It's Raining, It's Pouring

It's raining, it's pouring,
The old man is snoring,
He went to bed
With a brick on his head
And couldn't get up in the morning.

Why on earth have I carried this bit of doggerel around in my head for over 60 years without knowing what it means? Talk about clutter! Can't wait for the BBC to start a Brain Makeover series.

I learned it as "He went to bed with a bump on his head"
