At the end of the rainbow there's happiness And to find it how often I've tried But my life is a race, just a wild goose chase And my dreams have all been denied Why have I always been a failure What can the reason be I wonder if the world's to blame I wonder if it could be me I'm always chasing rainbows Watching clouds drifting by My schemes are just like all of my dreams Ending in the sky Some fellows look and find the sunshine I always look and find the rain Some fellows make a winning sometime I never even make a gain, believe me I'm always chasing rainbows Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain I've Looked to the west as the sun goes down And I've followed its glorious rays But the faster I'd run, I would miss the sun My life's full of wasted days I've always been a natural loser Each thing I touch must fall If good luck ever came to me It would never seem right at all I'm always chasing rainbows Watching clouds drifting by My schemes are just like all of my dreams Ending in the sky Some fellows look and find the sunshine I always look and find the rain Some fellows make a winning sometime I never even make a gain, believe me I'm always chasing rainbows Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2013)
