April Showers Sheet Music Page 3
Life is not a highway when strewn skies with flowers,
I have learned to smile are gloomy,
Still it holds a good - ly share of bliss,
Smile although my heart's about to break,
When the sun gives way to April showers,
When I know that trouble's coming to me,
April Showers Sheet Music Page 4
Heres the point that you should never miss
Here's the happy attitude I take
Refrain Slow with expression
Though April showers may come your way, They ring the flowers
that bloom in May So if it raining, have no re - grets
Because it isn't raining rain you know-, It's raining violets, -
April Showers Sheet Music Page 5
And where you see clouds upon the hills) You soon will
see crowds of daffodils, So keep on look-ing for a
blue bird And listning for his song, Whenever April
showers come along. Though April -long.

Bombo is a Broadway musical with a book and lyrics by Harold R. Atteridge and music by Sigmund Romberg.
Produced by Lee Shubert and J. J. Shubert, the Broadway production, staged by J. C. Huffman, opened on October 6, 1921 at the Jolson Theatre, where it ran for 219 performances. The cast included Al Jolson and Janet Adair.
The musical has a thin story designed to showcase Al Jolson, who was at the height of his popularity. Songs were added by several composers during the run of the show so that, by the end of the run, there were more songs by composers other than Romberg than by him. The success of the musical on Broadway led to a national tour.
