Bobby Darin in 1966, by Japan in 1978 and by Only Men Aloud! in 2008. The Darin version was used in the film American Beauty and the trailer for Catch Me If You Can. Robin Williams also sang this song while dressed as Streisand during a scene from Mrs. Doubtfire. LaToya London sang the song on the third season of American Idol. Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland also sang this song live. Lois Griffin sang parts of this song on Family Guy. It was also used in the BBC sitcom Beautiful People. The song was performed by Connie and Carla (Toni Collette and Nia Vardalos) in the movie Connie and Carla. It was also performed by Lea Michele in the 2009 fall finale of the Fox TV show Glee in the episode "Sectionals" and during the 2010 "Tony Awards" on June 13, 2010. Tony Award Winner Idina Menzel also sings this song in the Kennedy Honors concert dedicated for original singer Barbra Streisand. The Dorothys on Over the Rainbow, the tv show in which Andrew Lloyd Webber chooses a Dorothy for the west end production, also sing this song as a group number. Mireille Mathieu sang this song on her 2006 Films and Shows album.

DON'T RAIN ON MY PARADE
Jule Styne (composer) Bob Merrill (lyricist)

LYRICS:

Dont tell me not to live,
Just sit and putter,
Lifes candy and the suns
A ball of butter.
Dont bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade.
Dont tell me not to fly--
Ive simply got to.
If someone takes a spill,
Its me and not you.
Who told you you're allowed
To rain on my parade!
Ill march my band out,
Ill beat my drum,
And if Im fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir.
At least I didnt fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didnt make it!
But whether Im the rose
Of sheer perfection,
Or freckle on the nose
Of lifes complexion,
The cinder or the shiny apple of its eye,
I gotta fly once,
I gotta try once,
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, love is juicy,
Juicy, and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!
Get ready for me, love,
cause Im a comer,
I simply gotta march,
My hearts a drummer.
Dont bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade!

Im gonna live and live now,
Get what I want--i know how,
One roll for the whole shebang,
One throw, that bell will go clang,
Eye on the target--and wham--
One shot, one gun shot, and bam--
Hey, mister arnstein, here I am!
Ill march my band out,
I will beat my drum,
And if Im fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir,
At least I didnt fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didnt make it.
Get ready for me, love,
cause Im a comer,
I simply gotta march,
My hearts a drummer.
Nobody, no, nobody
Is gonna rain on my parade!
