Talon Just Reminded Me...

Y'know, even if he hadn't left us anything else, I'd be grateful to Jim Henson for this song:

The Rainbow Connection by Paul Williams
(as performed by Kermit the Frog)

Why are there so many
songs about rainbows
and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are images
but only illusions
and rainbows have nothing to hide.

So we've been told and
some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong
wait and see
Someday we'll find it
the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers,
and me

Who said that every wish
we be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it
look what it's done so far

What's so amazing that
keeps us stargazing
and what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it
the rainbow connection
the lovers, the dreamers,
and me

All of us under its spell
we know that it's probably magic

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that
calls the young sailor?
The voice might be one and the same

I've heard it too many
times to ignore it
it's something that I'm s'posed to be
someday we'll find it
the rainbow connection
the lovers, the dreamers,
and me
