This song starts off with a violin solo  that sets somewhat of a country western tempo.  The lyrics are not that long or complicated.     In contrast to" I like what you like" where she lets Joe Venuti start with a fast paced violin solo, Annette Starts off singing right from the start but if you listen closely you can hear Joe Venuti ever present in the background on every note.  He comes on much stronger in the second chorus but melds well with the guitarist who leads in the second chorus.    Listen closely towards the end where Annette starts whispering the words to  the second chorus.  Each musician plays ever so softly.  This early tune is what would become one of her signature tunes.  Good instrumentals and melodic little love song.  This is the best that music can become.  This was before Annette started to become famous.  It was just a bunch of musicians sitting down with Annette to play some real music.  In such a short song there is so much going on!  The layers are deep in this one!  Each musician is taking a strong lead in this trio.  Annette does not lead the musician they form triangle with each contributing equally.

It was only a Sun Shower


My lonesome clock goes tick, tick tock
all through the day
 when you're away
I'm blue, so blue
We quarrel dear
but don't you fear I'll soon return
You know you'll yearn
I know you're yearning too
Honey don't you cry, clouds are rolling by
the rainbow is in the sky
It was only a sun shower

In the shelter up above sunny skies above
We will live and love
It was only a sun shower
Now why do we complain
We should be cheerful and gay
Tommorrow's sun will shine again
Although its cloudy today
Love finds a way
So Honey don't be blue
we'll go smiling through
forever
It was only a sun shower
sweetheart

Honey don't you cry, clouds are rolling by
the rainbow is in the sky
It was only a sun shower

In the shelter up above sunny skies above
We will live and love
It was only a sun shower
Now why do we complain
We should be cheerful and gay
Tommorrow's sun will shine again
Although its cloudy today
Love finds a way
So Honey don't be blue
we'll go smiling through
forever
It was only a sun shower
sweetheart

That's All!
