Jewel – Over The Rainbow lyrics

Words & Music by E.Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen
Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
Theres a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby
Somewhere over that rainbow
All skies are blue, oh
And where dreams
That you dare to dream
Really do come true
Someday Ill wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
And troubles mount like lemon drops
Way above the chimney tops
Thats where youll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly, oh
If birds can fly over the rainbow
Why, then why cant I?
Someday Ill wake and rub my eyes
And in that land beyond the skies
Youll find me
Ill be a laughing daffodil
And leave the silly cares that
Fill my mind behind me
Somewhere over that rainbow
Bluebirds fly
If birds can fly over the rainbow
Why, then why cant I?
If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why cant I?
