Loggins, Kenny - Rainbow Connection Lyrics

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 you think we might see
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

All of us under its 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

  11. sharon holly

    No matter how  grown I get I still listen to this, I love the pure innocence of it, its added to my collection of winding down  relax songs.

  12. E M

    I am a nanny of twins. I have listen to this song since they were 5 weeks old and now they are 8 months. Every time I play this song I rock them and they always fall a sleep... It's like they know this is the nap time song...so sweet!

  13. Kamihamiha!

    First rainbow connection Then Your Heart Will Lead You Home

  14. Styd' Antoine Tbk

    So beautiful, thinking it's from a kid show

  15. Robert Dikes


  16. Rnld Lee

    the best version song by Kenny Loggins 🎹🎵👍

  17. Lethal Discharge

    The rhythm of this song is imprinted in my brain from early childhood bedtime songs. I just listened to it now at 21 years old. And it was almost cathartic.

  18. Joe Donahue

    When you make a connection,then and only then,will you see RAINBOWS!!!!

  19. kelly watkins

    When my children were young this was their bedtime music. Tonight I attended my granddaughters school concert and they killed this. Amazing when 45 kids voices all blend into a beautiful harmony. The tears started and I had to step out for a moment to fix my leaking eyes.

  20. Diana Montero

    Kenny Loggins is soooooooooooooooooo underrated. Love him.

  21. mak hines

    best version.......

  22. Jisela's LiFé

    The tears 😹 love it, now officially my lullaby

  23. Cinnaminimin


  24. Veronica Herrera

    Best lullaby album ever!!!! I'm 54 n love this.

    Sweet dreams

  25. ball coach

    This is the most beautiful song ever.

  26. Mary.Ann. Stachowiak

    The voices calling sailors was to their death. When I Pray up God's, Promises in His Reignbows? Nobody's going to die, unless, in a ,
    'little death', as the French
    considered, Climaxing with another instantanelly... God Bless how He built us to...every nerve placed so perfectly to feel the way I
    and my lover's connection
    was meant to be! Let It Be, yes, Mary Ann is my name ...

  27. Khalid Saleh


  28. Jeanette De Jesus

    Thank you so much for this, although it hurts my heart when I hear it, it somehow brings me peace.  Thank you.

    Kym Kantaris

    Jeanette De Jesus agree

    Bill Gasior

  29. Firefly

    Great version. Even Kenny likes Kermits version best. Beautiful song.

  30. Toby Blake

    all the dreamers up and died; now we're left with schemers

    Logan Gamble

    That's not true; I'm still here. I'm still a dreamer, and although I may be broken, I'm still trying to put a little bit of light back into the world. I hope you face a good day!

    Muskrat 368

    :D Me too

    Lacey Rodgers

    NO SHIt man where are my rainbows 🌈 at?

    I’m not trying to be rude, but it sounds weird when you spell it “poo”, as the character’s name is “Pooh”. Just saying

    I love this song <3

  50. 1curlygirl99

    Awesome song

  51. Michael Chan

    Aww so many memories. Thanks for uploading this!

  52. Ron Brown

    Great rendition by Kenny Loggins (as usual).
    Karen Carpenter also has a great version.

  53. Frank D. Daniel

    I like Kermit's and Willie's better

    carl lipsey

    Frank D. Daniel Kermit's is the best, willie is real good to

  54. Jim Carey

    A mistake is a mistake. No need to berate, but no need to coddle, either.

  55. Mary Carvalho

    I like the revivals! I agree with you completely &I would even add that on the same album his rewrite of pooh corner is better than the first. Not only in verse, but if you go back and listen to him sing this song early in his career (which I loved), the way he sings it in later years as "return to pooh corner" far exceeds, at least in my mind, the original!!! I love that he still speaks to a wide audience. Perhaps I'll see some of you at the Saratoga Mountain Winery in August when he performs!

  56. Tommy Mattson

    This is really awesome song

  57. Rey Fong


  58. 1peterpann

    WOW very pretty!!! one of the best rendition`s I`ve heard Thank`s well done!

  59. RENATO1942

    I heard it today on the Radio while driving. It stuck all day with me... in my mind and in my heart. Such a very beautiful dreamy music. A tribute to Jim Henson....R.I.P.

  60. Camille Christie

    ConHolio ~ Thank you for the gift of this. I had the tape but it has been missing since our last move (11 yrs ago) I'm still hoping to find it stashed in some unusual spot. ;) Makes me think of the innocence of childhood and also makes me think of my Mom. Sadly, both are gone. :'(

    It made me a little sad for a few minutes, but more than that... it made me smile and remember. Thanks for that! ♥

    Blessings & Joyous Howls,

  61. Glenn Clarita

    When my son was 5 years old and we happened to be in the car, he always requested me to put this song in the player...today he's a musician enrolled in university. Do not apologize for spelling mistakes, you did well. Kenny Loggins version is my favourite...thank you for posting.

  89. Obd1andDown

    I remember this...

    my dad had a navy blue 95 1500 Chevy extra cab truck, him and my mom would play this on the radio and go for a drive to get me to fall asleep at night.

  90. Maddie Boucher

    I love this song, makes me cry every time, don't we all miss our childhoods?

  91. Kim Anne

    Love Kenny Loggins and all he has done to create a wonderful world for all of us. This song was originally created by Karen Carpenter as a way to introduce her brothers use of a child's piano. Very sweet song.

  92. Rebecca Gliserman

    Oh my god.. I don't even know you and started crying when your comment. I cannot imagine what a beautiful experience that must have been. I would have loved to have danced to this song with my father at any time. Good for you and your father. I would have been sobbing the whole time LOL!

  93. alejandro calvo

    @Whiteknight24601...why is this song so beautiful...no matter who sings it???
