Cast of "My Fair Lady"'s, "The Rain In Spain"
The Lyrics:
Eliza Doolittle (responding to Professor Henry Higgins' question as to where the rain stays mainly on the plain): In Spain! In Spain!
Eliza, Henry and Colonel Pickering: The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain! The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
Henry: In Hartford, Hereford, and Hampshire ...?
Eliza: "Hurricanes hardly happen.
The 1957 Alan Jay Lerner's Broadway musical, "My Fair Lady" has many shoutouts to certain geographic locations. Taking place in the late 19th century England, where Eliza Doolittle is being taught by Professor Henry Higgins to be a "proper" lady, many of the locales are in Europe. ("My Fair Lady" is based on George Bernard Shaw's play, "Pygmalian"). Eliza learns well and this song, "The Rain In Spain" takes place when Eliza finally speaks in the "proper" English tongue. Besides Spain, we have shoutouts to lands in the English countryside of Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire (where hurricanes hardly happen).
