Lyrics Edit

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a land that I 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
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then oh, why can't I?

(When all the world is a whole glass jumbled
And the raindrops tumble all around
There's an old place of magic ways)

A place behind the sun
Just a step behind the rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds 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?
