Frank Sinatra, and that Basie Beat: “Pennies from Heaven”

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

The Youtube publication did not identify the band, but if that isn’t the Count Basie organization, my name is Gordon Jenkins!
 

Pennies from Heaven (1936)
Music by Arthur Johnston
Words by Johnny Burke

Every time it rains, it rains,
Pennies from heaven,
Don't you know each cloud contains,
Pennies from heaven.

You'll find your fortune fallin,’
All over town,
Be sure that your umbrella
Is upside down.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers,
If you want the things you love,
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder,
Don't run under a tree,
There'll be pennies from heaven,
For you and me.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers,
If you want the things you love,
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder,
Don't run under a tree,
There'll be pennies from heaven,
For you and me.
