LET A SMILE BE YOUR UMBRELLA Sammy Fain (m) Irving Kahal (l) Sammy Wheeler (l) 1927 as recorded by Bing Crosby with Bob Scobey's 'Frisco Jazz Band February 19th 1957 Once I met a happy little bluebird, I was just as blue as I could be! In a little while, I began to smile When he sang this merry song to me; Just let a smile be your umbrella On a rainy, rainy day, And if your sweetie cries, just tell her That a smile will always pay! Whenever skies are grey, don`t worry or fret, A smile'll bring the sunshine and you`ll never get wet! So let a smile be your umbrella On a rainy, rainy day! Let a smile be your umbrella On a rainy, rainy day, And if your sweetie cries, just tell her That a smile will always pay! Whenever skies are grey, don`t worry or fret, A smile'll bring the sunshine and you`ll never get wet! So let a smile be your umbrella, Be your big umbrella On a rainy, rainy day!

In a little while, I began to smile When he sang this merry song to me; Just let a smile be your umbrella On a rainy, rainy day, And if your sweetie cries, just tell her That a smile will always pay! Whenever skies are grey, don`t worry or fret, A smile will bring the sunshine and you`ll never get wet! So let a smile be your umbrella On a rainy, rainy day! (yodelling) As I listened to that happy little bluebird, I soon learned his smart philosophy! On my window sill, He began to trill, This is what he had to say to me; Just let a smile be your umbrella On a rainy day, Just pucker up your lips and yell 'er, Great big hip hip, hip hooray! Grab all your cares and pull 'em, right out by the roots, Just wear a smile and throw away your old rubber boots! Go let a smile be your umbrella, On a rainy, rainy day! Oh, never let your friends see you wear that frown, 'Cause one by one they'll walk away and all turn you down! So let a smile be your umbrella On a rainy, rainy day!
