I Missed the Last Rainbow

I missed the last rainbow
There's not one in sight
It's hard to find rainbows
At this time of night.

I missed the last rainbow
I got here too late
And in between rainbows
There's such a long wait.

My fault I know
Why am I always so slow?
I've such a long way to go
I should be gone.

If I'm to find
The world I see in my mind
Then for the sake of mankind
I'll rainbow on.

I know that I missed the last rainbow
But what if I'm wrong
What if that same rainbow
Stops further along.

And if there's a rainbow
and I'm sure there's one
I'll get on that rainbow
But I'll have to run.

I'll get on that rainbow
But I'll have to run.

Music by John Barry
Lyrics by Don Black
Sung by Michael Crawford
