ROYGBIV

It's a bit cloudy this morning, and we're hoping for rain. It made me wonder if we'll see any rainbows today. Then Sadie asked if I would sing to her, the Rainbow Connection song. She likes Kermit.

I had to ask Google about the lyrics. For your enjoyment...

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
we know that it's probably magic....

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

Here's our rainbow song...
All the colors of the rainbow
Are so beautiful to see
All the colors of the rainbow
Are smiling back at me
There's red, orange, yellow
Green, blue, purple,
Red, orange, yellow
Green, blue, purple.

I love this song!! I saw your comment with your blog address on Simple Marriage. It's good to make connections with people who are marriage-minded. And I appreciate your spiritual side too. :)

Love your blog!
