Don't Rain on My Parade from Funny Girl is featured in Frenemies, the ninth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Santana, as a part of her audition for the part of the understudy of Fanny Brice in Funny Girl.

Rupert Campion calls to the stage the second last auditionee, Santana Lopez, which makes Rachel incredulously ask him to repeat the name. Santana suddenly shows up as Rachel watches her, shocked, start singing the song. During the performance, Santana makes some very similar gestures to that Rachel made during her performance at Sectionals years ago. While Rupert watches Santana amazed, Rachel looks very jealous and confused.

Lyrics

Santana:
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. Arnstein
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

  • Rachel sang this song twice before, first in Sectionals and later in Choke; however, only the first performance was released.
  • Some of the choreogrophy from Rachel's version of Don't Rain On My Parade was re-used in this version of the performance.
  • This is the second released Season One song to be performed again by a different singer in Season Five. The first one was I'll Stand By You, originally sung by Finn, while Mercedes performed it in The Quarterback.
