Uke Origins: I'll Never Let You Cry (Mitchell/Pollack) (9) Origins: Stand in the rain 22 Mar 09

Hi there people,

Here in New Zealand there is a little song that was sung a lot back in the 1950s and 1960s as a party singalong number. Versions go something like this:

The bubbles in my beer keep haunting me,
Every time I have a drink I'm happy as can be,
In memory of the days,
When we were on a spree,
Honey, won't you have a drink with me.


I'll never let you stand in the rain,
I'll always want you to kiss kiss me again,
And when you do,
I want you to know,
That I'll never let you go.

[Sometimes the first line of the chorus is "I'll never let you stand out in the rain"].

Have versions of this ever been heard elsewhere on the planet? Some people reckon the chorus was a popular song on the radio in the 1940s, but I can't seem to find anything through google etc.
