  • Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
    There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
    Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
    And the dreams that you dare to dream,
    Really do come true.

    Someday I'll wish upon a star
    And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
    Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
    High above the chimney tops,
    That's where you'll find me.

    Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
    Birds fly over the rainbow
    Why then, oh why can't I?
    If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
    Why, oh why can't I?

    Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
    There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
    Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
    And the dreams that you dare to dream,
    Really do come true.

    Someday I'll wish upon a star
    And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
    Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
    High above the chimney tops,
    That's where you'll find me.

    Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
    Birds fly over the rainbow
    Why then, oh why can't I?
    If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
    Why, oh why can't I?
