On the day I was born, said me father, said he
I've an an elegant legacy, waitin' for ye
'Tis a rhyme for your lips and a song for your heart
To sing it whenever the world falls apart

Look, look, look to the rainbow
Follow it over the hill and the stream
Look, look, look to the rainbow
Follow the fellow who follows a dream

'Twas a sumptuous gift to bequeath to a child
For the lure of that song keeps me head runnin' wild
For you never grow old and you never stand still
With whippoorwills singin' beyond the next hill

Look, look, look to the rainbow
Follow it over the hill and the stream
Look, look, look to the rainbow

Follow the fellow who follows a dream

So I bundled me heart and I roamed the world free
To the east with the lark, to the west with the sea
And I've searched all the earth and I've scanned all the skies
But I found it at last in me own true love's eyes

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

Follow, the fellow, follow, the fellow
Follow, the fellow who follows a dream
