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 ev'ry wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star-gazing?
And what do we think we might see
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Coda:
All of us under it's 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 supposed to be
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

La la la le la la loo
La la la la le la la loo

    The meaning to me is that we as people are taught to think that peace and unity are within reach, but it is not true peace and unity. We have to really believe in peace and unity and bring ourselves to understand and connect with people of all faiths and walks of life and really connect with them like all the colors of the rainbow.

    It means that there is an upside to life. I think it is a very good song, sung by kermit and austin scarlett so i like it.

    This song means, that to get to your goals you must not just rely on stars, and rainbows. You must get out there and pursue your own goal... To find your dream aka "rainbow connection. "

    I think this song is about how we always look to stars and wishes, but really all that can help anything come true is you and all spell. It's about how together there could really be something on the other side of the rainbow. Anything can be magic!
