April skies are in your eyes, but darling, don't be blue

Don't cry, oh honey please don't be that way.

Clouds in the sky should never make you feel that way

The rain will bring the violets of May

Tears are in vain, so honey please don't be that way

As long as we see it through, you'll have me, I'll have you

Sweetheart, tomorrow is another day

Don't break my heart, oh honey, please don't be that way

 

Don't cry, oh honey please don't be that way

Clouds in the sky should never make you feel that way

The rain will bring the violets of May

Tears in vain, so honey please don't be that way

As long as we will see it through

You'll have me and I'll have you

Sweetheart, tomorrow is another day

Don't break my heart, ah honey, please don't be that way,

Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry.
