As dievca slushed through the melting snow,
she ran into some Rainbows and began to daydream…

Chasing Rainbows 1930 Movie

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 always 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 some time
I never even make a gain, believe me
I’m always chasing rainbows
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain

I’ve looked to the west as the sun goes down
And I’ve followed its glorious rays
But the faster I’d run I would miss the sun
My life’s full of wasted days
I’ve always been a natural loser
Each thing I touch must fail
If good luck ever came to me it would never seem right at all



“I’m Always Chasing Rainbows” is a popular Vaudeville song. The music is credited to Harry Carroll, although the melody is actually adapted from Fantaisie-Impromptu by Frédéric Chopin. The lyrics were written by Joseph McCarthy, and the song was published in 1917 and introduced in the Broadway show Oh, Look! which opened in March, 1918. The song was sung in the show by The Dolly Sisters. Judy Garland sang it in the 1941 film Ziegfeld Girl. It was subsequently sung by Jack Oakie in the 1944 film The Merry Monahans and was again featured in the 1945 film The Dolly Sisters (1945 in film), where it was sung by John Payne. It was also included for part of the run (and in the cast album) of the 1973 revival of Irene.


A “Thank You” to for the idea.

    I have been told to inject more color into my wardrobe…in my surroundings, i have always preferred subdued hues, calming colors, never white, rarely neon, but Rainbows- they are the exception! Nature-made and such a sign of life and loveliness after the storm. Pretty post, d.

      I wear so much black here in NYC – I make an effort to decorate in color and wear colors for a Gala/Wedding/Dinner. The rainbows always make me smile. I’m not a “Little”, but I do like color. XO


  3. I love that shower (don’t know if I’d still love it after visiting Vegas but that’s to be discovered)… xxx

    I just love that rainbow/oil slick effect on anything but the holly grail for me would be a pair of ballet flats. Tieks makes such a pair of flats but sadly this boy missed out.
