This is with Frank Ferrera's Hawaiian Trio (1929).   This is more of an instrumental with just the steel guitar doing most of the work and a ukulele doing backup.  This is the same cut that Cliff Edwards sang in the "Hollywood Revue of the 1929".  It seems very strange to hear it played with a steel guitar.  This is probably the only time that this tune was ever played with a steel guitar!  Sometimes I wonder what were they thinking when they did that?  Or were they thinking at all.  However, Annette was a real tropper.  She sang it with all her heart.  She doesn't have much time though because if you notice in all these Frank Ferrera tunes, he always plays his steel guitar for about one minute into the song which leaves Annette only a minute to get the lyrics in and then Frank finishes with another one minute second chorus.  These records only accomodate 3 minutes per song so if Annette is to get anything in at all she has to do it in the second minute.

Singing In The Rain

I'm singing in the rain
just singing in the rain
what a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
so dark up above
the suns in my heart
and ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
every one from the place
Come on with the rain
I've got a smile on my face
I'll walked down the lane
with a happy refrain
and singing
just singing in the rain
