If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you
And share with you its beauty
On the days you're feeling blue

If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own
A place to find serenity
A place to be alone

If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea
But all these things I am finding
Are impossible for me

I cannot build a mountain
Or catch the rainbow fair
But let me be what I know best
Someone that's always there.

Sammy Kaye, with his tag line Swing and Sway with Sammy Kaye became one of the most famous and leading bands of the so-called Big Band Era

On Sammy Kaye's Sunday Serenade radio program, Kaye would read poetry sent in to his show by amateurs and later several books of poetry from the show were published. The songs and the poems intertwined for a relaxing half hour of entertainment and reflection.
