When all the world
Is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic lane

When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane
To a place behind the sun just a step beyond the rain

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 care 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 way 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?

If happy little bluebirds fly over the rainbow
Why oh why can't I?
