(Tune: Hush, Little Baby)
Rainbow purple, rainbow blue
Rainbow green and yellow, too
Rainbow orange, rainbow red
Rainbow smiling overhead.
Come and count the colors with me
How many colors can you see?
One, two, three, down to green,
Four, five, six can be seen
Rainbow purple, rainbow blue,
Rainbow green and yellow, too.
Rainbow orange, rainbow red,
Rainbow smiling overhead.
(Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)
Rainbow over the waterfall, waterfall, waterfall,
Rainbow over the waterfall, Rainbow over the tree.
Rainbow over the mountain, mountain, mountain,
Rainbow over the mountain, Rainbow over the sea.
Rainbow over the flowers, flowers, flowers,
Rainbow over the flowers, rainbow over the bee
Rainbow over the dancers, dancers, dancers,
Rainbow over the dancers, Rainbow over me!!
Directions: Children learn the seven colors of the rainbow with this simple skit. You will need seven pieces of paper, any size, in the colors: red, organ, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Children hold the card down at arm's length, in front of them. At this point all we see is the white back of the card. As they recite their lines they flip their color up. It is fun to watch the rainbow grow. Be sure the children let their cards touch, then it will look like a real spectrum.
(Character Dialogue chorus)
Do you think that you would like to know the seven colors of the rainbow?

Yellow: Yellow is third, the third is yellow. Sunny rain showers make the color yellow.
Green: Green is fourth, the fourth is green. Sunny rain showers make the color green.
Blue: Blue is fifth, the fifth is blue. Sunny rain showers make the color blue.
Indigo: Indigo is sixth, the sixth is indigo. Sunny rain showers make the color indigo.

Now that all the colors of the rainbow have been revealed, the rainbow chorus recites together:
"Sparkling prisms, Arching in the sky. A lovely rainbow. A feast for the eye."
In England they use the following sentence to remember the colors of the rainbow. "Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain"
