Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams
That you've dreamed of
Once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams
That you've dreamed of
Dreams really do come true

Someday
I'll wish upon a star
And wake up
Where the clouds are far
Behind me
Where troubles melts
Like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams
That you dare to
Oh why, oh why can't I?

Well, I see
Trees of green
And red roses too
I'll watch them bloom
For me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Well I see
Skies of blues
And clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying how do you do
They're really saying I
I love you

I hear babies cry
I watch them grow
They'll learn much more
Than really know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

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
Way up high,
And the dreams
That you dare to
Oh, why, oh why can't I?

    To me it means that even when things get really bad there's a rainbow to help you to remember all of the good things. Like lemon drops :)

    Lugu elust. Kuidas minna ja olla, kuidas jääda. Täiesti isiklik ei ole, kuid kui hakata sõnu vaatama, siis on see midagi enamat kui lihtsalt olemine.
