There's a rainbow, yeah

Of a heart we parted

My love is gone, forever
But deep down in my heart
I'll love her forever an ever, ha!

There's a rainbow
Oh-oh-oh, in my heart
Now, baby, baby, baby
C'mon now, baby
Now, listen to me

I'm down on my knees
Ooo-yeah, yeah-yeah
Please, listen to my plea
Ooo-yeah, oh-yeah, a-ay-yeah
I'm a-looking up above
Ooo-yes, up above
Prayed for your love, oh-yeah, ha!

Please, please stop this rainbow
Oh-whoa-oh, in my heart
Baby, baby, baby
C'mon now, baby
C'mon stop this rainbow

A-ha-ha, yeah!
