Butterflies In The Rain

(Sherman Myers / Erell Reaves)

Ray Noble and His Orchestra

When the rain is pattering helter skelter
And the butterflies are caught out in the rain
Leafy hollyhocks would murmur come and shelter
Until the rainbow shines again

In the heart of every roses a heaven
From the pitter patter pitter pat refrain
There's protection from the showers
From the sympathetic flowers
For the butterflies in the rain
