Rainbow 'Round My Face
by C. Carson Parks
Rainbow Ďround my face, I know you see it
Coloring the sight of your good-byes
Itís the sunlight of the smile that I am wearing
Shining through the teardrops from my eyes

When you see the color of a rainbow
And wonder at itís beauty so divine
Remember sun alone canít make a rainbow
It takes a little rain to make it shine.

Rainbow Ďround my face, I know you see it
Coloring the sight of your good-byes
Itís the sunlight of the smile that I am wearing
Shining through the teardrops from my eyes

I smile so they wonít know that I am grieving
And that youíll ďbe back home just any dayĒ
But darling, donít you know that by your leaving
Youíre turning all my sunny days to grey?

Rainbow Ďround my face, I know you see it
Coloring the sight of your good-byes
Itís the sunlight of the smile that I am wearing
Shining through the teardrops from my eyes
