Somewhere over the rainbow
Up in the sky
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why, didn't know why, can I

Birds fly over the rainbow
Way up in the sky, oh, tell me why
Of all the little blue birds flying over the rainbow
Why, didn't know why, can I

But someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up with the clouds are far behind me, hey
Well, troubles build like lemon drops
Way above the chimney tops
That's where you find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Up in the sky, well, tell me why
Of all the little blue birds flying over the rainbow
Why, didn't know why, tell me why, didn't know why
Why, didn't know why, can I

    You got the wrong words for over the rainbow...

    Substitute "why , then oh why" in lieu of "why, didnt know why. "
