Subject: song title/artist

anyone know the name or artist of the following. It was heard years ago on the Captain Kangaroo TV children's show

Oh you've got to have rain every now and then
to make the whole world shine
so every day will turn out fine

If we didn't have rain
then we wouldn't have flowers
If we didn't have rain
etc etc etc
there'd be no babbling brook
there'd be no fist to catch on the end of a hook

all day we'd face the barren waste
without a bite to eat
etc
etc

Please mail answers to: chasmw@aol.com

Hi. Anyone know the title/artist for this song that was heard on the old children's show Captian Kangaroo?

So, you've got to have rain every now and then

If we didn't have rain then we would'nt have etc.

Just ask the question once, and if anyone knows the answer, they'll post it here!
I vaguely remember the song from my KK days, but have no info on it.

From: Jim Dixon

GOTTA HAVE RAIN
Words and music by Max Bygraves, 1958
Sung by Max Bygraves in the film "A Cry from the Streets" 1958
As recorded by Eydie Gorme

1. If you didn't have rain
Then you couldn't have flowers
You couldn't have flowers
If you didn't have showers
Nowhere to swim
There'd be no babbling brook
There'd be no fish to catch
On the end of a hook

2. You couldn't wash your hands and face
You'd be as black as coal
All day you'd face the barren waste
Looking for a water hose
So you gotta have rain
Every now and then
To make the whole world shine
Then every day will turn out fine

3. Okay kids, let's see now
Oh, if you didn't have rain
You wouldn't have (ice cream!)
If you didn't have rain
You wouldn't have (a bath!)
If you didn't have rain
Then you couldn't have (fishes!)
And you couldn't have (a swim!)
If you didn't have rain

4. You'd be so awfully dirty
You'd be as black as ink
All day you'd face the barren waste
Looking for a nice cool drink
So you gotta have rain
Every now and then
To make the whole world shine
Then every day will turn out fine

REPEAT 1 & 4

I can't believe this; I remember this song from Cap Kang from like 1962 and it has been running around in my head since then (I am 57 now). It just flashed in my memory again and so just by chance, I googled it.
