Youíre always looking for the rainbow
So you can find the gold
Bring that your luck could pull you through
Youíre always looking for the rainbow, babe
So you can find the gold
And all the time itís right in front of you

Youíre always looking for the greener pastures 
On the other side
Hoping that your dreams will all come true
Youíre always looking for the greener pastures 
On the other side
And all the time theyíre right in front of you

Gypsy waggons leaving hear them singing ladidadida
Better run or youíll be left behind
Maybe somewhere therís a strange young girl
You havenít met
Somewhere in the shadows of your mind

Youíre always looking for that paradise
You donít care whom you sacrifice
One day all your chances will be gone
That paradise is in storybooks 
and all you can do is look
and if you ever get there youíll be all alone.
