Look to the Rainbow (E.Y. Harburg, Burton Lane) On the day I was born, Said my father, said he I've an elegant legacy waiting for ye. Tis a rhyme for your lips And a song for your heart To sing it whenever the world falls apart cho: Look, look, look to the rainbow Follow it over the hill and stream Look, look, look to the rainbow Follow the fellow who follows a dream 'Twas a sumptuous gift To bequeath to a child Oh, the lure of that song kept me feet running wild For you never grow old And you never stand still With whippoorwills singing beyond the next hill. So I pondered (?) my heart And I roamed the world free To the east with the lark To the west with the sea And I searched all the earth And I scanned all the skies But I found it at last in my own true love's eye (from the Musical, "Finian's Rainbow," 1946) XX oct00
