ROY G BIV (In Print)

children's chorus (treble voices) and piano

    Newton found white light splits up when shining through a prism,
    And seven colors form the spectrum’s base chromaticism.
    The colors can be re-combined by sending them back through,
    But try to do the same with paint…you’ll need some optimism.

    Chorus:
    Roy G Biv White light is bent transformative.
    Roy G Biv The colors are consecutive.
    Roy G Biv It’s time to be informative:
    Red and orange yellow green blue indigo and violet.

    Roy G Biv The colors of the spectrum
    Roy G Biv An acronym that’s rather dumb
    Roy G Biv Still it helps remember some:
    Red and orange yellow green blue indigo and violet.

    Spectroscopes are used to study light from outer space.
    Rainbows may be Roy G Biv’s most lovely bands of grace.
    We see spectrums all the time in fountains and lawn sprinklers,
    But R-O-Y-G-B-I-V is never commonplace.

    Chorus:

    Some say rainbows end in pots of gold.
    True that they’re a wonder to behold.
    But common sense says there’s a major hitch:
    Would that it were true we’d all be rich!

    Chorus:
