Pennies From Heaven
Bing Crosby Lyrics


A long time ago, a million years BC
The best things in life were absolutely free
But no one appreciated a sky that was always blue
And no one congratulated a moon that was always new

So it was planned that they would vanish now and then
And you must pay before you get them back again
That's what storms were made for
And you shouldn't be afraid for
Every time it rains it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven

You'll find your fortune falling 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

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

A long time ago
A million years BC
The best things in life
Were absolutely free
But no one appreciated
A sky that was always blue
And no one congratulated
A moon that was always new
So it was planned that they would vanish now and them
And you must pay before you get them back again
That's what storms were made for
And you shouldn't be afraid for
Every time it rains it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven
You'll find yor fortune falling
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

A long time ago
A million years BC
The best things in life
Were absolutely free

But no one appreciated
A sky that was always blue
And no one congratulated
A moon that was always new

So it was planned that they would vanish now & them
And you must pay before you get them back again
That’s what storms were made for
And you shouldn’t be afraid for

Every time it rains, it rains
Don’t you know each cloud contains

You’ll find your fortune falling
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

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

My father was born during the great depression. He used to play this song with his saxophone and I never knew what it was called until today almost 2 years after he passed on.

What a special voice he had. A gift from heaven.

@Wodger Dog I went to the article you mentioned, (2017) Irish Times. Thanks so much for spreading the word about Bing & getting his history corrected. He so deserves the truth to be told & the records set straight. What an absolute giant he was & still is! Still #1 in many categories. That he is regularly forgotten in discussions of film & music is not only sad, but alarming! How do you leave all his record breaking stats out of any discussion?! We were so lucky to have been blessed with his talents.

@Josh N Bing said he regretted being too strict and one of his son's said that Gary's book is the same old things everyone says about Bing. He was too busy to spend time with his family and it was far too broken by the time he wanted to fix things. It's very unfortunate that his first family went through so much emotional pain. Bing screwed up, but he isn't the monster the media makes him out to be. It just goes to show that the media has always been a big mess of lies even seven decades ago.
