Do You Ever Feel Sad?
Do you ever feel sad on a rainy day
the gray old clouds just feel that way.
The sun doesn’t shine, the sky is dark
the birds aren’t singing, the dogs don’t bark.
The flowers are droopy, look a little beat
not bright and shiny, nice and neat.
Your heart feels heavy, a little down
not much of a smile, almost a frown.
But there’s always hope, the sun will shine
the sky will clear, just a matter of time.
don’t feel blue as the drops fall down
they make a promise as they hit the ground –
the clouds will part, the sky turn blue
things will be fresh to start anew.
