I remember hearing this when I was quite young, as one of the verses of
a childrens' song called "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More".  I'm 54 now.

A quick web search found it attributed (in addition to Milligan) to
"traditional", "anon", and to someone named Holly Sunley.  I don't know
who Holly Sunley is, but the look of the web page where I found it makes
me suspect she is contemporary, and therefore the attribution is wrong.
