When all the clouds
Darken up the sky way
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane
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 our dreams
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
Blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Then why
Then oh why can't I?

If happy little blue birds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

    Its not the same to video , in the lyrics are parts there arent in the video like : "somewhere over the rainbow
    Skies are blue
    And our dreams
    The dreams that you dare to dream
    Really do come true"
    I cant understand it.
