April Showers

"April Showers" is a popular song with music written by Louis Silvers and lyrics by B. G. De Sylva. First published in 1921, it is one of many popular songs whose lyrics use a "Bluebird of happiness" as a symbol of cheer. ("So keep on looking for a bluebird, and waiting for his song.") The song was introduced in the 1921 Broadway musical Bombo, where it was performed by Al Jolson. It became a well-known Jolson trademark: the first of his several recordings of the song was on Columbia Records in October 1921. It has also been recorded by many other artists. The song is performed by Mae Questel in the 1951 animated Famous Studios cartoon Audrey the Rainmaker.

April Showers

Though April showers may come your way,

They bring the flowers,

That bloom in May.

So if it's raining, 

Have no regret,

Because, because it isn't raining rain you know,

It's the raining violets.

And where you see clouds,

Way upon the hill,

You soon will see crowds of daffodils.

So keep on looking for the bluebird,

And listening for his song,

Whenever April showers come along.
