Verse:
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 it the world's to blame, I wonder if it could be me?
 
Chorus:
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 wining sometime, I never even make a gain, Believe me,
I'm Always Chasing Rainbows,
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain.
