Rainbow Connection from "The Muppet Movie"

Kermit the Frog sings this song in the 1979 film The Muppet Movie. It has also been recorded by The Carpenters, Kenny Loggins, and Willie Nelson. A favorite for all ages, I have played this song for weddings, parties, and baptisms.

This piece can be played on pedal harp only.


Lyrics

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 wishes would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Someone 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 sleeping 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

Someday we'll find it,
the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me
