Someday I'll wish upon an 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

When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble to the ground
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 step beyond the rain

Somewhre 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 whre 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?

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