Wish me a rainbow and wish me a star,
All this you can give me wherever you are;
And dreams for my pillow, and stars for my eyes,
And a masquerade ball where our love wins first prize.

Wish me red roses and yellow balloons,
And carousels whirling to gay dancing tunes;
I want all these treasures, the most you can give,
So wish me a rainbow as long as I live.

All my tomorrows depend on your love,
So wish me a rainbow above.

Wish me red roses and yellow balloons,
And carousels whirling to gay dancing tunes;
I want all these treasures, the most you can give,
So wish me a rainbow as long as I live.

All my tomorrows depend on your love,
So wish me a rainbow above.
