There's a rainbow 'round my shoulder,
And a sky of blue above,
Oh, the sun shines bright, the world's all right,
'Cause I'm in love!

There's a rainbow 'round my shoulder,
And it fits me like a glove!
Let it blow or storm, I'll be warm,
'Cause I'm in love!

Hallelujah, how the folks will stare,
When they see the diamond solitaire,
That my little sugar baby
Is gonna wear!
Yes, sir!

There's a rainbow 'round my shoulder,
And a sky of blue above,
I'm gonna shout so the whole world will know,
Hallelujah, I'm in love!
