Lyrics

"Love is a Song"

Love is a song that never ends.
Life may be swift and fleeting.
Hope may die yet love's beautiful music
Comes each day like the dawn.

Love is a song that never ends.
One simple theme repeating.
Like the voice of a heavenly choir
Love's sweet music flows on.

"Little April Shower"

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around.

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound.

Drip, drip, drop
When the sky is cloudy
Your pretty music
Can brighten the day.

Drip, drip, drop
When the sun says howdy
You say goodbye right away.

Drip, drip drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
Ev'rywhere that you fall.

Drip, drip drop
Little April shower
I'm getting wet
And I don't care at all.

Drip, drop, drip, drop
I'll never be afraid
Of a good little
Gay little
April serenade.
