Pennies From Heaven lyrics

Arthur johnston / johnny burke

Oh every time it rains
It rains pennies from heaven
Dont you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven
Youll find your fortune
Fallin all over town
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down
Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers
It you want the things you love
You must have showers
So when you hear it thunder
Dont run under a tree
Therell be pennies from heaven
For you and me

The world was bright when you loved me
Sweet was the touch of your lips
The world went dark when you left me
And then there came a total eclipse
Nobody knows how cruel fate can be
How close together love and hate can be
Goodbye, just clean the slate for me
Thats life I guess
