Music by: George Gershwin (b. Jacob Gershvin)
From the Show: A Dangerous Maid 1921 (S)
I recited once when I was small,
"Into ev'ry life some rain must fall."
I was a little child of ten
Whose days were never gloomy,
My life was filled with sunshine then,
And sorrow never knew me.
So the thought meant nothing then to me.
Older, wiser, now, I plainly see:
Some rain must fall
For one and all,
Sending all our dreams astray.
They fly away
When skies are gray,
Though all the while
We try to smile.
As the poet stated,
It is fated:
Some rain must fall.
