What Color Are YouAlbum: To All Purple Tree Trunks
v1) We are a rainbow people chasing a rainbow dream Across the dark, starry sky of our own time And each of us is a color though we may not know what it is We each have a place in the rainbow where we can shine
CH: What color are you, what color are you Where in the rainbow do you shine, red yellow or blue Somewhere just around the bend - it isn’t far, my friend Somewhere this side of the rainbow’s end There’s a place for you to shine, too
v2) “Whatcha gonna be when you grow up?” You’ve heard it many times before Some of us know but for others it’s a mystery Just where you fit in the rainbow doesn’t come printed on your hand It’s a process of change, pain and joy and discovery (learnin’ to see ... )
Are you a blue sky gazer or a yellow beam of sweet sunshine An earth friend with a tender conscience of green Are you red with the world’s books with a passion to write some more Are you orange or a raging purple Or a combination that’s never been seen before?
v3) We are a rainbow people chasing a rainbow dream We need your color to make our picture clear To make the world a little more beautiful Is the task of your lifetime And on the way you may find the reason you are here
Yes, somewhere this side of the rainbow’s end There’s a place for you to shine, too!
