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 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

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

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

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