Look to The Rainbow by Astrud Gilberto. From the LP “Look to The Rainbow” Released: 1966. Track 7.


ON THE DAY I WAS BORN,
Said my father, said he.
I’ve 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.

So I bundled my heart
And I roamed the world free;
To the East with the lark
To the West with the sea.
And I searched all the earth
And I scanned all the skies,
But I found it all at last,
In my own true love’s eyes.

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.
Oh the lure of that song
Kept her feet funnin’ 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.
Follow the fellow,
Follow the fellow,
Follow the fellow
Who follows a dream.
