Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high

And the dreams that you dream of, once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly

And the dreams that you dream of, dreams really do come true

 

Someday I’ll wish upon a star

Wake up where the clouds are far behind me.

Where trouble melts like lemon drops,

High above the chimney top,

That’s where you’ll find me.

 

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly

And the dream that you dare to

Why, oh why can’t I?

 

Someday I’ll wish upon a star

Wake up where the clouds are far behind me.

Where trouble melts like lemon drops,

High above the chimney top,

That’s where you’ll find me.

 

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high

And the dream that you dare to

Why, oh why can’t I?
