I Can Sing a Rainbow

I Can Sing a Rainbow was written by Arthur Hamilton but the song became very popular when Peggy Lee sang it in the 1955 musical Pete Kelly’s Blues.

The song continued to be popular over the decades as it is used to teach kids the name of colors. While it has been successfully teaching colors, the song does not teach kids the colors
of the rainbows as neither pink or purple are part of the rainbow.

I Can Sing a Rainbow Lyrics

Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow too

Listen with your eyes
Listen with your ears
And sing everything you see
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing along with me

Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow too
