Pennies from Heaven

A long time ago
A million years BC
The best things in life
Were absolutely free.

But no one appreciated
A sky that was always blue.
And no one congratulated
A moon that was always new.

So it was planned that they would vanish now and them
And you must pay before you get them back again.
That's what storms were made for
And you shouldn't be afraid for...

Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven.
Don't you know each cloud contains pennies from heaven.
You'll find your fortune falling
All over town.
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down.

Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers.
If you want the things you love
You must have showers.
So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree.
There'll be pennies from heaven for you and me.


Lyrics by Johnny Burke, music by Arthur Johnston
