Judy Garland – Over The Rainbow lyrics

Someplace where there isn't any trouble. .. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto?
There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It's far, far away. ..
Behind the moon, 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 blueand the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
Someday I'll wish upon a starand 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?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, Why oh why can't I?

Reprise (from scene in the witch's castle)
Someday I'll wake and rub my eyes, And in that land beyond the skies you'll find me.
I'll be a laughing daffodiland leave the silly cares that fill my mind behind me.
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, Why oh why can't I?

Complete Lyrics from the Original Sheet Music
When all the world is a hopeless jumbleand 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 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?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, Why oh why can't I?
