"Isn't This a Lovely Day?" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin for the 1935 film Top Hat, where it was introduced by Fred Astaire in the scene where his and Ginger Rogers' characters are caught in a gazebo during a rainstorm. The lyric is a perfect example of a song which turns a bad situation into a love song, a common style for Irving Berlin, as in I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm and Let's Have Another Cup of Coffee.
LYRICS: Isn't this a lovely day To be caught in the rain? You were going on your way Now you've got to remain
Just as you were going, leaving me all at sea The clouds broke, they broke and oh! What a break for me
I can see the sun up high Tho' we're caught in the storm I can see where you and i Could be cozy and warm
Let the rain pitter patter But it really doesn't matter If the skies are gray Long as i can be with you it's a lovely day
