About your song (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.):

The song was initially written in French in the 1990s for Carmen Campagne, a children's performer who was very popular in Canada, and known as the "Quebec's Daycare Diva"! It's a tongue-and-cheek hurting country flavoured tune about lost love and yearning for the one in your heart. The English version of this song is featured on the book with music: It’s Raining Cats and Dogs (The Secret Mountain).

What you hope children & families will get from this song:

That the song will bring parents and children together so that they can have a bit of fun singing along. Hopefully, they'll dare themselves to imitate Thelma or Bozo, and end up laughing those blues away!
