Ev'ry time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Don'tcha know each cloud contains pennies from heaven?
(You'll find your fortune fallin' 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

(Ev'ry time it rains, it rains)â?¦Pennies from heaven
(Don'tcha know each cloud contains)â?¦Pennies from heaven?
(You'll find you fortune fallin') 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 for me
