Lyrics

It is not raining rain to me,
it's raining daffodils,
In ev'ry dimpled drop I see
Wild flowers on the hills.
The clouds of grey engulf the day
And overwhelm the town;
It is not raining rain to me,
It's raining roses down.
It is not raining rain to me,
But fields of clover bloom,
Where any buccaneering bee
Can find a bed room.
It is not raining rain to me,
It's raining daffodils,
In every dimpled drop I see
Wild flowers on the hills.
A health unto the happy
A fig for him who frets!
It is not raining rain to me,
it's raining violets!
