Laughter in the Rain

Neil Sedaka

Laughter in the Rain Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Strolling along country roads with my baby
It starts to rain, it begins to pour
Without an umbrella, we're soaked to the skin
I feel a shiver run up my spine
I feel the warmth of her hand in mine

[Chorus]
Oh, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oh, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside

[Verse 2]
After a while we run under a tree (after a while)
I turn to her and she kisses me
There with the beat of the rain on the leaves (there with the beat)
Softly she breathes and I close my eyes
Sharing our love under stormy skies

[Chorus]
Oh, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oh, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside

[Saxophone solo]

[Bridge]
I feel the warmth of her hand in mine

[Chorus]
Oh, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oh, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside

[Chorus]
Oh, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oh, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside
