April Showers

  • Life is not a highway strewn with flowers
    Still it holds a goodly share of bliss
    When the sun gives way to April showers
    Here is the point you should never miss

    Though April showers may come your way
    They bring the flowers that bloom in May
    So if it's raining have no regrets
    Because it isn't raining rain you know, it's raining violets
    And where you see clouds upon the hills
    You soon will see crowds of daffodils
    So keep on looking for a blue bird
    And list'ning for his song
    Whenever April showers come along

    And where you see clouds upon the hills
    You soon will see crowds of daffodils
    So keep on looking for a blue bird
    And list'ning for his song
    Whenever April showers come along Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
