leahmiriam, this one's for you

So Z104 is having a "request-a-thon" to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. For a $30 donation you can have any song you want played on the radio, even if it isn't their normal genre. They've played reggae and rap and country and alternative and oldies and all sorts of stuff they don't normally play. (personally, I want to see if I can get them to play Beethoven or hava negilah...but I wouldn't hear it anyway, since I'm at work). If they don't have it, they say, they'll find it and play it.

So this morning they played "The Rainbow Connection". *Sniff*. Lauren, you're the only one who will understand why I was stifling sobs. *sniff*

So here it is:

Rainbow Connection
Written by Paul Williams and used by Kermit the Frog, of The Muppets, Jim Henson Productions

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 every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we 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, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa
