Top O' the Mornin'!

Finian's Rainbow

On the day I was born,
Said my father, said he.
I've an an elegant legacy
Waitin' for ye,
'Tis a rhyme for your lip
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 stream.
Look, look
Look to the rainbow.
Follow the fellow
Who follows a dream.

'Twas a sumptuous
To bequeath to a child.
For the lure of that song
Keeps my heart runnin’ wild.
“Tis a rhyme for me lip
And a song for me heart
And I sing it whenever the world falls apart.

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.

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 searched all the earth
And I scanned all the skies
But I found it at last in my 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.

'Twas a sumptuous
To bequeath to a child.
For 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.

Happy St. Patricks day!
("Look to the fellow who follows a dream" is going to be running in my head all day.)
