At the end of the rainbow there's happiness, And to find it often I've tried, But my life is a race, just a wild goose chase, And my dreams have all been denied. Why have I always been a failure? What can the reason be? I wonder if the world's to blame, I wonder if it could be me. Chorus: I'm always chasing rainbows, Watching clouds drifting by, My schemes are just like all my dreams, Ending in the sky. Some fellows look and find the sunshine, I always look and find the rain. Some fellows make a winning sometime, But I never even make a gain, believe me, I'm always chasing rainbows, Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain.
