WATCHING THE CLOUDS ROLL BY From the Broadway Show "Animal Crackers" (1928) (Bert Kalmar / Harry Ruby) Bernice Ackerman & Milton Watson (Broadway Production) - 1928 MILTON: Nearly ev'ry new day for me was a blue day My life was just one blue Monday How the days would drag on, if they had no tag on I couldn't tell which was Sunday I kept my eyes on the horizon But only clouds were there Nothing could move them or improve them Nobody seemed to care Suddenly you stepped in And happiness crept in And ev'rything changed in one day Now you and I can clear the sky Looking for the sun Two loving hearts are better than one We'll have lots of fun Watching the clouds roll by Cares don't mean a thing Whether it's Winter, whether it's Spring While two hearts can sing Watching the clouds roll by We'll be as near as love birds As any two And, dear, if we're like love birds What are a few April showers When it's dark or fair What does it matter, what do we care If we both are there Watching the clouds roll by BERNICE: Life for me was boredom, each hour was more dumb Than ev'ry one that preceded Time would slowly tick off, I wanted to kick off The hours could not be speeded I counted all days, Spring and Fall days Just like so many sheep Even the night through, I'd go right through Counting them in my sleep Suddenly I woke up And all the clouds broke up For you were all that I needed My clouds I find are silver lined Looking for the sun Two loving hearts are better than one We'll have lots of fun Watching the clouds roll by Cares don't mean a thing Whether it's Winter, whether it's Spring While two hearts can sing Watching the clouds roll by We'll be as near as love birds As any two And, dear, if we're like love birds What are a few April showers When it's dark or fair What does it matter, what do we care If we both are there Watching the clouds roll by (Contributed by Mel - November 2009)
