Don't Rain on My Parade from Funny Girl is featured in Sectionals, the thirteenth episode of Season One. It is sung by Rachel Berry and was originally performed by her idol, Barbra Streisand.

After Jane's Academy steals "And I am telling you", they are forced to come up with another setlist quick. With Mercedes deflecting the solo to Rachel.

It is the necessary ballad that New Directions chooses to sing at Sectionals, after Jane Addams Academy blindsides them.

Rachel:
Don't tell me not to live
Just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade

Don't tell me not to fly
I've simply got to
If someone takes a spill
It's me and not you
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade

I'll march my band out
I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it

But whether I'm the rose of sheer perfection
A freckle on the nose of life's complexion
A cinder on the shiny apple of his eye
I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir
Ooh, life is juicy
Juicy, and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir

Get ready for me, love, cause I'm a comer
I simply gotta march
My heart's a drummer
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade

I'm 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, Mr. Arnstien
Here I am!

I'll march my band out
I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it
Get ready for me, love, 'cause I'm a comer
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer
Nobody, no, nobody
Is gonna rain on my parade!

Trivia

  • Don't Rain on My parade is Rachel's go to song. Because of her Idol Barbra Streisand.
  • This is the first song in the New Directions first competition setlist and Sectionals setlist. It is then followed by You Can't Always Get What You Want and Somebody to Love, the latter performed off screen.
  • Rachel sang it as her audition to get into NYADA in Choke.
  • She also sang it as her audition for the Archies in the second issue of Archie Meets Glee.
  • Rachel has been working on performing this song ever since she was four, though in Choke she says she has been singing it since she was two, which could have been her exaggerating.
  • Lea also sang this song at the 64th Tony Awards in 2010.
  • The instrumental version of the song can be briefly heard in the opening scenes of Hell-O.
  • Lea Michele also sang this song at the Glee Live tour, although it was cut from the setlist after May 28, 2011, a week after the tour began, as Lea found the song too difficult to perform each night. The song was also included in Glee: The 3D Concert Movie and the Soundtrack of the movie.

Errors

  • Puck goes to the stage, and then when Rachel is done singing, you can see Puck going to the stage again.
  • Rachel is seen walking up the stage stairs. A few seconds later, she's seen striding to the stairs.
  • Shortly after Rachel moves to the stage, a bandage can be seen on the side of her right leg, just below the knee. In the very next shot a few seconds later, the bandage is gone.
  • During the opening lines, a bandage is visible on Rachel's right wrist. This is hiding a tattoo that says "I Believe."
