Paroles originales[modifier | modifier le code]

(Ci-dessous, telles que dans le film Les Muppets, le retour de 2011)

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbow's are visions
But only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some chose tooo be-lieve 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 star gazing
And What do we think we might see

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers the dreamers and me

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that called 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 s'pposed to be

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
