PEOPLE ARE A RAINBOWby Jan Nigro © 1987 Janimation Music BMI
I love the blue color of the sky,
It brings me happiness.
But if everything I saw were blue,
I’d enjoy that color less.
And there’s the red color of the rose,
Such beauty it can claim.
But if this whole wide world were red,
The rose wouldn’t seem the same.
And what could be more lovely than a rainbow?
Life is a rainbow, so beautiful to see!
People are a rainbow, that’s how it’s meant to be!
Life that’s not a rainbow, that would be a shame.
I’m so glad that we’re not all the same!
Throughout the world, people everywhere,
With different shades of skin,
Like different colored wrapping paper,
To wrap the hearts within.
Throughout the world, there are ways of life,
So wonderful to see.
The whole beauty of creation...
Is its great variety.
