See this "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" song
The itsy-bitsy spider Climbed up the water spout Down came the rain And washed the spider out Out came the sun And dried up all the rain And the itsy-bitsy spider Climbed up the spout again
Why do they say "Down came the rain" instead of "the rain came down"?
Why "Out came the sun" instead of "the sun came out"?
I couldn't find any grammar books mentioning this.
Could we say "Very fast ran he" instead of "he ran very fast"?
and, When can we use adverbs as subjects of sentences?
