Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Fingers, it came naturally from it became very closely associated with the banjo, and Carmen is actually on display at the American Banjo Museum in Oklahoma City. There's this such a special sound to it. It goes particularly well with Kermit's voice E broke out of two in every now and again when I am in the mood. I think I sound you know, pretty good for a frog. It gave us a setting, and it gave us the instrument that he was playing with which kind of gives you the beginnings of a definition of an area. You kind of want to go. So what does he have to deal with his water? He has white. He has refracted life. He has rain books. Boy there so many songs about rainbows on what's on the are other side. Rain balls are visions, but only illusions on rainbow does have nothing to hide. You know the moment I heard Rainbow connection. I knew that it was special. And I knew that it had a message. And you don't have to be a frog to get that message. I mean, it doesn't matter where you are on the food chain. You know, we all have our dreams so they will find the rainbow. Next on the lovers, the dreamers on me, e think In many ways, it's the essence of Kermit, which is some sweet part of Jim Hansen. Soul that lead us through this song. It just feels like buying a ticket to the power of your imagination and your willingness to go along on the ride and see what wonderful things happen. The Rainbow connection had this yearning about it, trying to reach for something maybe more than we were capable of doing until we realized we could do it. Rainbow connection is the one song that really speaks to that feeling of yearning, you know, to follow your dream to make a difference in the world and to never give up no matter what. It's kind of our anthem. They will find it a rainbow on China lover but three murders.
