The Rainbow Connection
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 s'posed to be...
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.
Laa, da daa dee da daa daa,
La laa la la laa dee daa doo...

Moving Right Along
Movin' right along in search of good times and good news,
With good friends, you can't lose,
This could become a habit.
Opportunity just knocked,
Let's reach out and grab it,
Together we'll nab it.
Ya! We'll hitch-hike, bus, or yellow cab it.
(spoken) Cab it?

Movin' right along
Foot-loose and fancy free.
Gettin' there is half the fun; come share it with me.
Movin' right along!
Doog-a-doog-a-doog-a-doo
We'll learn to share the load.
We don't need a map to keep this show on the road.

Movin' right along we found a life on the highway,
And your way is my way--
So trust my navigation.
California here we come, come pie-in-the-sky land.
Palm trees and warm sand--
Though sadly we just left Rhode Island.

Movin' right along Hey, L.A., where have you gone? Send someone to fetch us, we're in Saskatchewan.
Movin' right along
Doog-a-doog-a-doog-a-doo
You take it, you know best.
Hey, I've never seen the sun come up in the West.

Movin' right along
We're truly birds of a feather,
We're in this together--
And we know where we're goin'.
Movie stars with flashy cars and life with the top down.
We're stormin' the big town.
Yeah! Storm is right, should it be snowin'?
(spoken) No, I don't think so.

Movin' right along
Foot-loose and fancy free.
You're ready for the big time--
Is it ready for me?
Movin' right along!
Movin' right along!

Never Before
Never before have two souls joined
so freely, and so fast.
For me this is the first time,
and the last.
Is this an angel's wish for men?
Never before and never again.
And where to find the words to sing it's worth
This love was bound for heaven, not for earth
This love was meant to light the stars,
But when we touched, we made it ours.
And would they take it back?
Oh, no, they wouldn't dare
Why should they take it back,
When there's enough to share with all the world,
And fill the heavens above
With left-over love?
Never before, a love that just keeps growing on and on,
To fill each lover's heart and light the dawn.
Is this an angel's wish for men?
Never before and never again.
Never before and never again.

I Hope That Something Better Comes Along
You can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em.
There's somethin' irresistable-ish about 'em.
We grin and bear it 'cause the nights are long.
I hope that somethin' better comes along.
(spoken) Yeah, I know what you mean...

It's no good complainin' and pointless to holler.
If she's a beauty she'll get under your collar.
She made a monkey out of old King Kong,
I hope that somethin' better comes along.

Ah, but what could be better than a saucy Irish setter
When puppy love comes on strong?
Or a collie that's classy, a laddie needs a lassie,
A lover and wife gives you a new leash on life.

(spoken) Uh, Rowlf, was that a new 'leash' on life?
(spoken) Oh yeah...sorry about that.

I don't mean to scare ya, my friend, but I betcha
Come "Father's Day", the litter bug's gonna getcha;
The urge is righteous, but the face is wrong.
I hope that somethin' better comes along.

Still, it's fun when they're fetching,
And agree to see an etching
That you keep at your lily pad.
There is no solution, it's part of evolution,
You'll sooner hear the soles,
The little feet of tadpoles.
(spoken) Ah, Rowlf, tadpoles don't have feet!
(spoken) Oh. Sorry about that.... 2, 3, 4.
There's no limitation to mixin' and matchin'
Some get an itchin' for a critter they've been scratchin'.
A skunk was badgered the results were strong.
I hope that somethin' better,
I hope that somethin' better,
I hope that somethin' better comes along!!!
Beep bop bidder da dum dum bum bum bum!

Can You Picture That
Ohhh yeah! Whooo!
Everybody's lover, everybody's brother, I wanna be your lifetime friend.
Crazy as a rocket, nothin in my pocket, I keep it at the rainbow's end.
I never think of money, I think of milk 'n honey, grinnin like a cheshire cat.
I focus on the pleasure, somethin' I can treasure, can you picture that?
Can you picture that?
(spoken) Hey, Floyd, Pick a verse!
Let me take your picture, add it to the mixture, there it is I got you now!
Really nothin' to it, anyone can do it, it's easy and we all know how.
Now begins the changin', mental rearrangin', nothing's really where it's at,
Now the Eiffel Tower's holdin up a flower. Can you picture that?

Fact is there's nothin out there you can't do
Yeah, even Santa Claus believes in you.
Beat down the walls, begin, believe, behold, begat.
Be a better drummer, be an up and comer. Can you picture that?
CAN YOU PICTURE THAT?

All of us are winnin, pickin and a-grinnin, Lordy but I love to jam
Jelly-belly gigglin, dancin and a-wigglin, honey that's the way I am!
Lost my heart in Texas, Northern lights affect us, I keep it underneath my hat,
Aurora Borealis, shinin down on Dallas! Can you picture that?
Can you picture that?
(Chorus)
Can you picture? You gotta see it in your mind!
Can you picture? You know it's quick and easy to find!
Can you picture? You don't have to buy a frame!
Can you picture? Can you picture that?
Can you picture that?

Use it if you need it
Don't forget to feed it!
Can you picture that?
(spoken) Oh wow, can you get behind it? Fer shurely...

Im Going To Go Back There Someday
This looks familiar, vaguely familiar,
Almost unreal, yet, it's too soon to feel yet.
Close to my soul, and yet so far away.
I'm going to go back there someday.
Sun rises, night falls, sometimes the sky calls.
Is that a song there, and do I belong there?
I've never been there, but I know the way.
I'm going to go back there someday.
Come and go with me, it's more fun to share,
We'll both be completely at home in midair.
We're flyin', not walkin', on featherless wings.
We can hold onto love like invisible strings.
There's not a word yet for old friends who've just met.
Part heaven, part space, or have I found my place?
You can just visit, but I plan to stay.
I'm going to go back there someday.
I'm going to go back there someday.

The Magic Store/Rainbow Connection Reprise
It starts when we're kids, a show-off in school;
Makin' faces at friends, you're a clown and a fool.
Doin' prat-falls and bird-calls and bad imitations;
Ignoring your homework, now that's dedication.
You work to the mirror, you're getting standing ovations.

You're burning with hope, you're building up steam.
What was once juvenilish is
grown-up and stylish,
You're close to your dream.
Then somebody out there loves you,
Stands up and hollers for more;
More!
You found a home at the Magic Store.

"The Rainbow Connection" (reprise)
Why are there so many songs about rainbows?
That's part of what rainbows do.
Rainbows are memories, sweet dream reminders
What is it you'd like to do?
All of us watching, and wishing we'd find it;
I've noticed, you're watching too.
Someday you'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and you.

Lifes Like a movie, write your own ending,
Keep believing, keep pretending,
Weve just done what we set out to do
Thanks to the lovers, the dreamers, and you.
