My older brother, JR, wrote me a new version of the theme tune to kids’ TV programme Rainbow when I was a kid. In his version, the lyrics explained how a rainbow is formed. It’s possible he nicked it from somewhere, but I’ve never come across it anywhere else. Anyway, it’s very cool, so I thought I’d share it.
Up above the streets and houses
Rainbow flying high
Everyone can see it shining
But they don’t know why
It’s because the rain and sun
Together make it so
The rain acts as a prism
And refracts the sun’s bright glow
He wrote it on a piece of paper (he has amazing handwriting) and left it in the kitchen for me with no explanation. I would have been about 10.
