about

“Umbrella” was written to honor and remember Fernando Vescia, a joyous soul and a scholarly gentleman who was Don’s father-in-law. He brought a strength, grace, charm, and laughter to his family and to the world.

lyrics

Umbrella—you stop the rain when it comes down
Umbrella—you give us shade when the sun is out
That fact is you make us feel invincible twirling round our heads above
You make us feel we can do anything—you are the umbrella of love
But when you're lost and when you're gone
It's hard to go outside, it's hard to carry on
And if a storm it starts to threat
We know you'll keep us dry; we know we won't get wet

Umbrella—just a touch and you open wide
Umbrella—you make every day just right
You know it seems like a simple thing how an umbrella can make us so strong
All we know is that where we go we want our umbrella along
Cuz if you're lost and if you're gone
It's hard to go outside, it's hard to carry on
And if a storm it starts to threat
We know you'll keep us dry; we know we won't get wet

Oh dear hearts do not forget your umbrella

Your fabric's strong so hard to tear
Our canopy up in the air
Our bumbershoot, our parasol
There's room for one, there's room for all

Just grab a hold step underneath and we'll be bold and move our feet
We'll all be sporty and unique as we accomplish every feat

Oh, umbrella
Do not forget your umbrella
