Perry Como - "Im Always Chasing Rainbows" lyrics

I'm Always Chasing Rainbows
Perry Como
Words by Josephy McCarthy and music by Harry Carooll.

An ASCAP top seller (based on Chopin) was introduced by Harry Fox and the
Dolly Sisters in "Oh, Look!" in 1918. Revived for the 20th Century Fox
film biography of Roszika and Jansci Dolly in 1945 and
MGM's "Ziegfeld Girl" in 1946. Also used in the 1973 Broadway musical
"Irene" starring Debbie Reynolds.

At the end of the rainbow there's happiness
And to find it how 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'

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,
I never even make a gain, Believe me,
I'm always chasing rainbows,
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain.
