Singin’ in the Rain

April is a wet month in my city, so I was appropriately thrilled to see Tim Hopgood’s stunningly illustrated picture book version of Singing in the Rain show up on my desk this week. And now I can’t recall why I’ve never sung this on a showery spring storytime day before.

There are additional lyrics, and some beautifully advanced arrangements out there, but for my purposes, two chords will do nicely. I’ve borrowed this version from the Vancouver Ukulele Circle Songbook. It also sounds nice if you play E7 and A.

Singin’ in the Rain is by Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown, written around 1929.

Singin’ in the Rain
C7   F

I'm singin' in the rain, just singin' in the rain

What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again

I'm laughing at clouds so dark up above

The sun's in my heart and I'm ready for love

Let the stormy clouds chase, everyone from this place

Come on with the rain, I've a smile on my face

I walk down the lane with a happy refrain

Just singin' and singin' in the rain
