The Lyrics

In cinema, it's a common occurrence to have two characters passionately kiss while it's raining. While an effective dramaturgical device, it can become really over-dramatic and sappy. So this song is a culmination of many movies in which this tactic was used. Some films referenced are: The Notebook, Spiderman, Enchanted, Fun With Dick & Jane, Superhero Movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Cast Away, 50 First Dates, Sweet Home Alabama, and A Cinderella Story. Comment and name some more that you know.
Verse 1: Kisses are sappy when it rains
They think it’s sexy in precipitation
And though it’s used for love magnification
It’s way too sappy when it rains
It’s not as tender if they’re dry and set
Why is it much more hot if they’re wet?
It’s just so sappy when it rains

Chorus: Pour on Ryan Gosling
Pour on Spidey and Mary Jane
Pour on Tom Hanks and Hunt
Pour on Orlando the pirate

Verse 2: But that’s so sappy in the rain
I watch closely as they slow-mo lean
It swiftly turns into a mush-mush scene
It’s so damn sappy when it rains!

[Instrumental Break]
[Montage of assorted rain kissing scenes from movies]

Verse 3: The Notebook launched this trend to start
Got nuts when Spidey made-out upside down
I wonder if the get rain in their mouth
But that’s what happens when it rains
They get so sopping wet their clothes see-through
Must be better spots where they can smooch
Cuz it’s so sappy in the rain

Chorus: Pour on Adam and Drew
Pour on Hilary Duff and Chad
Pour on Reese Witherspoon
Pour on Amy Adams and Pat
Pour on Sara Paxton
Pour on Téa and Jim Carrey
Pour that sappy rain down
You can kiss that’s fine with me
As long as rain’s not there!

Outro: Cuz it’s too sappy when it rains
You’re gonna hear about this dumb procedure
I see it again I will have a seizure
It’s that damn sappy when it rains
(Pour that sappy rain down on screen)
It’s really sappy when it rains
(Pour that sappy rain down on screen)
It’s really sappy when it rains
(Pour that sappy rain down on screen)
It’s really sappy when it rains
(Pour that sappy rain down on screen)
It’s really sappy when it rains!
(Pour that sappy rain down on screen)
Pour that sappy rain down on screen
Pour that sappy rain down on screen
Pour that sappy rain down on screen
I really love it when it rains!
Pour that sappy rain down on screen
Pour that sappy rain down on screen…

Fun idea! My favorite rainy kiss is John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in THE QUIET MAN.

Knowing my luck, if I tried smooching my wife in the rain, we would nearly drown! To the parody, the movie refernces might be a bit too oblique for the average reader/listener. Blown opportunity to vary those choruses on the long fadeout, but I applaud you for not taking the easy rhyme of "crappy". That would have killed the humor.

Someone needs to film a scene where the couple kissing in the rain gets hit by lightning. And then they both say "Wow, what a kiss!" Interesting idea, fun parody!

As an avid film fan and filmmaker I enjoyed you ripping into this terrible movie cliche. The only other time I've seen this cliche parodied was at the movies when a couple is kissing (and the man is talking about bringing his dog to the vet and getting it dewormed or something where the message is "We don't want your conversations in our movies. Shut the hell up" or something to that effect).

(Artistry) I never got the "snog in the rain" trope. I vastly prefer the "snog while chaos unfolds around you" trope, much more visually engaging, IMO. As for the parody, it was pretty good, but the outro was a bit repetitive. I also didn't get a lot of the references, but that's not your bad, really. Still 555 worthy.

I personally like the rain:) I feel like I missed something here. . .I haven't seen have the movies--and it comes off as a list parody as a result. . .sorry buddy, not one of my favorites of yours
