FEBRUARY BRINGS THE RAIN
as recorded by Julie London
with The Pete King Orchestra
February brings the rain,
Breaks the Winter's icy chain,
That's the song I learned so long ago.
Little did I dream one day,
Those words I heard that yesterday
Would ever strike so very close to home.
We drank champagne to toast the brand new year,
So certain that the world was yours and mine,
But January's gone and February's here,
Here am I without a valentine.
Twenty eight long days remain,
Gone my love, the gay champagne,
February, February brings the rain!
